My head is buzzing with idea's using Eileen Hull's new House Ornament Die. I covered the mount board with gorgeous papers from Mintay by Korola called dear diary. Then die cut and made up the house.
The house is made up from two die cuts, so simple.
I added texture with Prima's Graphite paste and lots of fussy cut elements from the paper pack.
I added a little white gesso with the dry brush technique, to lighten any area's that wear too dark.
Really love how the house turned out, the texture is fab.

I absolutely love the new Gift Card and Folder #2 Die, and can see so many uses for it, and it's fabulous for anyone who loves making Junk Journals.
I've used these beautiful papers from Mintay by Karola. The design is called dear diary and has lots of elements to snip out and use on your projects.
I've inked around the edges with Flagstone from Eileen's range of Color Box Blends just to add a little shabby to the project, and finished off with the word Love from the Journaling Words Die set.

I love to watercolour so when these new re-inkers arrived from Clearsnap for Eileen Hull's Colorbox Blends, I just had to give them a go.
I covered a Notebook die cut with a piece of canvas, and chose the colours I wanted to use.
The inks are super thick and opaque as you can tell from the image above, you can't see through to the black mat. When you dilute them they go so far, so you only need the smallest drop of ink.
I sketched out a Seahorse (yes I know I'm predictable lol) and a pattern in the background. Then set about adding colour with the diluted inks. They blend beautifully, and considering I'm working on fabric, they are fantastic.
I layered the colours up until I was happy with the result. Then after leaving to dry naturally, I added markings over the top with a black Micron pen and also a white Gelly Roll pen for highlights.
I added a little journaling to the edge of the spine to complete the cover. Now onto the inside!
Hope you give this technique a try.
