My Journal Monday–Week 15

I have been wanting to try adding some raised texture to my journal pages.  Over on Donna Downey’s Inspiration Wednesday posts, she is “always” adding some type of raised texture with gel medium or modeling paste, etc., and then highlighting it with some Raw Umber glaze to make the texture patterns pop.  Today is the day I post my efforts:

This spread was created in my smaller but still too-large-to-be-scanned-across-two-pages Canson Mixed Media journal so I photographed it rather than trying to do a combined page scan.  I used several stencils that I purchased from StencilGirl (Seth Apter–Past Present Future, Numbers, Unfinished; Rae Missigman–Pointing It Out; Carolyn Dube–Wall of Words).  I have a little space on the right side to add some personal journaling or an image or two if I want.  I still want the “UNFINISHED” word on the left side to stand out more but, like the title says, this is what is in My Journal Monday…  🙂

I am also posting this on:

    • I like that it is dark enough to provide a contrast but not so sharp of a contrast that it doesn’t transition well between the heavier and lighter areas. I’m a bit partial to browns of about any kind (love me some Van Dyke!) so I may have a bit of a biased opinion….LOL So glad you came by to comment, Nicole!

    • Thanks, Jill! I had a good time with this. I went home last night and worked on the “UNFINISHED” part a little more. I wanted it to be a little more prominent that it appears in this picture. I love Seth Apter’s stencils. They are so versatile fun in an organic way. Thanks for stopping by, Jill! 🙂

  1. I love this! You can barely see the stencils individually but the whole is so textural it’s wonderful! I just couldn’t get it together Monday although I did do some scribbling.
