Adding Dimension to a Journal Page

Hi there! Do you ever want to add more dimension to a journal page but you are not sure how? Well today I will show you how to add texture using Blank Page Muse Rubber Stamps and some texture paste.



For this project I used the following Blank Page Muse Rubber Stamps:


Other supplies:
  • Blank journal page
  • Texture Paste - Opaque Matte
  • Yellow acrylic paint
  • Colored ink sparays
  • Versafine Ink Pad - Onyx Black
  • Colored markers
  • Glitter gel pen
  • Water brush 
  • Blending tool, palette knife, paintbrush, paper towel, glue and scissors

Cover your page with texture paste.


Using your rubber stamp, press into texture paste in several areas. Wash your stamp off immediately.


Allow to dry thoroughly.



Paint with acrylic paint and allow to dry.



Spray with a contrasting color spray ink.



Look at that texture!




Use a paper towel to gently remove excess ink.



Set aside to dry.




Meanwhile, stamp the flowers on cardstock.




Color you flowers using water soluble markers.




Add color to the outer parts of the petal and then use a water brush to blend with the rest of the flower.


When your flowers are dry, use a glitter pen to add some sparkle.




Cut out the flowers and stick them in place.




Add your sentiment, quote etc. You can go around the edges with a little black ink to help them stand off the page.



Add shadows to the edges of your page using a blending tool and black ink pad.




Your journal page is complete!




Here are a few more photos.
