Mini Journal Page




This is my first piece of crafting for this year !  Simply have had no time with other things getting in the way.  I am taking part in a weekly mini journal challenge being run over on UK Stampers Forum by Efemera.  We are to do one postcard sized page at 6 x 4 ins each week on a theme.  This weeks theme required:

1. A Photo
2. A handmade background
3. 3 things you want to achieve this year

I cut my card and allowed an extra 1/2 inch on the left so that I could punch holes with the Cinch.  I then used a selection of Dylusion paints in Yellow, Orange & Pink from Dyan Reaveley to colour the background. For the circles I used lids of various sizes dipped in the paint and applied direct.  Some paint was applied with a sponge through some sequin waste too.





I stamped with a frayed linen stamp with Brilliance moonlight white and sprayed with some Teal Glitz Spritz mica spray. White opaque pen and silver and gold pens were used to decorate as shown.






I then diecut a slide mount with the sizzix and used a pic of Avatar behind the mount aperture.  The mount was coloured with blue and orange Memento inks applied direct with the word 'Chameleon' written on.





The journalling was done on a cut up clocking-in card, coloured with orange Memento and written on with fine black rollerball pen.  I chose to 1 - Do More Craft, 2 - Finish what I start & 3 - Go places !  I have also written around the circles Goals, Aspirations & Targets.

Let's hope I can keep up with this challenge in line with my second goal.
