Strawberry Lemonade ~ SOC

My August copy of Craft Stamper arrived today and I was very taken by an article by Jaine Drake called 'Touchy Feely' and it provided me with the inspiration for my journal page for last week's Summer of Color icecream: Strawberry Lemonade.


And yes, I am a bit behind with this.

The technique included sticking a variety of items to the page and then coating the whole thing with gesso.


I then used some old colours of Dylusions spray inks and some Dylusions stamps.

Here's my finished page


Thanks for stopping by

  1. That looks fabulous and is a technique I must try.

    You're not behind either as today is the first day Strawberry Lemonade can be linked.

  5. Oooh this is a lovely page! I am inspired to have a go too - what gesso do you use? still not happy with my last experimentation with the Works gesso!

    1. I use the Claudine Hellmuth one. I know it seems more expensive but it works better
