Something fishy...

Hello everyone Debs here with another journal page for you today. I'm so happy to be back in my journal, I forgot how much I love playing in it, smile!

I wanted to create an old journal page as a memoir, as if it were a snap shot of a day out out at the beach.

I started on a couple of old pages which were used to mop up and try things out. I love to play this way as I think 
it all adds to the depth and texture.

I smooched the paint over the page with my fingers. I  painted the elements on my page with  a dye based ink.

Next I stamped the people on my page randomly 

I then surrounded them with the net stamp. 

I stamped directly onto the page as well as onto plain card which I then cut out and placed around the page.

I also added the fish as my day out included fishing as well as a nice fish supper!

Here are some more close ups

The stamps I used are Retro Beach and Something Fishy
The Acrylic is Dina Wakley's mini bottles from Ranger
And the dye based ink is From Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers.

A last look at my page.

Take care

  2. WOW! I have not worked in my art journal for ages, but this looks really fun - smearing paint out with your fingers is my fave teachnique (a girl needs her messy!). Lovely page, Debs - thank you so much!! ♥ ♥ ♥

  3. Stunning page Debs! I love the many colours in contrast to the black stamping!!!

  4. Great layered stamping over that fabulous painty background.
