Just be awesome- you can do it!!

Hi everyone,

It’s Claire, back with another Design Team project for ScrapFX for May!

I’ve started another Kraft junk journal and couldn’t wait to use this butterfly, and find a different way to fix it into the journal.

There is also a video on YouTube of my last completed journal.. click on the image below to see it

So, here goes….

Junk Journal Kit KRAFT

I hadn’t sewn the butterfly into the journal when I made it, so I added some colour to it using a blending tool, I used Amsterdam acrylic in Permanent Red Violet light and Azo Medium yellow and DWM in turquoise.

These three colours blend so beautifully together…. and are, I think, one of my favourite combinations.

Next I used the Wise words collage paper and added a piece the same size as the page using some gel matt medium.

Once this was dry, I used the circle masks and some pale colours of paint and added some colours to the page. I used Amsterdam acrylic in Persian Rose, Blackberry and Orchid (DWM) and added layers of circle masking.

Next, I added some stamping using the Chickenwire, stamping using a Fuschia pink ink from Stazon Ink.

Then using my sewing machine I added the butterfly onto the right hand edge of the page, and finally stencilled some words at the bottom using the Dream Big stencil designed by me!
