Here is the final week (and a bit) from the daily challenge I did in January. 'Person' was a gel plate printed background, then masked shapes and Payne's Grey acrylic paint with white dots. This is a technique I have done before, but it's a good one.
For 'Shape', I knew I wanted to cut a shape into the page, so with a bit of advice from Chris, I did this. I die cut shapes from painty papers and made this colourful page. You can glimpse a future page through the rectangle window.
'Type' was made using some interesting font stamps from my stash and a typewriter stamp from Visible image.
I used some of my own stamped 'Tissue' paper as the background and added shapes in translucent paint.
'Botanical' was inspired by a page from a flower book which I made into the pocket.
Inside the pocket I added a card.
I used stamps and embossing powder to demonstrate 'Resist'.
I went with a vintage feel for 'Travel', just using stamps and ink.
I enjoy creating 'Drip' and it's something that I use in my art journaling too. This one used sparkle watercolour inks.
Two of my favourite books made up the background for 'Book' - 'Persuasion' and 'The Secret Garden'.
'Vintage' meant I could look through my many digikits and find some suitable images. I added an embossed frame and a snippet of material with a button.
The back of the journal was covered with an alcohol ink gel print.
The front was stamped and had a die cut title added.
Finally, the inside cover was stamped and the prompts list was added.
This was such an enjoyable project to do during January and I may well look out for it again this August, for January 2024!
What a wonderful journal you have created Ellie, it is beautiful in every which way.ReplyDelete

January looks to have been some month, Ellie, so many beautiful pages. Looking forward to seeing what you did in February.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Amalia. It was a fun challenge for January. I will be posting about the first eight weeks of my yearly mixed media course (Jan/Feb 2023) soon.Delete
Sparkle watercolour inks!!! I want some! Lovely work Ellie :) xXXReplyDelete
Thanks, Lulu. Mine are actually sparkle pen refill inks, but they work well. Cosmic Shimmer also do a lovely selection of sparkly inks too. Doing this challenge helped January along nicely!Delete
