This is the result of the first page. Not completely satisfactorily, but I'm happier with it today than I was yesterday... I followed Darcy's instructions (for the most part) in her post here though I did leave some parts out. The stencilling under the page I abandoned as I couldn't get any more paint off, so used one of Jo Firth-Young's new stencils on top. Paint colours are the new Limited Edition Frescos.
I know I didn't follow all of Darcy's steps (like the underpage stencilling, or the silhouette image, but this was a great, fun challenge to take part in. Looking forward to next month - well later this month actually - and the journal is fabulous, strong strong paper - all those layers and no holes created even when I scrubbed and scrubbed!
Off to link it to Darcy's journal challenge here now!
