Journal heART 15

Hi All
I've joined in with Journal heART 15 group on Facebook. Although I have done a couple of pages in my journal in the past they still look like cards so I am hoping to branch out a bit!

Week 1
"create a little page about the no 1/the first time/ the start/ new challenge"

So for my offering I chose the start,
(the first page of my journal that has been knocking about for  a couple of years, too scared to spoil it!)

I inked the page with Distress Inks and Stains.  I then highlighted the raised areas with ink and gold wax and used stamps from Chocolate Baroque Woodland Dreams.


Week 2
" Birds with clipped wings can still Sing..."

and Bleeding Tissue Technique

This was a new technique to me. 
I sprayed 1 layer of kitchen roll with Adirondack sprays and left to dry. I then die cut  the paper with the Tattered Florals die. I sprayed my journal page with water and placed my die cuts onto the wet page and waited for the colour to transfer. Stamped the Birdcage from Chocolate Baroque Curly Birds, the sentiment was from Pretty Birdcage. 
Other stamps are from a free magazine set.

Looking forward to next weeks prompt!
