We recycle most of our packing so had to root in the recycle bin. Toothpaste, nicotine patches and fly shoes reflects my week. Obviously the colour did not inspire me but the items did and are part of my hidden journalling.I am on week 4 of stopping smoking, the only me packaging is basics as I am allergic to anything with perfume, essential oils, citrus and too many more so no pampering products for me. The pampering was linked to the Fly box as it was my birthday this week and I was spoilt by my family.
I began by using modelling paste I saw in Lidl and spread it with my fingers over a double page leaving space in the middle. I then took a heat gun to the paste and got wonderful bubble texture.
I then journalled in an ever decreasing circle in the middle of the page and traced round the fly on the shoe box using Posca pens and acetate. I coloured the fly with alcohol inks and stuck it over my journalling.
I covered this with scrap paper and sprayed two colours of dylusion inks over the top.
Then it was my fingers and teal, yellow and white acrylic paint.
It was too boring at this point so I used the Birds on the Wire Stamps from Dylusions to cover the space. Because the background was so textured this gave an interesting effect with the stamps. Finally I wrote the word fly all round the border. I seem to have made a very green page again... Thanks for dropping by, I need to Fly now.
