Guess what arrived at my local Stamp Store last week? The new Creative Journal from Dyan Reaveley for Ranger! I didn't get a chance to play with it the first night but last Friday I spent the afternoon with Betty and Lynna playing in our new journals!
First I just have to tell you how wonderful the paper is in the journal...wonderful texture and weight, perfect for spraying and ghosting and adding layers of color.
I began by spritzing my page with water then sprayed on a generous amount of Bubblegum Pink, Squeezed Orange and Pure Sunshine Dylusions ink sprays. I then Used the Chequered Dots stencil on the edges and sprayed Crushed Grape through that.
I then used the Let it Snow Stencil and sprayed water through that for the ghosted snowflakes. Then I went to town adding lots of stamping and doodling. (All stamps used listed below)
All products can be found locally or by mail in Betty's Scrapbook Room or order online through Dyan's store in the UK . (all products listed below)
This is the facing page. Lots more stamping and doodling. I also added some snowflakes from the Let it Snow Stencil using Picket Fence Distress Stain by Tim Holtz.
After the images were stamped I went in with a Ranger water brush and picked up colors of the various Dylusions sprays and colored in parts of the images.
And of course, lots more doodling. I used my Copic multi liner and Signo white gel pen.
Here's a closeup of my reindeer turned into a present. Ho Ho Ho...
