Texture and dimension

The new challenge over at Sarah Hurley's blog is Texture and Dimension. What better excuse could there be for getting messy!

I recently treated myself to one of Sarah's Day Books and have to say it's one of the best things I've ever bought. It's A5 size with about 20 pages of silky paper in a variety of backgrounds so there is a page ready to use anytime, without worrying about the background paper. Love it!

I used my favourite stamp from Wish Upon a Star set with some journaling cards and a small chevron bag mixed and matched from some of  my A Few of My Favourite Things monthly kits. The sentiments are from Star stamp set. The plan is to use the chevron bag to put a small journaling card in when I've written something appropriate.

I stencilled some gesso chevrons using Sarah's chevron stencil and mixed in some liquid pearl. Of course I didn't know when to stop and ruined the girl's dress when the sparkly Mod Podge I put on made the promarker run but let's just say that's the effect I was going for!
