For my project today I made another Fun Journal spread:
First I painted with white gesso, then stamped Brandi with black StazOn ink and colored her with a combo of Distress reinkers and InkTense Pencils. The tree was cut out from a piece of Webster’s Pages patterned paper and glued into the book in 2 pieces. I cut the Insta Love Polaroid die cut out of matching paper, and flipped the inside piece over and stamped the sentiment on the back. I rubbed a blue pastel over the edges of the book and glued down the Merry Christmas strip from the same paper as the tree. I added modeling paste with a polka dot stencil and a bit of bling from Prima. Finally, I painted some chipboard letters with gold paint and glued them onto 1 side. I just love how this spread came out and hope you like it too!
