Hello friends and visitors! It's been a hectic month for me, and I have another coming up, so my posts will be rather sporadic. Thank you for your recent visits and comments. They mean the world to me, and I hope to repay the visit as soon as possible.
Today I have a journal page spread in bright colors, something I rarely do. I am participating in a round robin journal group, where we each pick two colors to work with. One of my round robinmates chose pink and orange--not exactly my go to colors.
Lot's of background texture created with layers of medical gauze pads, some vintage foreign book page strips, and then paste through stencils. I had a ton of medical gauze pads in my stash, and I just pulled them apart to give some great checked backgrounds.
Sprays, stamping, and some textiles for more texture. Then I added some more stenciling.
Some long forgotten felt flowers and 'jewels' were perfect for the color theme. I just couldn't take that bling, so I toned them down with gesso. I added some rub ons, clippings from my stash, and a few labels from my never used label maker to convey my message. And finally some doodling for movement and impact.
And there's the 'openings' at the end of the binding strings. SOOO out of my comfort zone, but so much fun!
