Step 1: Place masking tape down the centre of your journal this stops leaking on to other pages. I used a paint brush to cover the pages with white gesso.

Step 2: On my craft mat I put my two paints side by side and then I pick some of the paint up on scrapper and then applied it to my journal pages.

Step 3: Once the paint was dry (helped along with my heat gun) I then laid my stencil on each page and instead of adding to the pages I removed some of the paint with a baby wipe. If you don't have any baby wipes you can do it with a damp rag or paper towel.

Step 4: I decided that the paint was a bit brighter than I wanted it to be so I applied a very thin layer of gesso with my paint brush. Once the gesso was I sprayed my pages with water and started to dry the water. Before the water was completely dry using a piece of paper towel I mopped up some of the water which also removed some of the gesso.

Step 5: Using my stamp and ink pad I stamped images on both my pages. Then using the end of a plastic paint scrapper I just touched my gesso and then using it as I stamp I stamped lines to create the flowers.

Step 6: Stuck the wording on to my page.
