Get creative with the Dina Wakley MEdia Burlap pages in the Blue Edition Journal with this tutorial by Megan Whisner Quinlan. Follow along as she shows you how to cut  pages from the journal, Collage Collective, and stamped images from cling stamps, to piece together this beautiful lady focal piece.

Instructions 

In this project, we will be adding a focal image to your white burlap page from the Dina Wakley Blue Edition journal (although this project could be used on any page). The Collage Collective volumes leave you with so many images to use in your products as either an embellishment or as something that can be your focal point on a page. Dina often encourages her students to cut up and “shop” the book for inspiration or color.  In this project, we will be using the Dina Wakley Work in Progress Cling Stamp set and images from the Collage Collective to create a beautiful lady with an intriguing headdress.

Step 1: Stamp the face and text from the Work in Progress stamp onto some white Cardstock. Trace around the head with a pencil creating a hair line, and add a neck and shoulders. Cut out.

Step 6: Cut out your stamped flowers and begin to arrange them with your cut-out flowers from the Collage Collective onto the top of your image’s head. The alignment is entirely up to you. Here the flowers began and branched out from the side angle. You could choose to place them on the center of the head as well.

Step 7: Stamp some flowers from the Good Idea set onto some more scraps from the Collage Collective, and cut out. Add them to your headdress to pull it together. Let some hang out from the sides.
