Hope Thursday was a good one for you! We had a rainy night here last night and heard about the terrible news in Granbury, Texas before bed! Our storms actually came around 3:00 a.m. as I woke by hearing the hail on the tin roof. My immediate thought was my car, but by the time I made it out of bed the hail had stopped but HEAVY rain, thunder and lightning soon took it's place. It turned out to be a beautiful sunny day this afternoon.
OK, Tonight I wanted to share with you all a page I did in my art journal for Inspiration Emporium. This month's challenge is all about the quotes! So I thought I better get started and get my projects done.
Last night, I had a blast with a fun journal page. I opened the book to a blank page and just went for it. Here she goes....
How it was made....
I sprayed the background page with Dylusions Postbox Red (get it?) and Black Marble Ink Sprays. I then used the large Dylusions Letter Jumble stencil with Dylusions White Linen Spray Ink for a little background noise. I then used the Black Marble Spray Ink with the Dylusions Diamond of a Border stencil for just a bit more background action.
With that done, I cut a 12 x 12 piece of Manila Cardstock in half. I scored the bottom and top 1/2-inch in from the top piece and again on the bottom piece. I applied Scor-Tape to the fold and adhered the bottom piece to the journal page. Next, I found the center of the top piece and used my craft knife to form the "Envelope Flap." I then added the Scor-Tape to the scored edge and adhered that to the top of the journal page. Last, I sprayed both the front and backside with Dylusions Melted Chocolate Ink Spray. I added some of Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps to the front in Archival Ink.
For the seal, I stamped the Tim Holtz Compass to Manila Card with Embossing ink and added Black embossing powder. When that was done I cut the compass out and added more embossing ink and dipped it in UTEE three times to build up the layers. I sprayed some Crinkle Ribbon with Dylusions Postbox Red, dried it and adhered that to the back of the seal. I glued the seal to the envelope flap.
Back to the inside, I taped two strips of Tim Holtz Tissue Tape to Manila card and cut the strips out. I used the Tiny Attacher and stapled the strips to the journal page on each end. I also added a bit of the Dylusions Melted Chocolate Ink Sprays with my finger to age the strips a bit.
Last, I used the McGill Mini Envelope Punch (I believe this punch has been discontinued...Think about using coin envelopes or your We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.) and punched out 8 envelopes. I added some quotes to these and folded them and placed them on the strips with Tim Holtz Mini Paperclips.....Done!
Hope you like the page. It was a fun addition to my journal.
