Deb's Inspired by Pinterest Blog!
This is my first time on this blog with these awesome ladies and its a great feeling! When i got confirmation that I would be included in this Round of Journal Swap, I actually did a little happy dance (insert here: Awkward Jig) then had to get going. The theme for my Journal is "Inspired By Pinterest" (It should actually read DISTRACTED by Pinterest) . I must say that i love the fact that i can search for almost anything on this site and find information in the shape of videos, pictures, tutorials etc to help me on my way.
SO..here are a few Pics of my first Pages. the front page is self explanatory.
The middle page is a double spread that included distress paint,
and a resist stencilling technique, using Luminarte silks acrylic glaze paints and Twinkling H2o's.
I then doodled using Posca paint pens and wrote my Journal instructions for everyone on there.
I wanted to incorporate so many techniques/ideas that my brain almost exploded.. which inspired my last page of Brain Explosion. I used a misture of some of my favourite stamps, handwritten words and finished off with Thickers Alphabet stickers.
In my Posting Package, I have included A4 sized mixed media paper that I have asked people to fold in half. There is no pressure for people to fill both sides of these pages. If you feel like you have more 'heArt" to give, feel free to fill in any blank pages that someone else may have left. I will bind the book using the ribbon binding method that Louise posted links up for when i get it all back.
Happy Journalling in 2016 Everyone!
