SPRING Journal Page

This stamp set went into my cart the second it hit the store. Love the Tim Man!! That Audubon Egg is to die for. With Easter just around the corner, it is perfect. Today I am showing you an easy walk through, I am doing a journal page, however it will work just as well for a tag, or a layout, depending on what size stamp you buy. This sample uses the larger stamp set.
Assemble your working tools, Stamp set, Dylusions journal blank book, {it comes in large or small} Dylusions ink white and light blue, embossing glue, black or brown embossing powder, mica flakes, craft mat, heat tool, StazOn ink, Faber Castell India ink black pen.
STEP 1.}Play a bit with your bird and nest stamps for position on page. Lightly sketch a tree branch for the bird to perch on as well as the nest. Note: If I was doing this on a tag or a layout, I would have used an actual tree branch. I didn't use that here because I need the book to close after.
STEP 2.} Emboss your birds and nest in the desired area of your journal page. I used a detail black embossing powder and Distress Embossing powder for the nest.
STEP 3.}Quickly sketch over the branches to make them pop. This is a quick process, you will be adding more layers.
STEP 4.} Spritz white Dylusions in random places, followed by a light blue spray of your choice. Daub it around a bit. Then dry thoroughly with a heat gun.

STEP 5.} Use a mixture of Texture paint, spray, and mica base texturizing embossing powders. Pile it on the your craft mat, and apply with a pallet knife to the tree branch sections of the page. This is a non fussy bit of smearing it around. A light touch on the nest to tie things in.
STEP 6.} Stamp along the edge of your project with the solid egg first {In light blue} then follow wit StazOn in black or brown with the speckled egg. Use the feather with random stamping. Color the birds and feathers lightly with distress inks and your finger.

Last Steps, Look at your page, add a title in or journaling. Fill in large spaces with butterfly stamp or leaf stamp. Have fun, this is a quick easy journal page.

Oh Pam, this is gorgeous!! I love the idea of using a real branch too. That egg is to die for - they look so real!
