12 Months in View Journal Page

I finally got brave and dug out the HUGE journal.  I bought it awhile back but I found it's size so intimidating.  All of my previous journaling has been done in a 5 1/2 in. x 8 in. Strathmore Visual Journal for mixed media.  This one is a whopping 9 in. x 12 in.  But I bravely pressed on even though that huge blank page was daring me to create something.  So I did.....

I made another Summer page using the colors that were chosen for summer on 12 Months in View.  After gessoing the page, I painted a strip in the middle of the page using Liquitex acrylic in Turner's Yellow.  Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Tea Dye to ink through several different stencils.  I love the quote that I came across for summer. I am quite pleased with the results and I managed to fill the page quite nicely.

I will be entering my page in the Simon Say Stamp Challenge "Brought to You By The Letter S" since it is titled Summer and I stamped and stenciled the page.  Lots of "S"es there!

Thanks for dropping by.

Great page, I love the watercolour feel you've achieved with the background. Thanks for joining us for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge!

Lovely page and quote. Beautiful colors. I can imagine how a bigger journal, with bigger whites, can be daunting, but your first page is great.
