Hello there! Today I am sharing my February project for 7 Dots Studio.
As I had already created a layout for my Tutorial I decided to do an AJ page.
I used the new collection Thoughts Keeper collection which you can see HERE.
To create this page I used gel medium to collage together various off-cut pieces
of paper & tags from the collection then used gesso, together with an old
credit card, over the top, to add more texture & mute down all the colours.
This always works well when you want to blend things together tastefully.
To make my title the focal point & draw the eye to the centre of the page
I sprayed some ochre mist, let it settle deep into the texture
(so don't use a heat gun or that will spread it around unless
you are extremely careful & gentle).
Lastly I adhered my hand-drawn & cut title & black inked butterflies
from 2Crafty Chipboard, then splattered diagonally across the page
with black ink, sealed everything with gel medium & sprinkled
on some Prima MICA while it was still wet!
I love the shine it gives, just like a bit of treasured fairy dust!!
It was a stress free bit of pure creative therapy!
