Vera Lane Studio: Journal Faces Pocket Letter


Today I'm sharing a DT project for Vera Lane Studio.  

This beautiful new set of digital stamps, called Journal Faces, is released today and in the Vera Lane Studio Facebook Group you have the chance to win a set.

For my DT project I decided to make a Pocket Letter.

I started by making a mixed media masterboard from A4 heavy card. I clear embossed some text using a Kaisercraft ' Script' stamp, then used a blending tool to add Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Shaded Lilac and Evergreen Bough.  Next I applied some texture paste through a Dylusions 'Chequered Circles' stencil and finally some fine white and black paint splatters. 

The card was cut into 9 ATC-sized pieces (6.5cm x 9cm) and the edges inked in Vintage Photo.

The images are from a selection of Vera Lane sets, but the focal points are the newly released Journal Faces. The images were coloured with alcohol pens and then fussy cut. They were adhered directly onto the ATCs and embellishments such as glitter tape, tiny gems and lace were added. Heart of Gold Prills were added to the centre of the flowers, Glossy Accents to the bird's rain boots and a strip of bling was added to the spine.

Here are close ups of each row:

And here are the four Journal Faces - aren't they beautiful?  I try to imagine what each one is thinking....


I thought that maybe they could represent the four stages in a woman's life, although none of them look particularly 'old'!  I like to think I'm still at 'stage 3', although I need to admit that I'm fast approaching 'stage 4'!!!


WIN!!!    WIN!!!    WIN!!!

If you think know which VLS sets I used for my Pocket Letter and would like the chance to win a set of Journal Faces, come over to the 
Vera Lane Studio Facebook Group and take part in the fun.
