This is the first time I have not completed my calendar journal on time, life has been a bit busy here. I have n embellished my journal as much as I would have liked, but hopefully now that Regional Day is over, next month's pages should be more interesting. I have yet to make my July pages, with a bit of luck if the appointment hubby and I have tonight doesn't go on to long (I don't hold out much hope of that!) I might get started. This challenge was set up by Kate of the blog Kathyrnwheel, follow the link to see all the journals that are taking part in this challenge.
Kezzy had an appointment at the dentist this morning to plan the next step of her orthodontic treatment, as it didn't take long, I was able to start on my pages for July before going to work.
As it was Kezzy's Prom on Sunday, I used the colour of her dress and the balloons she came home with as my inspiration.
I prepared the pages with a coat of gesso first.
When dry, I used these paints, in various shades of blue and applied them with a sponge in a random manner. Tonight, because the meeting had been postponed until tomorrow evening, I was able to carry on with July. I sprayed over the pages with Angel Glimmer Mist in Jazz Blue.
I have wanted to break away from square boxes for my journalling, so this month was an ideal opportunity to do so. I cut out stars in white card and outlined them roughly with a fine pen. Once applied to the page, I dabbed more Glimmer mist with a sponge over them to take the starkness off of them. Sequin stars were applied randomly over the page. It was only after I had finished that I realised that the stars are very appropriate for this month - July 4th, Idependence Day in U.S.A.
Just need now, to start journalling on them.
