In case you're wondering the bulldog clip helps keep the pages flat and the copy paper under the pages protects my other pages from all the mess I create. At this point I was thinking try and create a more graphic page rather than the usual flowing mess but as you can see below it did not go to plan.
Blurry words, late at night. They read Boldly go through the thin air to destiny. What you ask? I picked these because they reflect something I am going through at the moment. But after sticking them down I didn't like it all... so I covered the entire page with gesso. As I used gesso and distress inks which are water soluable there was a great deal of mixing.
What is the dead rose got to do with my page? It had been in a birthday gift of flowers and I was removing the dead flowers I noticed the colours and wrinkles in this and had to photograph it and I decided I wanted a pink, orangey, purplish page.
Bt adding dylusions orange and hot pink to sections of the page I began to build up layers. I used some square pieces of plastic to create grids. The grids are faint but you can see them.
Once the journalling was added I doodled some shapes and stamped a Lost and Found dress form on both pages and a bunting stamp around the page. At times the bunting is uneven as the page ripples. I had already added some white lines to mimic the lines in the dina stamp. I coloured the words using a paintbrush and dylusions pink and orange and then just randomly swirled all over the page with the brush.
This is a huge step from the original prompt but it is me and I think I am finding my style in this journey. Thanks for dropping by.
