I Believe.....

Today I have a journal page to share with you, and for those of you that know me, it will be no surprise that it includes fairies.  I wanted to see how the pastes would work with my brayer and I LOVE the outcome.
First I stamped some lines on my page in Black archival ink.
Then I scooped out a small amount of the paste in the colour 'Singin the Blues' onto my non stick craft mat and ran my brayer over the paste making sure to lift my brayer and coat it evenly in the paste.
I rolled the brayer randomly over my stamped area. 
Then I did the whole process again, this time using 'Deep Water' paste.

The pastes are so beautifully vibrant but sometimes you might want to mute them down as I did in this piece.  This was super easy and produced some lovely pastel tones.  I added a little gesso to my nonstick craft mat, just as I had done with the pastes, then rolled the gesso over the page with my brayer.

I added a little of the 'Royalty' paste, again in the same manner with my brayer to give a bit of a purple pop to my page.  Then, using the 'Flower Trail' stencil and the 'Snow White' paste I added some flowers to the page.

Once they were dry I sprayed the 'Deep Water' shimmer spray all over the flowers and let it dry again.  

Next I took the 'Dusty Charcoal' paste and 3 different sized round lids.  I scooped a little of the paste into the lid of the 'dusty charcoal' tub and then used my other lids like stamps, dipping them into the paste and stamping them onto the page like bubbles.
I used  my 'Neocolor' crayons to add some highlights to the bubbles, then I used the 'Singin the Blues' paste through the 'Stardust' stencil.
Finally I took the 'Fairy Dreamcatcher' and 'Fantasy Mushroom' chipboard embellishments and painted them with 'Black Soot' Distress paint and adhered them to my page.  I typed up the quote on the computer and printed it out, I love this quote and have it on a stamp, but I wanted it to be bigger for the page.
