More details on my blog Kath's Blog-Everyday Life Of A Crafter
The Dylusions Creative Journal is 11.8" x 9" slightly larger than the Small Creative Journal I've been used to so I masked off the edges of the page with torn strips of copy paper and spritzed with Salvaged Patina Distress Spray Stain and Distress Oxide Spray, dried, spritzed lightly with water to activate the oxide and dried. I inked the flower spray from Simon Says Spring Bouquets with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink, sprayed lightly with water and stamped randomly on the background by holding the stamp in my hands to create imperfect impressions. I tapped Salvaged Patina and Scattered Straw Distress Oxide ink pads over the debossed side of the Simon Says Magnolia Branches Embossing Folder, spritzed lightly with water, added a panel of Distress Watercolor card and ran through my Big Shot using the appropriate sandwich. I tore the panel diagonally at the bottom, inked around the edge with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool and fixed to the journal page using Distress Collage Medium. I applied Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Texture Paste through the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Latticework Layering Stencil and set aside to dry and that magic crackle to appear.
I distressed the edge of the Idea-ology Found Relatives photo, inked with Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool and added small strips of Entomology Collage Paper.
I smooshed Speckled Egg, Salvaged Patina, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey and Frayed Burlap Distress inks on to my Glass Media Mat, spritzed with water and used to add colour to scraps of Distress Watercolor card which I die-cut using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Brushstroke Flowers 1 Thinlits and fixed in place with Distress Collage Medium.
I added a twine bow, Idea-ology Mini Flair Embellishment, an Adornments Heart, painted with Ground Espresso Distress Paint and highlighted with Picket Fence Distress Crayon and Sentiments Label Stickers.
I die-cut Simon Says Dandelion from Distress Watercolor card, coloured the centres with Scattered Straw Distress Oxide ink using a Ranger Detailer Blending Tool, snipped off the stems and fixed in place using Distress Collage Medium.
I smooshed the Ground Espresso Distress Oxide ink pad on to my Glass Media Mat, spritzed with water and used to add splatters to the page.
