Journal Pages

Hi you all! I just discovered to my horror that it's already Thursday evening, and somehow I was convinced it was Wednesday - where did the week go? I have been busy crafting this week - mostly crazy clocks! - and did not find much time for painting. But I did make these journal pages. I used a piece of crumpled tissue paper while spraying some paper flowers this week, and I found the tissue much nicer than the flowers! I gessoed my paper, tore the tissue in half , and smoothed it over the wet paint. I added a bit more paint and spray round about, did a bit of dripology, and added a photo also printed onto tissue. The flourish, lace and flowers were in the heap of stuff on my table. I used a Sizzix die-cut waste to add 'Live' with a white Edding paint marker. I like the uneven texture of the crumpled tissue. I wrote 'Life is measured in moments' on the left hand side, but it is hard to see here as the pages were still curling after being painted. I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin, who are also organising an Auction in aid of Sandy Hook.





I am also linking to Art Journal Journey, where the theme this month is 'special moments'.

Have a good weekend, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  15. Mensch Valerie..das sieht wieder so schön aus!
    Ich trau mich ja immer noch nicht auf Seidenpapier zu drucken... naja bei uns hat mein Mann die Oberhand über den Drucker in seinem Büro und ich hab ihm zwar schon mal erklärt, wie ich das machen will- aber er hat glaub ich Angst um seinen Drucker..
    muss ich mal einen guten MOMENT abwarten um ihm das zu verklickern...lol!

    Danke dass Du noch so eine schöne Doppel-Seite für
    ART-JOURNAL-JOURNEY
    gemacht hast!


    TRAUM!

    lg und ein schönes Wochenend
