After creating a background with Acrylic Paint Dabbers in shades of blue and brown, I added some distress ink by inking the lid of a clear box, spraying it with water, then laying it down on top of the journal. Doing it this way means I can see where I am adding the ink!
I then placed a blob of 'Weathered Wood' Distress Ink [ from my re-inker bottle ] onto the page and blew it to create a flower like image. The stem was made with a long drip of ink!
When I put this journal together I included various sizes of plastic pockets used for collecting coins and postcards. I tore an Amazon box into small squares then collaged each square with images from Tim's 'Mini Muse' stamp set, tissue tape, stitching, words from an old book and scraps of paper. I just LoVe decorating little tiny bits like this!
At some point I'll add some written journaling, probably in a grey ink, there's plenty of space!
Don't forget to head over to The StampMan Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the designers have been up too, and I'd just like to say an enormous THaNKYou to everyone who joined in the BLoG HoP celebrating your favourite project of 2010. I'm still visiting people but thanks for all the lovely comments you guys left for me!
