Paint Party Friday

Hi you all, another week has flown by and it's party time again! Paint party Friday is hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin.
I have been busy this week with journal pages for Carolyn's workshop 'Use Your Words'. This journal spread is for the last lesson we had, laugh and play with fonts.

I masked 'my' head before spraying with my home made inks - made from a mix of food colouring, water, perfect pearls, cheap ink from the Euro shop and a lot of hope and guess work. I let it drip, and splodged some gold ink on to it while it was still wet. Once dry, I stamped the 'filling' for my head, using stamps from Paper Artsy, Artemio and LaBlanche. The words have been stencilled using the 'waste' from a sheet of alphas I used up years ago, it's sometimes quite good to keep things till you need them!









The other pages which I made this week can be seen here.

Here's wishing you all a good day, take care, have fun, and thanks for visiting!

  30. Wow, Valerie, what wild, wonderful, warm colors! Your pages here and on the other place you linked to are just fantastic. Your technique sounds so much fun and really potentially very messy. I don't think I'll try this in my temporary art place (my dining room with the white Chinese rug). But I might do it upstairs in my art room. My knee is getting better with the physical therapy so I'll be back up there soon.
