If you want to join in with making an A to Z of Me Journal through the month of February click through to the Challenge blog.
Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Creativity.
As you can see the stamping showed through from yesterday's page so I covered the whole page with gesso.
I covered the whole page with green watercolour paint and sprinkled cooking salt onto the page. I put heaps in some places because I was hoping that this would create something I could make into flowers. However the salt and watercolour technique didn't work so well because of the gesso I think.
I let the salt dry and then brushed it off.
Because the technique didn't work as well as I know it can, I got some really good quality watercolour paper and wet the paper and then put the paint on and added the salt.
This is the result after the salt had dried and been removed.
I drew hearts on the back of the paper and cut them out. I inked round the hearts with distress ink. Before sticking the hearts on I used pan pastels through a couple of stencils. I stamped today's word. I might go back and colour the word in. I stuck down the quote and the verse and added my journaling.
I hope you enjoy being creative today.
