A couple of us on the Imaginisce design team were give an assignment. It's called the Art of Journaling. That's all we were given as guidance. I took the assignment very literally.
Supplies used: Imaginisce Happy Harvest colleciton - 003337 (Autumn Splendor), 003338 (Apple Crsip), 003339, 003342 (I Love Fall), 003353 (Fall Friends Icon DieCuts); i-top 2.0 small & medium brads, 18 & 22 mm punches; Bazzill Basics (Navel); Copic Sketch Markers in YG63, YR07, Y17; Kaisercraft Tiny Alpha Stickers (Toffee Apple); Cosmo Cricket Ready - Set - Chip adhesive chipboard alpha - Red Line (Used the negative space); green rafia; misc orange and chocolate ribbon
I put a lot more focus on my journaling than I normally do and I got a bit creative with my Copics. Here's what I did. While sketching out my layout, I purposefully set aside about 1/3 of my "white space" for the journaling. I put the layout all together and then I wrote out my journaling on a scrap piece of paper. I chose certain words I wanted accented. Then I took about half of those and drew a box around them. I took the other half and wrote them in different font. This was my guide for spacing on the actual layout. Once I had it how I wanted it I drew lines on my layout in pencil and starting writing with my chocolate marker. Once dried, I erase the pencil lines, drew my boxes and just randomly started coloring.
I also used the new Imaginisce i-top 2.0 tool that I recently got. I have to tell you that I just love the new i-top. It's just easier to use and the rubber grips at the top are much improved. Like I said, it's just easier, not that the other was hard. :)
Did you notice that the brads I made are made from rafia? I wanted to try to mimic the corn maze. Being on the DT (and actually just in general), I am all about trying new things with the tool. Here's what I did:
- Then I cut the snipped the rafia, cutting around the circle as well as between the crevices.
Then I attached the brad using my i-top like I normally would with paper of fabric. It was a bit bulkier but it held extremely well!
Thanks for stopping by today!
