Hello everyone! First some happy news. Baby Leo couldn't wait any longer and surprised everyone by suddenly arriving 5 weeks before his due date. Time to start exploring the world! He is doing well and so am I. I am very happy and also relieved that all went well. Big brother is very proud. I'll post a photo when we are back home again.
This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog we have a 'touch of clover' challenge. My post is lacking a supply list since I didn't get a chance to complete it before Leo decided it was time. I'll add it as soon as I can [update: I have added it now]. I decided to make a very green art journal page, with a luck theme.
I had fun building up layers in the background of this page, which will go into my Dylusions journal. It started out as a blank watercolour paper. A little bit of Sap Green reinker was mixed into Ranger's new Gloss Texture Paste and the coloured paste was smeared through a star and a mesh stencil. Leave to dry, and the stars will resist the following ink layers. You can see the the stars are a lighter green. Next, I smeared green Distress Inks on my craft sheet, misted with water and pressed the paper into the ink. When dry, the page was misted with various green Distress Sprays Stains, both just here and there and through the Schoolhouse stencil.
The second label with a stamped sentiment. I also added some tissue tape, and really wanted to include the part with the bike. The green wire thread is by Prima.
And some stamped clocks. The cheese cloth was dyed by misting it with Distress Spray Stain.
I hope you will join us this week in our green challenge! As every week, one random participant wins a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
