Do something that makes you happy!


Since it's February, I wanted to do something a little pink & whimsical. I love the diamond pattern on my scrap paper so it was the perfect backdrop for my art journal page!

Supplies:

Blank Page Muse: Every Single Day Do Something That Makes You Happy
Blank Page Muse:  Heart With Small Crackle Texture
Blank Page Muse:  Flowers & Leaves Border
White printer paper
White acrylic paint
Scrap of scrapbook paper
Olive oil
Wax paper
Brushes
Blank journal page
Watercolor crayons
Colored ink
Black Stabilo pencil
Rose Gold spray
Black archival ink
Matte gel
Adhesive

1.  On your printer paper, stamp your images with black ink & cut down to a smaller size - we're going to make vellum!


2.  Put your pieces on top of wax paper - the oil will soak through & you need something underneath to protect your work surface. Brush olive oil on your pieces, then wipe off with a paper towel front & back. The oil has now made the paper see-through (I laid them on top of my patterned paper so you can see the affect). 



3.  Use your watercolor crayons to add a little color to your vellum. 


4. Cover your page with a coat of acrylic paint. I like it a little thin & not fully covered. Then layout your pieces & adhere them to the page. 


5.  Add your finishing touches by spritzing/flicking your spray & outlining your vellum pieces with black pencil. 






I really love making my own vellum & using Blank Page Muse Stamps is a fun - and different - way to really personalize your projects!
