I was so thrilled to be able to create some projects for Tracy Evans with her latest release of stamps for AALL & Create. I am continuing this week with another of Tracy's beautiful new stamps,
Wild and Free (#238), to create a journal.
I die cut one of Eileen Hull's Notebook Journals for my base. The mountboard was given a coat of Gesso to give me a good base for watercolouring.
I coloured the flower with watercolour paint, let it dry and then spritzed the journal lightly and just dribbled paint in sections over the cover, letting them blend and dry naturally. I mixed in a little Iridescent medium into the paint to give a light shine.
This is a close up of the finished cover, you can see a little of the Iridescent shine. I coloured a second flower and decoupaged this up on the cover and added an elastic closure.
For the inside I created a small notebook and also a writing block.
For the cover of the writing block, I used a 'tissue' technique that Tracy showed in one of her Hochanda demos last weekend, I was quite pleased with the result! I painted it with watercolours.
You can find a list of stockists for the whole of the new stamp release HERE, including countries around the world. Whilst you can purchase direct AALL & Create advocate the use of your local stockist to purchase the stamps and stencils.
Finally, I am sharing a few of the samples that I made for Tracy's recent shows,
it was lovely to see them on TV!
Thanks so much for your visit, it is much appreciated and I hope to see you
Hugs, Anne xxx
