more portfolios

I had another play with my portfolios yesterday..sat in front of the tv with my journal...There have been some excellent projects this week over on the paper artsy blog pop over and have a look here..Leandra has put up some great videos and examples for you to see.

I used purples..peach and red portfolios to do my background I stamped a bold diamond stamp down the side using archival ink then added stamped images on tissue randomly over the pages..I zapped it with a heat gun so the the wax would disappear into the pages..(very weird).

Then a hand written quote (not very neat I might add).."Doing what you like is freedom..Liking what you do is happiness"...so true...Finally I added black around the edges with my black big brush pen.

Thanks for stopping by...........................


  1. Can't see the details on my phone very well but what I can see is gorgeous xx

  2. Lovely pages Lin! It is weird how the waxy sheen disappears I agree but very much fun! Your writing is a heck of a lot neater than mine would be!

  3. Very nice pages - like the colours and how the black edge makes it feel moody. Claire X

  4. Fantastic pages and great constitution and colours. xx

  5. Your writing looks fine to me and I have no idea what you mean about the wax disappearing, guess I'll have to try it xx
