Y is for YES

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 YES.

Sorry about the photo - the sun came out!

I stuck my book page down on a scrap piece of printer paper with a glue stick.

I put another piece of paper over the top and marked where the page was just so I could practise it with the printer.   I used Publisher but you could do this in whatever software you have.  I worked out where the photo should go and then did a practise run with the spare sheet.

Then I put the book page through the printer.  This is a photo of some art work that I did that I had printed as a postcard.

I sprayed the yellow and lime onto the page which as you can see buckled somewhat  because the page before wasn't totally dry!

I sprayed the yellow again over a Crafter's Workshop stencil of wire netting.   I stamped randomly with a crackle stamp.  I tore the edges of my book paper and inked the torn edges.  I inked the verse and the quote and stuck them all down.

I stamped the word and coloured it in with a Jellyroll pen.

I wrote my journaling.

Only one more letter to go and you will have a finished book.

See you tomorrow for Z.



  1. Really interesting to see the development of that lovely page - printing your own artwork on top is very clever!
