I absolutely LOVE this journal page! I had done a background a while back. I wasn't thrilled with it, but last night I added the face to it and painted the black around it, added some highlight and WOW! Now it's my new fav! Thank to Jule Fei-Ban Balzer I tried this technique and was successful! I owe this page to her daily blog e-mail.
I had SO much fun making this page last night. I used 3 acrylic paints (orange, teal and yellow) and scraped them onto the page with an old credit card. Then used my fingers to smear some of the paint. I then applied some of the same paints to a piece of bubble-wrap and pressed it onto the page in a random fashion. The flowers and stems were from a card-making kit I had made up for a friend who used to babysit so she and the kids could make cards for the parents. The circles that adorn some of the flowers are from a bag of quilling materials I had in my stash of craft goodies. I added some white circles on the dots with a white gel pen and then wrote the message on the stems. If you look closely you'll see the words "DON'T WAIT" on the petals of the large flowers.
My interests vary from paper crafts and card-making to mixed-media/art journaling to making jewelry to photography. The purpose of this blog is to share some of those interests with you.
So glad you stopped by!
