I previously shared a post on this Recollections Mixed Media Journal. I decorated the cover, and if you are interested in seeing it check out my post here.
With the cover finished, I moved on to the first inside page. I decided to make it a page remembering my husband's and my wedding day. The first thing I did was take a few of my Tattered Angel's paints and apply them to the background. I used the colors Lilac Rose and Black Orchid, which are both chalkboard glimmer mists.
Next, I took some Damask Tissuestock from CCB and tore it into several pieces. I applied it to the background by painting some Clear Glimmer Glam over the top and then letting it dry.
My next step was to take a coordinating piece of paper from a Recollections paper pack and I tore it so it would fit on the left page. Over that I placed a strip of vellum that I heat embossed some white embossing paste around the edges of.
I used my faded text background stamp next with some white gesso to add some stamping to some places on the paper.
Then, I started to add my embellishments and my photos. I printed off three photos from our wedding and arranged them in a cluster on the bottom left page. Then, I used some die cuts from Kaiser Craft, 7 Gypsies lace, and some 7 Gypsies Harmony papers to embellish around them.
The last thing I did was to stamp and heat emboss a quote on some vellum.
Thanks so much for taking the time to check out my mixed media journal. I plan to post about the other pages I am yet to create. I hope you will join me on my mixed media journey!

So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
