Latest Journal Pages

Hello blogging buddies,
Lovely to be here and post again. 
It seems further apart each time I'm here posting.
Wow, I just noticed I'm nearly at 100 posts! 
I'll have to celebrate some how (maybe a giveaway) what do you think?
Would you like a painting or something hand sewn by me? Please feel free to leave me a comment and consider each one.

I thought I'd show you my latest journal pages.
Not all have writing on them yet.
 Some textured background rolled on using Jo Sonja Kleister Medium and Texture Paste. While wet I pressed clear stamps into it. Then I gathered some leaves from my backyard, sponged them with paint and pressed onto my page.

This page is actually left over paint on a stencil from the next page.

I love this saying~it was sent to me during the week by dear friend. 

 This page is quite Mish Mash.  Reading back, that's exactly how I was feeling at the time.
 The background on this page was Gesso, then water colour pencils, washed out with a paint brush.
Then stencilled with paint over the top.  Oh, I'm terrible at taking step by step photo's.

This has textured rice paper for the background then some napkins over the top.  Both of these were applied using Artelier Impasto Gel.
I've then stamped and painted on some details.

This page was painted with Jade and Warm White then has coloured Texture Paste and lots of different stencils (some have a touch of sand), then dry brushed over the top using Jo Sonja Pearl White.

This was left over paint on stencils and a Minnie Mister used with water and Rich Gold around the stencil.
Just playing around.
Have a fabulously creative weekend,

I have got to start a journal.I have very much enjoyed looking at the pages from yours. Your color combinations in some of these entries are lovely. The colors in the last one would look great in my living room. Have a wonderful weekend.

These are beautful pages and I love that they're all done differently. I think my favorite is the one with the rice paper and napkins--wonderful layering technique. Thanks so much for sharing these!

Your journal pages are lovely. I am still looking for the journal I bought that just disappeared. You ask so I am going to tell you that if you have a give away I would like to see if be one of your sewn items, since I don't sew it would be a great win for me should I be so lucky.

Like you, I forget to take photos of work in progress. All your pages here look great but I especially like the very last one. Using the paint left on stencils is one of my favorite things to do. You got beautiful results with yours.
