U is for Unique

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 Unique.

I put three different shades of acrylic ink on the plastic bag.  I scooped the paint out of some Dabbers.

I put my page down onto the paint and pressed onto it.

There was a lot of wet paint so I closed the book again so there was paint on both sides.  That's how the turquoise paint got onto yesterday's page!  Siince you don't know what is coming tomorrow I suggest if you want a second print you use a piece of paper rather than the next page in your journal!

I used a brush to paint a thin layer of a yellow acrylic paint over the top.  I used a very wet brush and added water on the page.

I stamped the leaves across the top and down the side, inked the verse and quote and stuck them on.   I stamped the word.

I painted the green leaves using a brush and the lime spray ink.   I coloured in the word with a glaze pen.

I added my journaling.

I hope you are still enjoying the adventure.  Only 5 more letters to go!
