Dylusional Journal Pages

This months challenge from the Inspiration Emporium Blog is
A Splash of Color.

This page is a really fun way to create something different in your Journal and it's certainly "with color".  I learned this cool technique from Dyan Reaveley using the
It really is a fantastic tool that can be used for adding journaling or as a guide for cutting your pages as I did here.


Here's just a few steps to this 5 section, 3 page Journal page. There's a lot of spraying, stamping, embossing, stenciling and ghosting here, but I'm mainly showing you how to cut and assemble your pages. The decorating is up to you.

I used Dylusions Spray Inks and Distress Inks with several pens and markers.


This spread actually required 3 single pages. The white section below is cut and removed from the middle page by just tracing the edge of the block 2 inches from the edge.
  

 The white piece is removed, embossed and decorated.
  
Since you cut the smallest section OUT of the Journal, you're able to run it through an embossing folder if you want before adding it back into your book.
   

This is page 1 on the left. You draw and cut the larger section on the right 3 1/2 inches from the right edge. Remove and decorate as above with stencils and pens.

My second page is actually upside down....but I didn't care. You can decide how you want yours to be.

The pink Flower page was mostly stamped and decorated with white pens.


After decorating, take the 2 cut pieces, match the edges and add to your Journal with Tissue Tape on top of page 1. 


This shows the last page on the right (page 3) and the back side of the above flower page 2.


Turn the page, and you should see this! Page 1 (backside), 2 (front), and 3 (front). Get it?


Confused yet? Just take your time and it should all come together for you and look like this after you've gotten them all inked and stamped.

So, in review, 3,4, and 5 sections are permanently in the Journal. Sections 1 and 2 are pieces cut and added with Tissue Tape.

The result is gorgeous and worth all the work.

I'm confused by it all, but I'm not a big spray person anyway (which doesn't mean that I don't have 'em. I just don't use 'em all that often).
