In the Garden

Morning everyone thanks for popping in today as I have a journal page using new stamps from Jo Firth-Young JOFY 45, 46 for Paper Artsy. I loved these as soon as I saw them. I like stamps with lots of area for me to colour, and in particular flowers. Those that know me know my two loves are faces and flowers, so these new stamps were just my cup of tea.  


Here's some pics of how I created this page.



This is an 8x8 watercolour pad from Prima, it take water and colour well at first, but it doesn't stand up to all I throw at it and will break down. I spritzed the page first and then added my colours - I love Ecoline watercolours! I let each colour spread and then dried it before the next colour. I respeated this with each colour, and once satisfied, I spritzed and flicked water to create the little puddles and runs, left it for a bit then mopped it up and dried the page.



I stamped the design and started to build up the colours using Water Soluble Pencils, a mix of Prima and Inktense. 



The large flowers were also stamped onto Smoothy Card from PA then stuck on. I did this because I wanted the colour to be true? I finished with a sentiment (sorry I don't who by). I used white enamel from Ranger for the dots and small circles which I loved as it add real diamention to them.


I do love the stamps and have lots of ideas so do pop back to see what else I come up with.

Take care as always
