Wednesday so I thought I would share my take on the last few weeks. I'll start with my favorite, the most recent.
There is so much I love about this page: the color combo of cobalt teal and quinacridone nickel azo gold, mixing in the white with my finger, the peeks of book text and black numbers from the layers, and the addition of pencil around the circles and the raised text.
I also love when something doesn't work but I find a way to make it even better! In this case, I didn't have the rub-on sticky words but had the foil. So I tried to use sticky embossing powder and a word stamp but I couldn't read the word. I found that the foil stuck to the painted surface because it was still a bit sticky so I used the end of my paintbrush and scribbled some words and lines through the gold foil and it stayed put!
This is the week when Donna used the Poppy napkins. Obviously, I didn't have any flowery napkins, but I did have lots of gel plated deli paper. I picked a black and white geometric pattern and used Seth Apter stencils for the words and outlined them with black pencil. Love the lines at the bottom.
I used another gel print on this page. I actually had some of that bleeding tissue and had not used it yet, so that was fun! My favorite thing is the animal on the dictionary page I used. It's called a Gnu-a large African antelope. :)
When I saw the blue dripping, I thought about water and how much I love the ocean. I had some of those sticky rub-ons in ocean shapes but no words so I went with that and hand wrote the quote.
I call this one the "Hot Mess" page and with any luck, Donna will have us redo one like last year. I do like the quote, "Time flies. It's up to you to be the navigator."
Thanks for visiting my blog today. I love comments so don't be shy!
