I hope you are having a good week. Mine is going fine.
For this spread in my 6×6 journal I started with a page that had some horrible dark green paint on it and the opposite page had dabs of pink ink. Not a great combination! I collaged copies of old maps and papers from the Papermania Bookprint collection onto the pages. I coloured them with Inktense blocks and water. Where I had used Mod Podge to stick the papers down it acted as a resist to the colour – a nice effect. I finger painted the whole spread with an ‘eggyolk’ yellow acrylic paint and then added the circles by stamping brown acrylic paint using bottle caps. I thought it needed some contrast so I stencilled blue acrylic paint through punchinella and a big dot stencil. Finally I added the words using brown Stazon and a set of tiny letters I purchased at Hobbycraft a while ago.
Making the spread was a bit of a journey, I had no idea where I was going with it when I started and I wasn’t sure where I was when I finished. It was good fun though 🙂
Enjoy the rest of your week.
