DT Project #2 by Minxy, Featuring:

Prima/ Finnabair Sunrise Sunset Collection

Hay lovely peeps, As promised i'm back for another offering of Finn/Prima goodness
This time in the form of a journal spread.

I have to admit when I received the Finnabair mixed media journal in our kit I was both delighted and terrified. I just adore how Finn makes over her covers, but having never given anything like that a go b4 I totally bottled doing it as I didn't want to ruin the journal, so went for the safe option and opted for a double page spread instead! I promise when I do get the cover done I will share on my blog {some time in the distant future lol

I started by removing 2 of the kraft pages from the journal to work on, it's much easier without the rings in the way.
I stamped 2 of the opposite corners with the sunrise sunset clear set 4 in black archival.
I then sliced a piece of the A4 sunrise sunset paper in half, and rounded the outer corners to match the journal pages.
I sprayed 'vibrant turquoise' & 'cut grass' dylusions spray through the sunrise sunset 6x6 checkers stencil in a band across the middle of the pages.

Next I scraped texture paste through the sunrise sunset flower stencil, When it had dried, I placed the stencil back over the same place and applied permanent red shade pan pastel to the raised peaks with a sofft tool knife. Replacing the stencil before colouring stops any excess pan pastel from getting all over the page.

I used Tim's checkerboard texture fade on kraft card as I wanted a little more dimension but continuing the same pattern. I wiped it with some 'fire brick' distress ink.

Then it was just as case of layering up the photo's with some extra elements, like the sunrise sunset washi tape and sunrise sunset wood icons, along with some of  my own washi tape made by stamping the checker from the sunrise sunset clear stamp 4 set onto micropore tape.
I also made some mini rosettes from more of the A4 SS paper and finished with a couple of the engraver mini roses I had left over from last months kit and one of the vintage trinket medium flowers that I cut into pieces as the petals looked like leaves. Oh and a final bit of stamping with the ss clear stamp 4 flowers in 'vermillion' archival ink to add a bit more red in between the 2 photo's {which by the way is me and my OH Tony strawberry picking about 2 or 3 years ago.}

So I hope you have enjoyed my projects this month, any/all comments are gratefully received xo
Oh and don't forget on Monday 8th we have the Finn Inspired challenge where myself and the rest team will be showing off how Finn inspires us and where you could be the lucky winner of the Mixed Media Journal by showing us how she inspires you!

Till then..Stay Inky
