Follow along as Beth Purnell shows you how to make this colorful interactive mermaid pocket page in your Dyalog using Dylusions Paints, Stamps and Stencils.

 

Instructions 

Hi, Everyone!!  Today I have created a mermaid pocket page in the Dylusions Dyalog.  I love pockets, tags, and hidden messages.  I also adore the Dyalog sytem.  I use my Dyalog as a monthly art journal/diary.   I add something that captures the day on each page.   On this page I recorded the date and the best part of the day on the back of tags and put them in pockets I created from stamps.   

I hope you enjoy this project!!

Step 6:  Adhere mermaid head to page with Dylusions glue stick making sure to only glue a small portion along the bottom and sides.  Leave the top open, this is where your tags will be placed.

Step 7:  Decorate the back of the patterned hexagons.  Use the Dylusions Dyalog stamps in Numerology and Whatever with Ranger Archival Ink to add the day and month to the back of one of the patterned hexagons.  Add your own personal message about the day on the back of the second tag. My daughter and I were inking in our journals, so I added a photo and message to the back of my second tag. This is definitely a memory I will always treasure!!

    Hi Beth. So sad you had to go through such drama to discover art journaling. I was so touched by your story. I’m new too to the “business” after trying almost everything available. But after discovering Dyan I really found my passion. I get tired quickly when doing 1 thing like aquarel or clay, … but this is a lot of different things and I love it. I’m certainly going to try your lovely pockets. I’ll tag you so you can see my version on my wannabee_creative account. Hope to see more of you and wishing you lots of strength in these difficult times. Love, Mady
