Spectrum Journal Pages

Evening all .

Just thought I'd share my (finally) completed art journal pages.

I love the song "Spectrum" by Florence and the Machnine and thought that the lyrics were perfect for a bit of journalling.  I intend to use lyrics as journalling prompts in the future cos I love em!

Firstly I painted the pages with acrylic paints.  Once side was stippled in concentric circles and the other side was painted with random brush strokes.

I printed the words to the first verse on a little vellum, as I liked the stippled colour and didn't want to mask it off too much.  This was stuck down and edged with a black acrylic paint pen.

On the other side, I hand journalled the chorus, using a black gel pen and then another 'Painter' pen in white for the word 'shining'.  Whilst this was still wet, I covered it with glittery embossing powder and dried it off with a heat gun.

 I added a picture of Florence herself, with glittery hands, and stamped on a coppery fairy image - this didn't come out too well but that's ok.

It's very basic but it makes me smile :)


  1. Very 1960s psychedelic! I like it.

  2. Absolutely fabulous arty effects you created there. We've always fancied a lyric inspired journal, it's on our ever growing to do list.

  3. Loving these pages m'darlin'

    So good to see you creating aagain - and enjoying it too :)
