Hopes and DREAMS! by Linda Pearson

Hopes and DREAMS!  we all have them... 

Today I have used some of my favourite stamps and stencils from the Bee Arty range to create a journal page.  As always these journal pages can be adapted to become a scrapbook layout if preferred.

Gesso – Bee Arty heavy primer 250ml
Mica powder – Denim, Eggplant and Forest
Black archival ink
Corrugated kraft card
Tissue paper
Off cut scrapbook paper
Word or sentiment (photo image for scrapbook layout)

Apply 2 coats of white Gesso to an A4 journal page.  Dry off.

In the jar (2 jars) add some matt medium enough to cover the whole page, add several scoops Mica powder, eggplant and denim to make a mix.  Brush over the whole page with the Eggplant mix then while still wet use a wet wipe rubbed through the City Nights A6 stencil, dry off.
Using the Denim Mica powder mix randomly brush the blue mix over areas of the page, then while still wet, use a wet wipe rubbed through the Distance A5 stencil.  Dry off.

Mix more of the Egg Plant Mica powder apply through the boxed in stencil randomly around the edges of the page, dry off.

Add random track marks using the  Making tracks clear stamp set with the black archival ink.  Also add some tracks around the border of the page.

Roughly tear a section of Kraft corrugated card.  Roughly paint over some of the left over Eggplant matt medium mix to add colour the card.  In a mist bottle add some Forest Mica powder with water to make a shimmer mist spray, spray over the card.  Dry off.

To create the focal point I used a variety of bits from my stash, adhere together;
·       muslin (coloured in Forest shimmer spray),
·       fussy cut flowers from embrace change cut out sheet,
·       black and white scrapbook paper
·       Title from the electric dreams cover page
·       Craft string
·       Tissue Paper stamped with the numbers stamp from the  Making tracks clear stamp set in black archival ink
·       Add black splatters over the focal piece
·       Tie some craft string around the focal piece.


On a piece of White Cardstock 350gsm apply a mix of Denim and matt medium through the Untangirl A5 stencil.  Allow to dry.


Spray some Forest and Eggplant shimmer mist sprays over the stencilled girl.

Cover some White Cardstock 350gsm with the Distance A5 stencil in black archival ink. Cut a backing shape using the stencilled girl as a guide. Adhere the two pieces together.
Apply more Eggplant  and matt medium mix through the Distance A5 stencil  then add some black scribbles around some of the numbers/letters as well as some of the squares around the page.

Thank you for checking out my journal page and hope you are inspired to create your own interpretation.

Cheers from Linda ...
