My gorgeous "secret santa" journal from 2013 is now nearly full - one double page and the final single page, left after this one... Virginia, this has been the best present ever! Good job I've got a similar one to go onto soon...
I was using Eggplant Fresco on Saturday at the WOYWW crop, so this started as drybrushing the leftover ink onto the journal. I went diagonally for a change!
Didn't take any early shots!! I added stencilling also in Eggplant, with the'coffee splat' Crafters Workshop stencil, (added some of the splots in Squid Ink too) and the little squares (Carabelle stencil from Paris) in grunge paste
The scribbly bird was stamped on a dried baby wipe in mostly Eggplant but a little South Pacific, I've been saving it for weeks for a perfect project - stamped the bird onto the baby wipe and cut it out, not bothering with the feet or wing, as that is on the page behind it.
I dry brushed Bora Bora over the dried grunge paste and also the trellis behind the bird.
From my stash of die cut leaves that Sam sent me a "while" ago , before my die arrived, I took 3 white leaves and brayered Beach Hut over them, I wanted a patchy look with some of the white still peeking through.
Really had fun with this one, thanks for looking.
