Adventure.....

Hi Again Blank Page Muse Stamps Fans!!
Hope you are all enjoying this spooky month of October and our Fall themed posts here at the blog!!
Today I've created a small page in one of my mixed media journals - you know Blank Page Muse Stamps are just perfect for any creation and I always love being able to use them in my journal pages!

This page is great for using up scraps - you know the bits & pieces you never want to throw away in case the day comes when you can create with them LOL Today is the Day!!!!!
Supplies:
  • Blank Page Muse Stamp: Adventure Stencil Style Word
  • Journal or Plain White Page
  • Scraps of Autumn/Fall coloured patterned paper, tissue paper + plain printed tissue paper &paper doiley
  • Watercolour Paint or thin acrylic paint
  • Black Embossing Powder & Embossing Ink Pad &White Card
  • General supplies: Gesso, Matt Medium, glue, scissors, paint brush, spatula, heat gun, embellishment of choice
Instructions:
Add a coat of Gesso to your page with a paint brush or spatula. Allow to dry. I like to use a spatula for a messy and more textured finish!

Gather some scraps of various sorts of paper: patterned card, patterned tissue paper, printed tissue paper, doiley etc. Any scraps with complimentary colours will work!


Using a Matt Medium arrange and adhere your strips to the page. Stick to one side and about a third of the way down. The idea is to leave white space for effect. Allow to dry.

Water down some paint and use a paint brush to spread it over the collaged papers and some of the white page background. Allow to dry once again!

Trim the excess pieces overhanging the page. LOL don't throw them out you might be able to sue them for a future creation!!!!!

Stamp the Bird stamp into white card with the embossing ink and black embossing powder and use your heat gun to emboss and then fussy cut.

Use embellishments of your choice - used here yellow cotton and scrap of muslin fabric.


Adhere the fabric and cotton along with the stamped bird on your page.

Stamp, emboss and cut out the Adventure word stamp. Place on the journal page and adhere with glue.

You have a finished page - I'm not normally one for white space but I do like this effect - hope you do too and have enjoyed the process!!
Hope you enjoy the last few days of the month!
I will be back next month with more stamping inspiration!
