Linda here to share an Altered workbook with Paint Stamps Stencils and Glimmer Mists. I was digging around in my plethora of papers and I found these old Toastmaster Work books that were well over 10 years old. I am Not a HOARDER. lol I was about to throw these out when I decided, I can give these a new life.
Using an old gift card or one of those plastic credit cards that come in the mail that are not real, I spread the paint on the pages. Once I had the pages covered with paint I then used a brayer and stencils with white acrylic paint or white gesso to add some texture.
When the paint had dried I then used the Wave Background stamp using the Locomotive Surface ink in a random manner. By the way if you don't have a large block, just use your hands for this technique. I liked the uneven print that was created because I wasn't being perfect and didn't use a block.
If you follow me at all, then you know that I love to add Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to projects. I ended up using Dazzling Diamonds and a pink that I had in my stash. The shimmer on the papers is so pretty and very hard to capture in photos.
I did create a video of the whole process of making this Altered workbook with Paint Stamps Stencils and Glimmer Mists
Now that I've laid a beautiful foundation this Altered workbook with Paint Stamps Stencils and Glimmer Mists is ready to use as a journal. I may end up adding items to the pages like a junk journal or I may just journal directly on the pages. I've not decided yet.
Hopefully this inspired you to take a look at that pile of junk mail or old workbooks and use these in a new way.
Thank you for stopping by the blog today. Feel free to follow me on Facebook to see other projects I create.
