Art Journal Friends

Week 6 and our prompt at UK Stampers - set by the inspiring Efemera who has a stunning quilt on her blog -was Friends  and we had to include a who/when/where; a story and a stencil/mask. This page has layers and layers. I began with acrylic paint and then I used the the TH Timepieces mask with Rangers Pearl dabber. When it was dry I added some pieces of dictionary papers and crackle accents. At this point I sprayed it with Dylusions Jade, Sky Blue and Lime Green inks. I then added the journalling. I almost kept it without text as I loved it as it was but I still love it now.
stage one paint, masks and pearl dabbers then the crackle accents

luscious inks

The journalling is all about one of oldest friends Anne. We met in Primary five and shared a love of horse riding lessons. Our friendship meant many shared adventures and the story hints about our adventures one new year when we were outrageous and hungover and expected to eat a special dinner with her parents. Very thirsty we drank lots of acidic orange juice and sat down to a dinner of pheasant. I think we both managed about one mouthful before turning green and having to leave the room - oh to be 17 again!
