Saturday Journal page

It's been a funny old week.  Some weeks are rally long - you remember every day and what goes on - this week I feel like someone has pinched 2 days - it's flown by.  I have no idea where it went or what I have been doing.

But I do know I did my journal today.  It's such a beautiful sunny day I brought out my ice cream stamps.  These are a Woodware set and quite old now.  The scene is created with layers and masks to get the illusion of a group.  I 'undercoated' the ice cream tops with a few coats of Dylusions White Linen because I wanted to see if I could get a thicker ice creamy look to it - then dried it with my heat gun before adding the other Dylusions colours.  It has worked really well I think.

The glass dishes are just shaded with bit more of the same ink and the Funky Fuchsia added for a bit of depth.

I have used white drawing ink and a pointed pen nib to doodle highlights over the top - I love the way the inks soak up through the ink and it ends up a pale and solid type highlight.
