Hello friends! Lorilei here today, sharing a little journal I made after making a big mess (a big fun mess) with the new Vicki Boutin Pigment Powders and Molding Paste! I added some gesso and my favourite gold glaze!
I gathered random bits of papers – Kraft paper, printer paper, doilies, tags, envelopes, brown bag and chose two greeting cards from the Wildflower and Honey collection as well. I spread the papers out on my desk and began adding molding paste that I coloured with the two pink pigment powders. I used a palette knife to randomly scrape paint onto the papers and asst paper items.
As I switch products, I dry the stack of papers in between, by ruffling them around and lifting and moving them. I added gesso with a palette knife as well as the gold glaze. Once I had all the paint and splatters I wanted on the pages, I added bits of masking tape and drywall tape for texture. I also used the bee stamp from the Wildflower & Honey stamp set to make customized tissue paper! I love having it to add to the finished pages using the Vicki Boutin Gel Medium to adhere to it.
I love the feel of all the different types of media on the pages! The pink pigment powder is such a lovely colour!
Once my pages were all dry, I sorted them into stacks and then folded them into journal signatures. I made myself a journal cover from cardboard and a cloth napkin I had laying under my stack of papers to catch the paint. I added elastics to the spine and inserted my signatures in a traveller’s notebook style. I can still pull a page out to stitch on it when I fill the journal up.
I have made a video of the process; it shows it much better!!
Thanks so much for joining me today and having a look at my project! I do find great joy in just making a happy mess!
