My first Journal Page!

Ok so you already know I bought a new journal today. You also know I drew a picture... So the two go hand in hand and I decided to do my first proper art journal page :).

I wanted to use a Tim Holtz stamp but the one I had wasn't big enough :( So I took my metal ruler and a sharpie and drew my own rays. I then coloured the rays in.

I completed colouring and hated the straight lines! So I added a bit extra to my lines ;) I then grabbed a Pitt Big Brush Marker in Light Pthalo Green and filled in in between the lines. I like the streakiness of both markers on this journal paper as it lends to the ray feeling.  In fact I tried to make them extra streaky! lol

I grabbed some Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps from a bunch of sets and my Picket Fence Distress Stain and stamped various images around the rays. Love love love the dropping butterfly! I then grabbed my Snow Cap Paint Dabber and used the stamp with the words Love wish dream on it at the bottom of the page over the top of the other images :)

You can also see in the above pic a a few extra colours lol I was testing my pitt markers to see which I would use...

I then grabbed an Autum Leaves Stampology alpha to stamp Purples Journal in black stazon. I noticed at this point the white paint was lifting some of the stazon colour into it. Good to know for future reference!


  1. Love the colours on the background, the white images look cool!

  2. That's a great duo of colours - a great start to your page -it will be a fabulous journal! Thanks so much for joining in with the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Sarah.
