LTSCB; August Challenge For The Kids

The challenge theme at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog this month is...For The Kids! I decided to do a page of my granddaughter’s birth in my Junk Journal for this month’s challenge.

This is a magazine page that has been painted over with a variety of mediums such as acrylic paint, watercolor markers, ink, and pencils. I covered the entire thing with white gesso.

The tag on the right is an old clothing tag which was covered with white acrylic paint. Once it dried, I stamped the daisies and hand wrote the baby’s name and birth details on it. I used paint markers for the leaves and flowers.

I printed two wallet size photos to fit this 5.5x7” journal page.

If you’re interested in seeing other junk journal spreads, click on the “Junk Journal” label to the right. These are so much fun to put together and a great place to experiment with techniques, supplies and other ideas.
I decided to add a little more to this page by using the paint pens to add “grass” at the base of the flower stems and the tag, stamped the word “love” to the top and added some journaling. I also added some gemstones and a sprinkle of hearts.
 I added a little bit of yellow around LOVE and a black Uni-ball pen to create a border and used the same pen to add some borders around the tag.

I had this alphabet stamp set since I started stamping back in 2000! I love using what I have!

The painted plaid on the bottom is actually from a page behind this one!

Now it’s your on over to the LTSCB and link your “For The Kids” project before the end of the month.
