Joan's page in Lisa's "Enchanted" Journal
I started by using a thick gesso on both pages, as I wanted to use dylusions dyes I was worried they would seep through the previous page. Even with that, and working with plastic sheets between the previous and next pages, because of the holes in binding it still leaked a little, so I ended up gluing two pages together.
I used spray dyes, dylusions paints, watercolours, gellatos, twinkles and collage on page.
The fairy and the Cheshire cat were coloured in using markers. I stamped some flowers and used texture paste with stencil to create some foliage. The title is stuck on and outlined in white and black pen. The Cheshire cat is designed to stand out away from page if book is standing up and open.
On the left page I made a pocket with the previous page and put some Alice in Wonderland related journalling cards in there, I used one to sign in, as there is no designated place in journal to do so. I added a little decorated paper clip to close the pocket.
