I collect various quotes and ideas for journalling and hope to be able to share them with you all on a (fairly) regularly basis…so have decided to create these Weekend WOW (Words of Wisdom) posts.
Now, don’t expect a post every weekend….maybe I will, maybe I won’t…. we’ll see how it goes and hope for the best!! Like many of you, I have various commitments – home, work, DT obligations, etc but I resolved this year to make time to create just for myself more, and this seems an appropriate way to do it.
This journal spread features a fabulous image ‘Bekkah Bloom’ by Lisa Bloobel of Bloobel Stamps. She was kind enough to offer this as a freebie to her Facebook Group members, so I am returning the favour by using her in my Moleskine journal and sharing her with the world. Please go and take a look at Lisa’s Etsy shop – she has a wonderfully kooky and quirky collection of digistamps!
My background was created using Inktense Blocks – loving the yummy colours and blendability of these. I then randomly stamped some Visible Image circle stamps and some stars and arrows (magazine freebies!) I added some highlights with a white gel pen.
I found some washi tape in my stash and tore pieces of it to add around the edges of the page.
The quote is stamped with a mini alphabet stamp – a bit time consuming but I love the font and unevenness of it. I then chopped the words up and edged with a black pen.
Bekkah is coloured with a mixture of Copics, Promarkers and Polychromos pencils. I’m rubbish at cutting out, so always leave a white border as it disguises any wobbles.
Anyway, that’s it for today….I hope you like my pages and maybe I have inspired you to create something ‘just for you’ too.
