Ellen Vargo Inspired

Last week Ellen's fab stamps were introduced to the world. They are really great and I cannot wait to get some to play. You can see how she used them on the Paper Artsy blog this week. I thought I'd have a go a decorating another journal cover in the style Ellen used. I have had to improvise with stamps but it came out ok.

I started with the same colour combo as my last journal and added some spiral shapes in inky pool 

I used a smaller one with snowflake but because it still had geranium on it from my previous journal it mixed and created a pinky colour which end worked well with the paper I was going use for my flower.

I used a gelly print page I add made at christmas as I loved the colours. I again used geranium archival to my home made stamps then cut them out. I used the same paper for the stalk and and leaves.

I assembled the flower and let it dry.

I decorated the flower using a white paint pen which I also splashed onto the cover. 

Next I added my words 

And then decorated them and added some finishing touches.

And the finished cover

Thank you for looking
