Moonshadows collection designed by Smyth
Moonshine word cardstock (side B)
Dragonfly dance cardstock
Collection cut-out sheet
Borderline A4 stencil
Moondust A5 stencil
Floral Tags metal die
Moonrock metal die
Bee Arty Shimmer dust – peacock, cobalt, passion
Mini archival ink pad – Garden Patina
Blending tool / foam tip
Water colour paints
Paint pen – royal blue
Cut the Moonshine word sheet (side B) down to A4 size.
Rub the Garden Patina (archival ink) through the Moondust A5 stencil using a domed blending tool diagonally across the page (top right to bottom left)
Add a few scoops of Bee Arty Shimmer dust
Apply the blue modelling paste through the ‘circles’ section of the Borderline A4 stencil with a palette knife in a loose cross shape. Allow to dry.
Run the Floral Tags metal die through a diecut machine onto a sheet of A4 White Cardstock – Bee Arty
Moonrock metal die through onto a piece of A4 White Cardstock – Bee Arty
Colour one of the backing tag pieces and two of the floral diecuts with passion/cobalt Bee Arty Shimmer dust
Colour the remaining pieces with a watery mix of peacock Bee Arty Shimmer dust
Moonrock metal die.
Please note ... in hindsight I should have coloured the Moonrock metal die with the cobalt/passion mix so that it stands out on the page ... you may wish to do this instead.
Glue the 3 floral pieces to the tag backings using opposite colours to create focal points.
Fussy cut a few images from the Collection cut-out sheet then colour in with water colour paints.
Cut some thin (7) strips from the leftover piece of the Moonshine word sheet (side B) with paper cutter.
Then loosely weave the strips randomly through the Moonrock metal die cut out to resemble a starburst shape.
Trim to suit the background.
With a royal blue paint pen edge along the strips of paper to visually lift them from the page a little.
Fussy cut several dragonflies from the Dragonfly dance cardstock and some wording from the Moonshine word cardstock. Arrange all the elements on the page then add mounting tape to the tags, goddess image and wording then adhere to the page.
Add detailing with the royal blue paint pen to all the elements (dragonflies, tags, wording) to finish.
I certainly hope you have found some inspiration with my journal page and have been enticed to order this collection for yourself.
Until next time … happy creating!!
Cheers from Linda Pearson
