Christmas Journaling Fun


Hello! Peggy here to show you a two page journal with a jingle kinda theme...I'm just in that kind of mood lately ya know with the tree an all already up. Haha So, this month we are partnering with Cottonwood Arts. 
Molding paste
Stazon blue ink
White gesso
Gelatos 
Water colors
Cardstock
Dictionary paper
Copics
glue or matte medium

The first thing I did was sketch out a santa face so I knew approx. where he would be on both pages. Then I got out my stamps and white gesso. I stamped randomly with my unmounted stamps using gesso as a resist. Next I watercolored a blue background.
I used red gelatos to bring out that resist. More background stamping this time with blue stazon ink.
Time for texture! But before this stage I used dictionary paper for a mustash. Next the molding paste. Like icing a cake! 

 I used copic markers to color his face
 More stamping with white gesso, rolling my stamp over the page with a brick background. And now embellishments with some fussy cutting and glue.




I hope you have enjoyed my goofy side as much as I had fun making it! Thank you to Cottonwoodarts our november sponsor
I hope I have inspired you to create your own goofy side!.
Thank you for joining me! Stamps and Stencils and much more can be found at Sin City Stamps
