My Time To Craft Challenge

Hello  my dear lovely crafty friends, Welcome back to my blog. 

A very warm good evening to you all. How are you all doing??

Welcome back to My Time To Craft Challenge and this fortnight our theme for the challenge is LOVE.

Valentine's day is coming near so start preparing something unique gift and cards to your loved ones. 

I have created an double page art journal using my favourite Insta Transfer and I love working with it.

First I coloured the journal pages with distress inks using blending brushes and gave a coat of clear gesso on it.

To add texture, I took stencil and distress ink and started blending it.

Next I took cute old couples insta transfer images and applied it on the page upside down. 

Now take a wet sponge and start dabbing it on the image back and make sure it get fully wet, leave 5 to 10 seconds and slowly remove the backing so that image get transfer on the pages. Let it dry for 10-15 minutes, don't use any heat tool to dry it. Let it dry naturally. 

Next give a coat of matt varnish on the insta transfer images. 

Now I added few stamping to give more texture on my pages. 

Finally I added few washi tape on my pages.

Hope you like it. Please do give feedback so that I can improve myself more.
