Dream Believe Art Journal Page

Happy Saturday!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! It was sunny and in the 50's here so I got a jump on spring and grilled some burgers outside today :)


I've been playing around with my Dylusions sprays and stamps, and today I have a page from my journal to share with you :)


The paper was misted with water and then spritzed with Vibrant Turquoise and Calypso Teal. A Crafter's Workshop Numbers stencil was placed over the paper and spritzed with London Blue. More London Blue was sprayed along the bottom, and Dirty Martini was spritzed along the top. A Dylusions Number Jumble stencil was then placed over the paper and misted with water for a ghosting effect. The numbers stamp from the Dylusions Basic Backgrounds set was randomly stamped with Tim Holtz Weathered Wood Distress Ink. The border along the top is from the Dylusions Further Around the Block stamp set. It was stamped with black Ranger Archival Ink and colored in with a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen as was the checkered floor stamp from Beeswax Rubber Stamps. A mask was placed over the floor and then the vines were stamped around it. The long vines with numbers are from the Dylusions Around the Block stamp set, and the solid ones along the bottom are from the Doodle Parts set. They were colored in with TH water brushes filled with Cherry Pie, Postbox Red, Lemon Zest, Pure Sunshine and Squeezed Orange Dylusions sprays.


Dependable Dotty was stamped with Archival Ink and then colored in with TH Distress Markers in Spiced Marmalade, Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick, Faded Jeans, Broken China, Barn Door, Fired Brick, Spun Sugar and Chipped Sapphire. The wings are from the Dylusions Doolally Dorris set. The bird is from the Birds on a Wire set. Dotty was outlined with a charcoal pencil to give a bit of depth. Dream and Believe are from the Word Love set, colored in with Lemon Zest and outlined with the Gelly Roll pen. The circles are from Paper Wings Productions Art Textures stamp set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp and Show - By the Numbers
  2. Simon Says Stamp - A Bit O' Green
  3. DL.Art - March Linky Party
  4. Sunday Funday #7 - March Linky Party
  5. Craft It Up & Link It Up - Linky Party

Another great journal page, Lisa. I am still working on my first double page journal entry. I try to add one step every day, but have been under the weather lately with allergies.(bad here in TX) I can work on my cards in the middle of my bed, but I dare not try dylusions sprays, or I may have to cut up my bedsheets and add them to my journal. Keep up the good work, and TFS.
