Hi everyone, today I would like to share with you all my last JMA Guest Project and today I’m creating this art journal spread. Let’s get started!
My base on the left hand side is part of the JMA-WAC-SCRAP74 large design paper and on the right hand page I used a page from the actual journal and adhered some scraps of the same scrap paper using gel medium and let that dry.
Next I looked for a fun quote online and printed that out, transfered the text onto the right hand page by tracing and I filled in the text using a black Faber Castell PITT Artist Pen (S).
For the left hand side I started with stamping the circle shape from the JMA-ES-STAMP67 onto vellum using black ink and heat embossing the circle shape using clear embossing powder. Next I cut out the circle shape using my scissors. This I did three times.
I also stamped some of the flower images from the STAMPJMA05 and JMA-ES-STAMP138 stamp set onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface Paper using a juicy black ink and heat embossing the lines using a clear embossing powder (best results after using an anti-static powder tool on the paper before stamping the images) and I also fussy cut the images.
Lastly I die cut some reinforcers for the holes of the journal pages from green card stock using the Crealies CLJP650 Binder Reinforcements Shapes die set.
Now I can colour the flower images using my JMA Light Markers in combination with a water brush. I used the following colours: Pale Cream, Golden Yellow, Peony Deep, Magenta Deep, Old Red and Pine Forest. After the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen.
I stamped some additional details onto the paper using images from the same JMA-ES-STAMP67 stamp set as mentioned before. I adhered the vellum and flower images onto the left hand side using one millimetre thick foam tape and tape runner and to finish the project I adhered the hole reinforcements and edged the pages using Memento “Espresso Truffle” and “Peanut Brittle” ink in combination with a foam applicator tool.
And that is it for my last JMA Guest Project, I loved working with these fabulous collections the past year and Jenine is such a nice person, it was a pleasure to work with her!
I wish you a creative day!
