I created this journal page for the Simon Says Stamp And Show Challenge which this week is to use some Shabby Chic elements in our artwork. I was a little flummoxed at first because I’m definitely not a girly girl at all but I do love a challenge so I didn’t let it deter me from making a page.
I decided to use one of my mop up page backgrounds in my journal which I had previously used to wipe off the excess black gesso from my paintbrush, first of all I sprayed it with turquoise dylusions spray ink to add a splash of colour:
Next I cut a paper lace doiley in two and then glued it onto the page as shown:
I next added a stencilled girl image which I had previously prepared on one of my scrap mop up pages using black gesso, the stencil mask image is taken from the new Dina Wakley’s Crafters Workshop stencils. Finally I added the word GAL to finish it off.
