Feet to Fly – KarenJ

by Karen Jarman

Hi Scrap FX Fan,

KarenJ with you today with a journal page using the gorgeous Patchwork Birds and lots of other goodies!

Frond Stamp – this stamp is such a staple in my stash, it is great for adding interest as part of layering or it can take a starring role in any layout.

Flower Scene Collage Paper – I love being able to create layers on the page and collage paper is perfect!

Paradise Collage – a gorgeous layering piece!

 Cross and Strokes Stamp  and In and Out Circles Stamp– awesome mark making stamps!

Zinnia Stamp – another stamp for layering!

Frida Kahlo Quotes – I love the phrase I chose for this one!

The steps to create –

1 Add white gesso to the page, I did this randomly around the page and didn’t cover the whole page

2 – Rip and tear the Paradise Collage and focused on the birds and butterfly components and glued these to the page

3 – Stamped with the Frond Stamp around the page and focussed on the bottom right and top left of the page

4 – Finger painting time! I added lost of layers of paint in blue, bright yellow and maroon around the page

5 – Ripped the Flower Scene Collage paper and added half of one of the circles at the top and bottom of the page

6-  Back to finger painting, this time I used metallic silver paint and it gave the impression of muting the page which is exactly what I was going for.

7- Added splatters all over the page

8 – Fussy cut the bird from the Patchwork Birds sheet and the quote from the Frida Kahlo sheet. I inked the edges of the quotes as well to give a little contrast and lift of the page

9 – Final flourish of more splatters

I love all the layers in this!

The perfect quote to finish! I love how this turned out!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful creative week!
