Finding You # 3



















Way behind...but getting there :-)
Decided to scan the pages before the journaling was added so you can all enjoy the background I made, and not looking at blurry text.

Inspired by the picture I chose to use for this weeks assignment, I decided to make my own background, not using any patterned papers this week.

First I coloured the background with watercolour paint. Then I added accents / changed the colours a bit by dabbing some Colorbox Cat's Eye ink on it.
Next I stamped on "the water" and "the beach" with Versamark ink and added some Perfect Pearls from Ranger to it to get this cool shiny metal effect.
I used my new Autumn Leaves Big Swirl stamps with silver colour Colorbox ink for the finishing touch.

The lettering on the left page are Autumn Leaves stamps also, and the white outlining of the letters was done with a white UNI POSCA pen.
These pens are a must have; if you wanna know more, then click on the link to see what they can do and to see the available colours
