Hi everyone, here is my first journal page for Journal Soup organised by the lovely Kate aka the Kathryn Wheel. If you want to know more about it then just pop along to Kate's blog where you will find the details or on Face Book.
The background consists of torn strips of black and white paper and strips of masking tape all to give texture. I coated the majority of the page with Gesso and pressed a piece of card into it to give added texture, when it was dry I sprayed Dylusion inks.
I used Dyan's ghosting technique through a Dylusion stencil and sprayed through the stencil too I stamped on to the page with Dylusion stamps "Basic Backgrounds". The images and borders were I think from Tumblefish Studios. I used my Portfolios around the images,circles and computer generated quotes to give yet more texture. I am quite pleased with this page I may later add more to it but for the moment I am happy with it.

I had my February page already to go last Monday but forgot to blog it until just now when I went to link it to Kate's blog page and realised it wasn't on here but anyway here it is now. The background is done with Gelatos then Dylusion inks sprayed through stencils, my journal squares are Blonde Moments and my images etc are from the Octopode Factory
. I had no idea what I was going to do when I started it but it all came together as I worked on the page, hope you like it.


Hi everyone, I was at AFTH last Friday. It was art journalling for us regulars, it was a brill day and we did something completely different, at least I had never done a page like it. We were given the task of finding a face in a magazine to stick in our journals on a page with a completed background and this is the result.
