Silhouettes number two

Hey everyone how’s your month going so far? I’m settling into life without the stress of studying and enjoying my freedom lol. I’ve lots of plans for this year so watch this space. In the next couple of weeks I’m launching my own stationary set, which has many different uses, but more of that later. in addition I will be showing a series on planners both physical and digital, so if you like to plan and art journal this might be of interest.

Right onto my make for my second inspiration piece for the current challenge theme on the Country View Craft’s blog. Don’t forget you can win a £20 voucher to spend in store, but don’t forget you must follow the guides to actually be entered into the draw. This month the theme is silhouettes which according to the Cambridge Dictionary is:

silhouette - noun - a dark shape seen against a light surface.

And here is my project

I created myself a 6”x6” journal that I can add to when I want and this is the first page. So to start I created my background using Distress ink from Ranger and blended the colours together.

TOP TIP - when blending inks with different colours go over the join area with the lighter colour, as this allows the two colours to blend seamlessly.

Next I die cut some florals from Sizzix in black card stock, to create the silhouette effect.

I auditioned them around the page to see where they looked best before sticking them in place using dries clear glue.

Because the florals were much taller than my actual page I arranged them to get the best look and once dry cut of the areas which over hung the page.

Now to finish off, you know I love my glimmer plate from spellbinders and couldn’t resist using it on my page. First I glimmered and die cut my butterfly using black foil on black card stock

And then die cut my sentiment also in black card to finish off, and there you go, a simple journal page is easy to create. Let’s look again at the finished piece.

Thank you for your visit

take care and pop back soon
