JOFY inspired

Good afternoon, I have been playing with JOFY's new stamps and had a go a decorating one of my journals. Jo showed some covers she had decorated on the Paper Artsy blog this week, you can see her ones here.

I started by brayering some snowflake on to the cover then dried this and used a small foam sponge to add more. I really liked where it picked up on the braying.

The colour was added in small dots and then blended in. Once I had all the blue on I wanted I added some Orchid and then some French roast to grunge it up a bit.

I used some of my homemade stamps to add some more depth in contrasting colours using archival ink as when it is heat set it becomes waterproof.

Once it was dry I stamped JOFY stamps from JOFY 24 and from her mini JM16 in black archival ink.

I filled in all the areas with snowflake so that I could paint ontop and get a colour more true to the original.

I used twinkling H2O's to colour the stamps 

I also used some liquid pearls to add some mor texture.

Next I stamped a sentiment cut it up a decorated itbefore sticking it in place. 

I am really pleased with the finish look especially the effect of the book cover being grooved as it added more interest.

Thank you for looking.

I would love to read you comments
