Favourite Colour Journal Page




Here is another page for the weekly journal Challenge over on UK Stampers Forum.  This weeks gudelines were:

1.  What is your favourite colour and why?
2.  Use this as your main background for your page
3.  Add a doodled border to your page

Blue is certainly my favourite colour for many reasons too numerous to go into here.

I took a piece of plain card cut to size and then trimmed out a printed backing paper with a predominently blue theme to the same size as the base. I then stamped some text, top and bottom in broken china Distress Ink  I next took a piece of wordy paper and tore this colouring the torn edges with broken china Distress Ink also.  The paper was stuck in place and trimmed to fit.






I then took a selection of Hero Arts solid block stamps and selected loads of blue inks of all types including Versamagic, Brilliance & Impress and stamped them onto white card.  The shapes were trimmed out and stuck in place on the background.





All colour swatches were edged in Posca white pen and the edges of the page were decorated in doodled triangles and dots also in Posca light blue and gold.  The word 'BLUE' at the top is made with rub-ons and the rest is written with Posca black and dark blue.

  2. Nice blue page Sid - funny I was just saying to my friend Karen that blue is a colour I hardly ever use - I'm an earth tones girl - although I did use a small touch of blue in a project today - maybe I need to challenge myself

  8. I love the way everything came together on your blue page Sid. That torn paper edged with blue really pops off the page and looks so nice!
