Karen here with you again today, and it seems as though I’m still having a few technical issues with youtube, so I don’t have a video to share with you today. I still have a wonderfully “distressed” journal page to share with you though.
This one is a little different for me.. it has colour. yes you read right, I’ve used some very not vintage colours! I love how it has turned out, and still think it looks very me!
I started by picking a few different colours of Distress Paint and one colour Dylsuions Ink spray and put down my first layer. Lots of inky painty fingers with this one.. I just swiped , sprayed and rubbed things here and there until I was happy!
Next I pulled out some Tim Holtz layering stencils and added in another layer, using a couple of different Distress paint colours.
Another layer, with some stamped images using one of my original colours of paint that I used in my very first paint layer. I also added in some random swipes of black distress paint at this stage as well as a few tiny pieces of torn Tim Holtz tissue tape and left my background to dry.
While I was waiting patiently for my paint to dry, I fussy cut around a Tim Holtz Found Relative and did a little reading of some old book pages, cutting out a few words that I might like to use on my page.
Using some gel medium I stuck my Found relative in place along with my chosen words, and added some doodling and a smudged shadow using a distress marker around my elements.
Lastly I added in a few Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs and I was done..
It’s very different for me, as I usually run a mile when someone mentions colour, But I love how its turned out, why not put yourself a little out of your comfort zone and try a colour combination you would normally shy away from with your next journal page.. you never know, you may just find you really love it!
