Art By Marlene
My Journal die arrived last week and I have been cutting and watercolouring some stamped images to put onto the pages each evening after work.
The front cover is die cut with a stamped image and acetate behind it.
Until I got a bad headache, cough and sore throat , so took a few days off - rang 111 to be told that all is fine- no fever, no shortness of breath , not been out of the country for 36 yrs and no social life as such. Last night the gov said that a cough now means self isolation - so no going out or to work until Tuesday. Feeling a bit better but still sneezing and coughing. So .... I got to finishing this journal ( after I have sanitized the whole house - hubby has practically no immune system and daughter No 2 is diabetic)
I used distress inks, stencils stamps and watercolour for the backgrounds on water colour card.
I mixed in some of the gorgeous die cuts from two of the die cut pads.
Added some of my fav quotes.
The stamped images are all watercoloured and then fussy cut.
I used the flap for a pocket this time and ordered a multi pack of coloured elastic from Amazon for the closure.
Going to make another with some of the ALL & Create stamps next.
