FEELING GILTY journal page - copyright Susie Jefferson

You'll have to excuse the pun, I couldn't resist!

Closeup of the left page
I've used a huge dandelion head stamp and gesso to create a resist pattern, then oversprayed with Glimmer Mist, Ranger dyes... every spray in the house, almost. Once these dried, I went back in with more stamping using acrylic paints, and finally Indigo Blu Flitter Glue and gilding flakes. Hence the title 'Feeling GILTY' (geddit? yes? trying to be witty here...)

Side view, showing the Feeling Gilty titling - written with a metallic pen and black drop shadowing.

I'm calling it Feeling Gilty (referencing the gold foiling and the gold lettering) and can truthfully say there isn't a colour that I don't like.
Titling written with India ink and a dip pen.

Although I did have a problem with pink at first, as it's been a colour right outside of my comfort zone. Which you'll have noticed I have now got over, lol.

Hope you like it!


  1. HPS!

    And what makes you think that this journal is not special? In fact it is awesome! All right? :o)


  2. This is so rich looking with nice depth of color. The muted background makes the gold really pop. Sending you sunshine from Seattle!

  3. Hi Susie,
    what a gorgeous creation. I've been feeling guilty lately too. Pink Saturday rolls around and I remember that I haven't any pink to share.

    It's been very hot here in the States, that rainy and cold day sound heaven to me. I'll have a cup of tea please.

    Happy weekend.


  4. Hi Susie,

    I don't know if my first comment went thru. So, I'll try again.

    I love your creation, it's beautiful. Journal pages really speak to my heart. I've been feeling guilty too, Saturday rolls around and I remember I haven't any pink to share.

    Your cold and rainy days sounds pretty good to me. It's been quite hot in the States. How about a cup of tea by the fire?
