Art Journal June 2014

Finally managed to complete June's journal page.
 
June just seems to have snuck up on me and I was a little unprepared this month, anyhow, I  got stuck in and was very happy with the finished result. I do have one problem at the moment  though, that is I like my pages so much before the journal tabs go on and
 it breaks my heart to cover up all the detail as I want to see it all. Hence all the photo's this month.

 
To begin with I stuck tissue tape randomly across the pages, followed by a coat of matt sealant. On top of this I brayered  Antartic and Dusty Teal Paperartsy paints.

 
Then using JOFY and LB masks, Space Cadet was stencilled through as the base layer, followed by a coat of Chalk on the flowers and buds  leaving the stems blue, the mask was adjusted slightly to give the  impression of a shadow and also to create a neutral colour to put the colours of  Haystack ,Lilac and Amethist on.
 
This is June 2014

 
Circles were die cut from co-ordinating spotty paper to create an area to journal on, and a title added.
 
This was June 2013
 
 
I had forgotten how bright this one was, especially for me.
 
That's all for today folks.
