My Other Creations: Journal Page using Dina Wakley's 6x6 White Media Journal and Tim Holtz's Glitch 2 Stamp Set

This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog theme is "all a-buzz."  Since the crafting community has been buzzing about the new Distress color being released this month, I used only Distress products to color my journal page. 

I started out with my Dina Wakley 6x6 white media journal.  The pages are very thick and textural-- almost like a flexible canvas/paper combo.  I used Tim Holtz's Dotted stencil and sprayed on Distress Stain Spray (Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, and Worn Lipstick).  I didn't want the whole entire background covered with stenciled dots, so I cut a circle out of a piece of paper and laid it on my page before I sprayed.  Then, after I sprayed, I removed the circle and it left a nice big circular area of white on the background. 

I added some more stenciling, this time using Tim Holtz's Haftone stencil and some white paint.  When that was dry, I did some stamping with Tim Holtz's Glitch 2 stamp set.

And as always, I had to get my teals, blues and greens in, which I did with Distress Paint.  I also added some brown tones around the edges using Ground Espresso.

The colors were a little too bold for the look I was going for on this one, so I toned some areas down with another layer of white paint.  Then I added some more stamping (still using the Glitch 2 set) and added some tiny little plus signs (Altenew's Positivity Washi tape).

Last but not least was the sentiment.  I got this from Inky Antics' Paint Love stamp set.  I re-arranged the words, cut them out and glued them on.

Here are the products I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
