Instructions 

It may not be Christmas yet, but when you have new adorable Christmas Stamps like these, you just can’t resist getting into the spirit! Whip up a page in no time using Dylusions Ink Sprays for a quick and easy background. 

 

 

Dylusions Christmas is a Feeling Journal Page Step 1

Step 1: Open to a page in your Square Ledger Journal and mist with water.  Along the bottom of the page, spray some Dylusions Mushy Peas Ink Spray. Then spray some Dylusions Ink Spray in Vibrant Turquoise along the top. Blot with a paper towel and let dry.

Step 2: Add a faint background to your page using second-generation stamping. To do this, ink your holly stamp from the Dylusions Stamp Set Mr. Boo’s Adventure with Distress Archival Ink in Crushed Olive. Stamp first onto a scrap piece of paper. Stamp a second time onto your background.

Step 5: To create a border around your page, you will need some washi tape to mask off the other page. Apply some paint to the perimeter of your page with Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise Paint, using the Dylusions Journaling Block to create a wavy border.

Step 7: Color in your stamped images with Dylusions Ink Spray, and then cut the images out.  

The colors used here are Vibrant Turquoise, Polished Jade, Dirty Martini, and Mushy Peas. White Linen Dylusions Paint was also used to color in the mustache and beard.
