Modroc Journal

Hi there everyone;
I'm gearing myself up for a GREAT weekend. Tim Holtz has landed in the UK and guess who is getting to see him tomorrow?! Well; I'm hoping it is going to be himself doing the Ranger workshop tomorrow at the NEC and my entrance ticket is safely in my bag and the excitement is mounting; either way I'll tell you all about it next week. Then on Sunday I've a class at The Craft Barn so all in all a fun filled exciting weekend!!!!!!!!
So today I thought I'd share the rest of my journal with you. Some of you will have seen bits on the Craft Barn blog HERE but I wanted to share these pages with you.
Here's the front cover
 All the journal pages have been made out of modroc (Plaster of Paris bandage) and tied together with vintage lace. There are 10 pages all together. This is the cover and the medallion has been made with friendly plastic, a Sweet Peas stamp, black acrylic paint and plenty of Inka gold! I just love the way it turned out!
 This page has some of my hand made papers, The image(also Sweet Pea) has been stamped onto mica and the back painted to highlight.
 This page is similar but with some alcohol inks too. I just love these images! I like the textural contrast too between the mica and the roughness of the pages.
 Again, I love the softness of the image and the subtle distress inks against the pages.
 These pages use stamps from The Artistic Stamper and also Katzelkraft, again, gorgeous images that work well with the textures.
 These stamps from Toodles and Binks work well too for layering up backgrounds; I just need to find the right journalling!
The lastly, the back page, another Sweet Pea and friendly plastic medallion. I really enjoyed making this journal and there is still place to add writing etc so it is very much a work in progress I love to look at it and run my hands through it to feel the textures!
Hope you enjoy seeing it too.
Have a fun and creative weekend!

There are some fabulous textures going on there! Thanks for your visit and kind thoughts....please feel free to cut up those sentiment stamp images!....I don't regard it as my own idea....for all I know someone has done it before me and I'm darn sure someone will do it after me!!! LOL...I don't have enough hours in the day to search the net to find out ;)
Have fun at Stitches and it goes without saying that I'm feeling one of the 7 deadly sins at this moment!!! ROFL
