1 – Spray Stix2 inks onto a Stix@ heat resistant craft mat. Using Stix2 white linen card, place the card over the sprayed ink. Using the palm of your hand, press down on the card. For a more intense colour smooth over the back of the card again using your hand. Leave to dry or speed up the process using a heat gun.

2 – Once dry, trim the background to 10.5 x 20.5 cm for a Standard journal insert page.

3 – Clean the mat then place the coloured background onto the mat. Using WOW opaque Bright white embossing powder, sprinkle a small amount over the background (same size as transfer foil). Now place a piece of Stix2 silver transfer foil, shiny side up, over the embossing powder. Next place a piece of Stix2 parchment paper over the foil. Using a heated Stix2 craft iron, go over the background. Leave to cool then peel the foil off. Repeat to create effect on other parts of the background.

4 – Die cut 3 stitched edge clouds from Lawn Fawn from white card then trim to size. Using a Prima glue pen, place one cloud edge at the top of the background and then layer two at the bottom.

5 – Die cut DREAM BIG text from Turquoise card using Lawn Fawns alphabet dies. Using Stix2, 2 in 1 glue pen fix the text just below the clouds at the top.

6 – Die cut an air balloon using Sizzix dies from Stix2 tinted orange and yellow card. Again using the glue pen, fix the balloon to the bottom right of the layout.

7 – Finally fix your page to your journal page using double sided tape.
