A Before and After Journal Page in an Altered Book

I did this about 2 years ago.
This time I added rice paper with the fish and added some shading with Pitt pens.
I accentuated the seahorses with outlining. Originally they were done with ink through a stencil.
The sea grass was done with a tree stencil and modelling paste. I think I coloured it with markers. This time I went over it with the Pitt pens - green & black.

The lattice is modelling paste through a stencil. I didn't do anything to it this time except cover a lot of it up with the rice paper.

The scrolls around the edge are stamped.
They don't show much now though! I added the bubbles with black gel pen. They are part of the seahorse stencil.

 I also outlined the fish because I tried to accentuate them with a white chalk paint pen and ended up having to remove most of it.

Sunday Sentiments - 4x6 Art Card - Oct 19, 2014

I already had the background done with homemade sprays made from SU re-inker and water. I had gessoed it first. I have a heap of these cards from when I was a Linen consultant so they have text on them. They are invitation cards.
I recently bought some Tim Holtz stamps that were almost half price. The stamps here are from the Urban Chic collection by Stampers Anonymous. I think it's been around for a while. I used Versafine ink which really gives a great impression every time. The circular dots stamp is by Hero Arts - I went over the image with a black paint pen. The floral border is a rub-on from Art Stamps Australia.

I stamped the hearts on the background and also on white card and cut out 3 different sizes. The sentiment is also stamped on white card. I outlined the hearts and the bird with the black paint pen and inked the edges of the card with black Archival Ink. I added some more texture to the background by stamping the splatter dots which were on the edge of the heart stamp.

My page for the "Word of Inspiration Wednesday" On Kraafters Kommunity #WOIW

The background is coloured with spray inks on watercolour paper. I used modelling paste coloured with chalk through a Crafters Workshop Stencil. The hearts are a stamp from Stampin' Up - I used a SU marker to ink the stamp and added white gel pen outlining.
The focal image is done with a House Mouse stamp and coloured with watercolour pencils. I went over the popcorn with the gel pen.
The lettering is my handwriting on red card with white gel pen.The pen is a UniBall Signo. I also punched out the red heart and outlined it.

Layout for You Tube giveaway - shawnlyn72 - 100 subscribers

The layout is to be about someone special to me.
This is my Grand-daughter Matsya when she was about 18 months old. I had these photos printed out and NOT scrapbooked. So of course she is special! She is now 8 years old! I'll do another tomorrow one as she looks now. This is the only page I have done in the last year or 2 as I have been playing with mixed media!
