S is for Self Image

If you want to join in with making an A to Z of Me Journal through the month of February click through to the Challenge blog.

Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Self Image.

In this journal I like the pages that lie side by side to have the same colour scheme if possible.  Here I sprayed inks onto both pages and then closed the book so that the inks merged on both sides.

Do you remember doing this at school to get a butterfly effect?

Then I worked on the page on the left by spraying some more lime green.

I used one of the silhouettes from the pdf download for today and stuck it down on my page with removable tape.  If you're quick you can use glue stick instead.

Then I sprayed with a turquoise ink, left it to air dry for a while and then dried it off with a paper towel.

When I removed the silhouette I was left with this fabulous colour shining through.

I stamped the word and stuck on the quote and the verse.   I coloured in the word with a glaze pen.

And then I added the journaling inside the shape.

I hope you have enjoyed today's prompts.  See you tomorrow.



  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Love how you have used it as a stencil, I might just have to do that too, even better than leaving the silhouette on the page. Fantastic page.

  2. I love this idea. I made a couple of sihouettes from magazine pages but love the pdf images. The ones from the magazine that I made I covered with packing tape and fixed them to some stiff manilla folders that I had. This way they don't get all mushy from the inks and I can clean them off and reuse them. Just thought I'd pass that idea along. Your colors are wonderful and I like the "butterfly affect" from smooshing the pages together.

  3. Fabulous colours! The orange stands out beautifully against the blue.
