Purple Birthday


A double page spread in my large Dylusions journal I made for the Dylusions Facebook Challenge for September.

I started by adding Lemon Zest and Crushed Grape Dylusion paint with a Distress blending tool. When dry, I added Lemon Zest, After Midnight and Calypso Teal thru a Dylusions  Small Bubbles stencil, turning the stencil over and pressing it down onto my page, drawing round some of the cirlcles with a gold pen.  Around the edge I used one of the stamps from the Dylusions Further Around The Edge set colouring with pens and paint.  I drew the cake and coloured with Fresh Lime Bubblegum Pink and Lemon Zest. I added circles using the mask and Lemon Zest on the bottom layer, hand drew using a black marker on the middle layer and stamped using Crushed Grape and a stamp from the Dylusions Basic Backgrounds.  The girl is from a set called These Boots Are Made… which I stamped onto copy paper coloured and cut out. The head I drew based on the head from the Ruby Rainbow. The stamp from this set wasn’t quite big enough hence why I drew it. The small words are from an old stamp set the CAKE is Dylusions Dy’s Alphabet, stamped onto copy paper coloured with paint. A bit of outlining around the words and two candles and all done . This did take some time as I had to keep waiting for paint to dry…. but that gave me time to do other crafty things 🙂 Heres another picture.. a close up of the face and words. I hope you like my pages and try using Dylusions products for yourself , they really are lovely to work with. dylusions-purple-birthday-1
