I created this journal page this afternoon for a challenge over on The Craft Garden.
It features a group of housewives racing and tossing pancakes in the air, a strange British tradition that only us Brits can do so well!
I suppose I could’ve printed out the image and used it in my journal page but I couldn’t be bothered to get my printer out of the cupboard and wrestle with the single sheet feeder which never works so instead I got my thinking cap on and made something inspired by PANCAKES!
I’ve always liked playing with words and puns and generally talking nonsense so I decided to make a page which included the word pancake, which you can see below along with a couple of close up photos and steps of the process.
I really enjoyed making this page, thanks to The Craft Garden peeps for the inspiration!
Step 1: I glued down some torn scrapbook pages onto my journal page:
Step 2: I painted the page with burgundy acrylic paint, I watered it down a little when painting over the scrapbook papers so that you could still make out the print.
Step 3: I added some more scrapbook papers
Step 4: I added more printed papers then added die cut hinges and a printed picture of a diva from a collage sheet.
Step 5: I stamped the quote: No One Would Dare Say She Was As Flat As A Pancake Ever Again! And affixed it to the page, I added some copper paint to the hinges and some burgundy ink to blend the colours together.
