On AFTCM we are making Journal Pages for a lottery with the theme "My Story". Someone will have their name drawn randomly and that person will receive all the pages.
I started a page by colouring the background with distress paints in a couple of different colours. I then stencilled some images with another colour of distress paint. I stamped some Dylusions stamps with the paint as well as Tim Holtz stamp. On the sides I stamped two more Tim Holtz stamps and Hero Arts stamps with Ancient Page Indigo ink. Then I did some "paper lifting" over some gessoed areas with newspaper pieces and coloured them with distress inks.
I added some words using some magazine and stamped pieces coloured with the Distress inks and glued them to the page. I had a favourite butterfly image in my stash so I cut it out and attached it to the page and drew in the antennas.
Added some more stencilling with Viva gold modelling cream.
To finish the piece, I stamped the sentiment at the bottom with Archival ink.
I thought I would try another page and started by spraying the page with Dylusions sprays.
I added some stencilling by spraying over them, then added other details with stamps and Adirondack ink pads.
I added some sentiments/words with archival ink and various stamps.
