I’ve finally finished my Letter Y for Yellow journal page for the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge Blog, the reason it took me so long to finish is because I couldn’t decide what to do! All I knew was that I wanted a yellow page because yellow is my favourite colour.
To start with I painted my journal page yellow and then glued on random scraps of paper:
Next I painted over it with more yellow acrylic paint:
It looked kinda bland and didn’t have enough layers so I started stamping various round shaped bowls onto the page with black gesso to give it some interest:
Then I forgot to take more pictures of what I did next!
I painted over the page again in yellow and liked the contrast between the light and dark areas on the background.
I added some circle punchies of book paper and glued them randomly over the background.
Then finally I stencilled on tiny dots using a different shade of yellow.
Next I decided I wanted yellow flowers so I painted some white paper flowers I had in 2 different shades of yellow and assembled the pieces together using a brad.
For the leaves I used a die cutter to cut them out (a bigz die) and stamped the leaves with a pattern stamp using green ink to colorise them.
I then glued the leaves and flowers onto the page along with the dictionary definition:
Here’s some close ups, you can still see the glue as I didn’t wait for it to dry!
Here’s my little helper who sat next to me as I finished this page:
