The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

Monthly Journalling with Darcy - month 5
Well, I am running late with this again, it's been some time since Darcy published the latest month in her journal year... catch it here.
We are playing with JoFY stencils this time, and once again trying lots of techniques.. time will tell, if I have a go at the paper casting...
As urged by Darcy, ("you can do it while you watch the football") I did just that, and stamped onto tissue for step 2.
The next night, I went back to the beginning and scraped Frescos onto the page with an old credit card. I've used slightly different colours to Darcy - Tinned Peas, Rusty Rose, Sherbert, and the Mocha Mousse and Guacamole that Darcy used.
Tore the tissue stamping and applied with matte medium and a finger... dried matte medium takes ages to pick off....
Following Darcy's step by step I added Chalk Fresco lightly with a palette knife and started stencilling
love the effect the blue border has, using torn scrap paper as a border stencil.
next steps in progress - flowers, the window and the wheelbarrow.
I didn't do the paper casting like Darcy did so successfully, but used die cuts from old painty baby wipes instead - the wheel, butterflies and flower
i had to use the Tim Holtz arch for the window and cut some strips of card for the bars.
Because my journal is smaller than Darcy's, my wheelbarrow is lots smaller too, so holds a tiny size 2 tag and my seed packet.
I crackled the background for my tag and stencilled some tinted (Hey Pesto) grunge paste through the Lin Brown leaf stencil.
my finished page.
Once again, Darcy, it was a pleasure doing this page!! Entering Darcy's journal challenge here
