AASG5: Wendy Mason's "Word" Journal by Sharon!


I am sharing my page made in Wendy's "Word" themed journal for the round robin - lots of fun to create this page! And as you can see my word is "WISH"!!!
I started with "blobs" of paint in the colour scheme I wanted to work with that matched the digital papers I had printed out from "We Are 3" along with the digi stamp I had coloured up by "Sandra Caldwell"!!
I used my brayer to spread the paint around - being careful to still keep the separate colours and not end up with mud LOL!!! Next was some stencilling with white gesso to break up the colour a little and add some more dimension.

I printed out the digital papers from We Are 3 plus printed and coloured the Sandra Caldwell digi with pastel pencils, spray sealed and fussy cut. I "distressed" the printed paper edges with a distressing tool to add some more texture and interest.

I used the "spotty" paper from the paper set to stamp the "WISH" letters into with a pink archival ink and I then punched them out with a round punch - worked perfectly the way I wanted it to!
Next I adhered all the paper layers and also some pink ink sprayed muslin cloth to the journal pages.

 I'm really happy with how this turned out - love the colour, papers and main image! I punched the "extra" spots from the printed paper to use over the pages as well to fill some of the space and tie in with the lettering.

Such a cute and fun digi and I thought the row of books on the printed paper went well with the word "WISH" - "Dreams Come True" - if you wish for them!!

Hope Wendy is happy when she gets to see the pages in real life!! I love what everyone else has done! So great to get so many different styles and interpretations in the one journal - something that makes a great keepsake!!
