Finishing Journal Pages

I haven’t completed a journal page for ages, I’ve been making lots of backgrounds but not finishing the actual page so I decided to be brave and use up one of my backgrounds.

Here is a page I’ve had in my head for a while now, probably from the first time I saw this stamp! The stamp is Suzi Blu Love Yourself and is available from Make The Day Special.

I’ve stamped her onto a gesso treated book page and coloured her with ZIG Art and Graphic Twin Pens using the brush tip to give the feathering texture to her dress.

I drew my cherry blossom branch and bird cage but if you don’t feel like drawing yours then check out the My Cute Stamps section in Make The Day Special! 

I used the ZIG Millennium pens to draw and coloured the blossom with acrylic paint and ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens.

The background was made using watercolour techniques with acrylic paints. 

I’m not entirely sure she is finished, I kinda would like to put some Japanese calligraphy on the page but seeing as I don’t know any it might take a while before I finish this one! 

I think I might be suffering from completion fear 🙂

Thanks for popping by today.
