Dreamweaver week: Art Journal

Hello :o)
Today's post is a hint of what is coming tomorrow ;)
"Back stage", Gay showed us her Dreamweaver technique for her Saturday post, and Michelle liked it so much that she used it on her Art Journal page.
So here's a hint of Gay's technique as well as a beautiful AJ page made with the Dylusion misters we received recently.

I like to use my journal as a bit of a technique book as well as an art journal and this is certainly a technique I'll be using again!
After seeing Gay's cards for this week (see tomorrow's post), I really wanted to try out her idea so tried it out on a journal page

The background was produced by spraying Dylusion inks directly to the page then squishing (a very technical term) another piece of card over it making the colours blend. I then stamped one of the lace motifs from the Katzelkraft set using a brown versafine ink pad.


Dreamweaver stencil: Heart lock and key
Dreamweaver embossing paste: Crackle

Katzelkraft unmounted rubber stamps - Lace
Versafine ink pad - Vintage sepia
Rub n Buff: Autumn gold
Distress Ink pad: Black soot

  2. A beautiful background effect.

  3. Just one question did you spray first & then use the embossing paste or vice versa?

  4. Lovely colours, lots of texture what's not to like !

  5. Thanks for your comments everyone, just to reply to your question, I created the background first then applied the crackle paste. The paste takes up the colour of the background and looks great when the rub and buff is applied
