March 2017 - Adding Gesso Highlights


  • First of all we recapped how to create the ink background.  Then we applied water by flicking and through a stencil to lift some of the ink.
  • Then it was a light spray of the ink, to get some darker colour spots on the background.
  • Then using the coordinating dark dylusion paint, stamped some texture onto the main page.
  • Then we applied highlights of white gesso, using wallpaper technique (Seth Apter has a demo online about this)
  • Then stamped the word Fashion (Inkydoodles stitched tile alphabet) and the border (Dylusion Stamp)..
  • Then stamped the lady image (Dylusion stamps) on the main page and on a mop up page.  Overstamped the dress and hat on the mop-up page with script and cut them out.
  • Using the Groovi system (Clarity Stamp), created two heads with hats on parchment and coloured them in and cut them out.
  • Stuck everything on the main page.
  • Lifted the ink out of the fashion tiles so they could be read and put dark grey line around two sides of the tiles.
  • Stamped the words (Dimension Stamps).
  • Added the peel-off stars.



February 2017 - Over the Edge Dies

I will take photos of the cards when I get them back from the people who borrowed them to finish their cards at home.

January 2017 - Inks and Ghosting

This month we played around with Dylusion ink sprays and various types of paper (Dylusion Journal, Stamping Card, Watercolour card etc). Then we flicked water over these backgrounds to lift the ink and create a ghost.

Later on, we created the journey page below, using Visible Image Stamps and Dylusion Border stamps.
