Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt. The inspiration for today is the Poem 'Journey of the Magi' by T S Eliot and the technique challenge is to make your own crown stamp.
This is today's page in my altered book.
I put a piece of masking tape onto the page and then covered the whole page with gesso. I sprayed blue Dylusions ink on the page and then the White Linen through an Artists Cellar map stencil as I wanted the page to look cold. I used the snowflake stencil and sprayed more White Linen.
I turned the stencil over to dab off all the ink.
There wasn't much colour on the page to react with the white so the snowflakes are quite subtle.
I sprayed the blue ink through the stencil onto the tag but I sprayed too much and it ran.
I made a stamp from some thin foam which I stuck to a piece of card.
I stamped the crowns, cut up the verse and the quote and stuck them on. To tone down the tag I sprayed it with the White Linen and then did my journaling on the back. I stuck a crown embellishment onto the page with foam squares so that I could tuck the tag behind it.
Thanks for stopping by.
