A Creative Muse - chipboard journal


Hola! How are you today? Hope you are in the best of health.

Today's post is on journalling on chipboard. It was given to me to play with by Scrapbook Memories. I had them painted at first with black gesso, white gesso, sprayed with Colour wash and lots more. Finally, I decided to cover 'em all up. What a waste to those inks! I thought that it would be better if I can get rid of old stocks of Kaisercraft papers that I bought 3 years ago from a craft warehouse in Moorabbin. So there they are! I didn't cover the front and back page though. Thought that it's better to leave them raw.
As you can see, I did a lot of stamping! using Tim Holtz's stamps and also from Graphic 45, 7 Gypsies as well as Hero Arts. I created the lines for journalling in white and black as above.
The pages above are smeared with colour wash by Ranger.
And so is this one on the left. Journalling lines are added again in black. On the right, I have created a pocket to slot in tags and etc.
And the back cover above, which is left raw. It was stamped, heat embossed with enamels, stenciled with distress inks and sprayed with colour wash by Ranger. And a bit of doodling if you look close enough. Hehe...
Notice anything peculiar about this page?

And lastly, instead of rings, I have used polka dot ribbon and beaded string (Daiso) to secure the pages together. Simple.

Thanks for stopping by! Ciao!
