This is Page 1 of a double page entry. This nearly ended up crumpled in a ball on at least 3 occasions but I decided I couldn’t do that with a journal page. Worst Gift was easy – scratchy undies. To be fair to Lens Guy it has been a long time since he gave these to me as a gift and he maintains they were black not red and black. It is now a running joke between us and I like that we can both laugh about it.
I found a corset image on Graphic Fairy’s website and coloured it with black, red and blender aqua markers on glossy photo paper.
I then used pointy tool to scratch words. I used freebie magazine stamps of presents and stamped them on page and then clear embossed them.
I stamped and coloured a woodware toadstool above one present. Added distress inks and aqua makers to colour. Then purple stazon but I used the cleaner to remove and blotch the page. I stuck corset down with mod podge and then rubbed mod podge over the page with my fingers.
|At this point it was heading for the bin|
|I do create a huge mess ... I just use greaseproof baking powder as craft sheet bit pricy|
When dry I journaled with a sharpie. The Gifts panel was clear embossed and again scratched out words. Some details below.
