Today I’m sharing a page that I created in my Vicki Boutin Junque Journal! As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m going to be using this junque journal as a mini album to document all of the fun things that we did with our kids over the summer. This is the first page that I’ve created for the album, and I decided to make this a title page of sorts. And of course I wanted to have a play with my Vicki Boutin mixed media goodies…
Here’s the page that I created…
To create this background, I started off by applying gesso through a stencil. I didn’t apply it to the entire background, just to three different sections, leaving some areas with no stencilling. Next I scribbled three different colours of art crayons (all warm colours) onto a sheet of acetate, and used one of the water brushes to create some pretty watercolours. I then applied the art crayons over the top of the stencilled background by ‘kissing’ the sheet of acetate to the page. The areas where I had applied the gesso resisted the art crayons, which gave some nice variance in the depth of the colours. Once that was dry, I came back in with the pink art crayon, and I applied it over the top using the stencil brush. I love how this background turned out!
I added a title to the page using a combination of the ‘All the Good Things’ Chipboard Thickers and the numbers from the Watercolor Sticker pack. I kept the embellishing fairly simple, using two of the gorgeous die cut butterflies from the collection. I added some craft foam underneath the wings of the butterflies to give them some extra dimension.
Up in the top right hand corner of the page, I added a little chipboard banner from the Finishing Embellishments pack.
I finished the page off with a few black enamel dots, and then it was ready to pop into my Junque Journal!
Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope that you’ve been inspired to play in your Junque Journal too! You can check out my process video for this page over on my YouTube channel…
