Hi there! We have Jane here on the blog today with a fabulous scrapbook page for her memory journal featuring the gorgeous large flower stamps from our WHERE FLOWERS BLOOM set, SON + DAUGHTER definition stamps, and our fantastic INK SWIRLS stencil…
Hello it’s time to share my latest Visible Image design team project. Today I am sharing a “Moment” I have made for one of my physical journals “Jane’s Journal”. These are art journals which document many of my life events and I haven’t made one for a long time. In April I celebrated my 60th birthday. I had thought it would be very low key with just my Hb and I going to RHS Wisley Gardens in Surrey. It was at the very beginning of life and places opening up a little more after the 2nd Lockdown. Little did I know when we arrived at Wisley that not only would my daughter (who I had not seen for over 5 months) appear bearing birthday cupcakes but my son too, and they had been hatching this plan for months. It was just the best and most carefully orchestrated surprise and I was blown away (and yes I did shed a few tears of sheer joy!)
It really was the best of times and I needed to document it in my art forever.
I decided to choose this photo for my Moment which was taken when I first saw my children and we went inside the grounds, my 3 most important people.
Here’s what I got up to.
I added a light spray of distress ink to a sheet of water colour card
I then added some stenciling using the fab Ink Swirls stencil and kitsch flamingo and worn lipstick distress oxide inks.
I added it fairly randomly all over the page.
I made a frame for my photo using alcohol inks and Yupo.
I die cut a rectangle from the Yupo and stuck my photo underneath.
I stamped the gorgeous memories sentiment from the Express Yourself set under where the photo would be.
Then I added some more stamping to the edges of my page and behind the frame using the Where Flowers Bloom set.
I purposely stamped using Versafine Clair ink so that the stencil showed through the stamping. If you don’t like this effect you would need to use Archival or another oil based ink which is more opaque. Or you could use a pure dye based ink like regular distress for the stenciling.
I also stamped and cut out a couple of the smaller flowers from Where Flowers Bloom using a scrap of card coloured using Brushos.
Then it was time to assemble my page.
with a couple of close ups;
We have not been together with our children like this on a day out since they young and still lived at home. It really was a very special day and it lives on in Jane’s Journal.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Bye for now,
This is such a fabulous scrapbook page Jane, gorgeous colours and background and perfect stamps for the setting of your very special family get together too. Thank you Jane ♡
