AAJS6: Sharon's Page in Deb's "The Magic of Alice" Journal
Sharing my page/s in Deb's "Alice" themed journal - and who doesn't love to create "Alice" themed???
I decorated the double page spread and the "fold" over half page - LOL just couldn't stop adding Alice pics - so much fun!
I started by adding Gesso to the double page and the folded half as a base. once that was dry I drew a line to divide the page where I wanted to adhere the pics and spritzed ink sprays and water and allowed the drops to run down the page. Once I had the bottom half done and dried I turned the page upside down and worked to add drips in the other direction. does that make sense??? Hopefully the pics show what I am talking about!!
I printed out my digi stamps which are by Vera Lane Studio - I design for VLS so love to work with the quirky and fun characters and these "Alice" themed digis were absolutely perfect!!!
I printed them on "linen" cardstock which is not the correct blending card for my Copic markers but I love the effect and quality of the linen card and still like the way the colouring turned out!
I also printed out wording, also by Vera Lane Studio
and cut out the wording and edged with matching coloured Copics that I used to colour the pics!
I fussy cut the characters and adhered them to the pages along with some "doodling" to cover the pencil line I had added as a guide for the ink drips and picture placement.
So love how the pages turned out!
Can't wait to work in the next journal coming my way!
