My Time To Craft Challenge

Hello my dear lovely crafty family. Welcome back to my blog. 

A very warm good afternoon to you all. Hope you all are doing good. How is the weather at your place??? Here at my place it's too cold and from 3-4 days its even raining. This cold weather has made me very crazy.

Today I'm sharing another art journal spread with you all which I made as my Design Team project for My Time To Craft Challenge blog and this fortnight our theme is Monochromatic Christmas. 

Here is my journal pages

I have used Dylusion small art journal book to create it. First I coloured the background with Distress oxide ink using blending foam, I didn't try to blend it very neatly because I wanted little texture with that so. Wanted more texture on it so took Craftangles Snowflake stencil and Linday's Stamp Gang Sidewalk Chalk spray  and started to spray on journal pages. Gave few splashes using same spray. Now I apply Prima clear gesso on it. I did a reverse job here because I wanted to Transfer Me sheet so. Next I took Dress My Craft Christmas theme Transfer me sheet and I fussy cut few design from it. Now the fun part begins, now I placed the image on the page so that my image goes down and the backing white paper comes upwards. Now take a sponge and wet it and remove extra water, now start dabbing the wet sponge on the image white backing, once it get wet, you will start seeing the image that means the white backing paper is ready to slide. Now start sliding the white backing paper slowly to reveal the image. Let it dry for 5 minutes. Once it dry seal it with any  sealer or varnish. Here I have used little birdie crafts matte varnish to seal it. Now I took Craftangles script stamp set and  Dark green Memento Dew drops ink and stamped it randomly on the pages. Again I took Craftangles Snowflake stencil and Distress oxide ink and did stencilling on the journal pages. I was happy with the outcome so I stopped there only. 
I hope you like it and please do leave your feedback so that I can improve myself more. 

Happy Crafting and Stay Safe

  1. Love the Victorian look of your journal page, it is gorgeous!

  2. This is a gorgeous holiday page. I love how you didn't use too many colors so the images are really standing out. Thanks so much for joining us at Art Journal Journey again. Much appreciated. Hugs-Erika

  3. How incredible. I love this lovely spread. I enjoyed reading about the transfer sheet, too. You had a lot better luck with yours than I had with mine the one time I used them. This turned out very Christmas-y and it's the perfect entry for Tracey's theme at Art Journal Journey, too.

    1. Thank you so much Bluebeard and Elizabeth.
      Hugs xx

  4. Monochrome certain gives a striking effect, your background colour really compliments the vintage style of images used on your page. Christmas it means so much to many. Thank you for joining me with my AJJ theme this month.. Tracey x
