So finally I get some spare time to craft, other than wedding invites that is, which as yet I can’t show on here. Just enough time to complete a page in my journal.
I used Dylusions paints in Fresh Lime, Dirty Martini, Cut Grass and Polished Jade to create the backgound with a ranger distress tool and a Dylusions stencil called Diamonds. The birds are a Dylusions set called Put a bird on it which I stamped onto thick paper, fussy cut out and coloured using Spectrum Noir pens and also a metalic pink pen.
I used a stencil called Fond of Foliage to draw the leaves and coloured and doodled with various pens. The words are from another Dylusion stamp set call The Right Words, I stamped onto thick paper and cut up sticking onto my page to form a triangle sort of shape with the birds. I used a black pen to scribble around the words. The inspiration for this page was the Dylusions Facebook Challenge,which this month was GREEN and TRIANGLES and FOLIAGE.
Another page in my journal for the Dylusions Facebook Challenge.
This one was “Use Pink Brown and Bunting” Turkish Delight got inside my head so thats how this page started. I used Bubblegum Pink and Melted Chocolate Dylusion paints, covering one page with each colour using a Ranger Distress tool. When dry i used I used Dylusions squares stencil and went over using the same colours. The words are Dylusions stamps which I coloured and used Glossy Accents on. I added hearts, again with a stencil that once dry I doodled on and around with white pink and black pens. Do you remember the adverts? thats were the face came from. A fun page …. thats what I love about my journal its just for fun.
The challenge over on the Dylusions Facebook Challenge page this month is Pink & Red, Hearts & Flowers. As I was chosen as a winner from April’s challenge, I get to be a guest designer this month. I shared 3 journal pages all very different, I hope you like them .

I wanted to do a black page as I love the look of lots of white pen on the black Dylusions paint. This will actually be a set of four pages, I used a Dylusion journal block to cut away the wavy edges and added some doodles to tie all the pages together. I’ll post pictures when I finish all of them but for now I have the first page done 🙂
First I painted the whole set of pages black using a Tim Holtz Distress Blender and Black Marble Dylusion paint. I left it overnight as it needs to be really dry to use a white pen on. I used a Dylusion stencil, Hearts Border, for the hearts and the daisy petals. The half circles are also from the same stencil. I cut the petals out from copy paper and layered them up to form my daisy. Then I doodled some lines and circles in the hearts and half circles and coloured some of the hearts with Bubblegum Pink, Cherry Pie and Postbox Red. I also cut out some of the hearts and stuck them on to create some layers….page two in my next post…..
