Hi you all! Last week there were no leaves on the trees, which wasn't surprising considering how cold it was. But today I saw them - little green leaves shooting on the branches, a wonderful sight after such a long winter!
I have made some more journal pages. The background has been painted with blue and gold metallics, and then sprayed with some blue and green inks. When it was dry, I stamped the background using my fave script stamp in blue, and embossed it with perfect pearls gold. You need the light on it to see it, but it is there. It gives a lovely shimmery and rather floaty look to the background. I also used my diamond stamp to add some patterning along the sides.
Then I used a stencil to ink in the ivy leaves with forest moss. For the main image I chose a 'photo' of a little girl, stamped with a scrollswork image onto glossy, cream coloured paper to make it look like a real photo. I matted the photo with scraps of old book pages and hand-written pieces. I added some vintage floral scraps and some lace, and then some blue rub-ons to frame the image. The text has been written using a 'stencil' made from the waste of a sheet of alphas - I like this size. I used a grey-blue felt-tip and edged it with a gold gel-pen.
I am linking to the following challenges:
And here is another sneak-peek at my WIP....more to follow.
Nearly forgot - I was chosen for the Top 5 for the recycling challenge at TIOT - woohoo!
Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
