I have been busy getting all of my Christmas cards ready to go out, but today I want to share the next double page of my little positivity journal with you.
If you are wondering what this is all about, you can read about it HERE
Many of you said you want to join me in this, that is fantastic!! There seems to be a little misunderstanding though, some of you said you would only be able to do it once a week... anything is fine of course, but I am not going to art journal every day either. What I will do every day though, is write one positive thing that has happened that day. (Hence all the tags and pockets). Now that does not need to take very long at all, it can be done in two minutes, but I do think it is kind of important to do that bit every day, really to get into the habit of it, but of course everyone can do what they like and what suits their life!
Anyway,for this page I have used one of my old favourite collage techniques, but basically it's very similar in technique to the first one.
1: Add some texture paste through a stencil of your choice.
2. Add some scraps of book pages, tissue and/or washi tape or even scraps of DP
3. Cover with a thin layer of Gesso
4 Add colour with whatever medium you like, I used mainly Gelatos again
5. Add background stamping
6, Add a vocal image either stamped and fussy cut, or stamped directly onto the page or a collage image (as I did this time from the Graphics 45 Place in Time collection)
7. Add rub ons, pockets, tags or whatever you want and the most important bit: HAVE FUN!!!
Here are some close ups still:
Hope all your preparations for the festive season are going to plan, keep breathing!!!
