Our journal pages inhabit an A4 spiral bound journal, it's big enough to fit the daily journal spots onto without too much of a squeeze. I decided to craft at the kitchen table as Wilbear had already extended it to its full length, in fact he was already there crafting happily away so I thought I'd be kind to the old codger and keep him company!
I surrounded myself with art products, and the journal of course.
I decided on spring colours of yellow and green, and for a change used the water colour crayons.
To start, I made a very un arty looking scribble in the middle of my page
I then wiped said scribble with a bearby wipe to diffuse and spread the colour over the entire page.
I scribbled merrily with the green crayon around the borders of the page
and blended the green into the yellow, again using the bearby wipe technique.
I added a little more yellow
then heat dried my paper.
Wilbear was happy building himself a model airplane
His eyesight is not what it used to be, but he had a handy eye stretching tool to help him.
Anyway, back to me... After drying my page, I selected some distress stain
and used it to ink up the bears new foam stamp which we bought at Stampbearama last weekend.
I then used all my power and might to cut some circles from nestabilities dies, using our veritable stash of 6 x 6 patterned papers.
Here is my spring creation.
While I had the stash out, I made a quick greetings card, this is just patterned paper cut to size and the new foam stamp on top.
I also made two ATCs using the water colour crayons and again the new stamp. The bears have decided that where possible, we will make a card or ATC whenever we are creating a larger project.
With love from the bears.
