I opted for a journal page, something I do not do much of but I thoroughly enjoyed the process which I have detailed below.
I added Texture Paste over Tim Holtz Nordic Stencil across the central area of the pages.
I added Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink to a piece of acetate and then spritzed with water.
I pressed the acetate, inked side down onto the pages and smooshed the ink across the background.
I spritzed the ink with water and allowed it to run and puddle on the page.
I then dried my ink with a heat tool.
I repeated the same process with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink onto acetate.
Smooshed the ink across the page with my fingers.
Spritzed the ink further and then dried with a heat tool.
I used Tim Holtz Heartfelt Sizzix Die but used the apertures, coloured with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink, blending the ink with an ink blending tool and then spritzed the ink with water. Dry the ink with a heat tool.
Three die cut hearts were coloured with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink. I tore one heart and stapled together with Tim's Tiny Attacher.
I love adding items in threes, I love the composition it gives. I began by adding three strips of Tim Holtz Chatter Design Tape and also included a piece of kitchen towel that was used for my mop ups.
I added three strips of card, coloured with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink and I also included a Tim Holtz Transparent Tile. March 23 has also been added as this was the date my mum passed away only a week ago, as I write this post.
I also added a painty circle around my focal pieces to act as a spotlight to the design.
I added more strips of tape, in blocks of three and added my hearts to the page.
I added a sentiment 'a corner of your heart' from Tim's Idea-ology which seemed perfect for this page.
I love leaving some white space, so I did not cover every area of the pages. I also added painted circles to my pages, again in clusters of three.
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the step by steps.
