Friday is party time

Hi you all, another week is over and it's time for Paint Party Friday again, hosted as always by Eva and Kristin. I have made a spread in my giant journal again, which I am also linking to Piarom's 'Mix it monthly' challenge 'Vintage meets Picasso'.
I had a lot of fun painting, collaging, stamping, stenciling and doodling here. I did the background with yellow and purple, and added in some blue here and there to fill the gaps. The ladies who are floating around have been stenciled using color-box ink in peonie, and I have partly outlined them with a gel-pen, leaving other parts to let them melt into the background. I put 'my' head into the left corner, and beautified it with eyes and a mouth from an advert. The images were black and white, so I was able to colour them as I wanted. The legs, shoes and painty hands are all from different adverts, mixed with parts of Conny's 'Picasso'. The butterflies were cut with an X-cut punch, and the quote is from Harlan Edison. I know a lot of people don't like him, but I do, although he is rather impossible sometimes....I had great fun doodling the patterns and  flowers, and adding in lines and squares at different places. As this also has a lot of numbers on it (CWS stencil) I am also linking to Dawn's Journal Journeys where the theme this month is numbers.







I put the eyes on the bosom because I know a lot of men like to look women in the eyes....




Have a great day, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  3. Top marks for this one, Valerie, Picasso would be jealous. There is so much here to comment on, I hardly know where to start - what about the patterned stockings, the jaggy mouth, the eyes on the boobs, the flowers, and the figure on the right hand page is priceless.

  4. Valerie, deine Seiten sind einfach traumhaft schön geworden! Sheila hat recht, Picasso wäre neidisch!
    Mir gefällt wirlich alles an diesen Seiten, aber ganz besonders die Silhouetten. Darf ich fragen wie diese Stencils heißen, bzw. von welchem Hersteller sie sind?

    Was ich auch total klasse finde sind die in Farbe gebadeten Hände, die sind klasse und passen wunderbar in dein Werk!

    Alles in allem eine ganz tolle Kombi!

  18. More great journal pages - they just get better and more fun. Love the sewn on lips, the eyes on breasts (you are so right about Men, perhaps God should have put them there in the first place!) - patterned stockings and beautiful legs with those shoes (drool) - call them "my settin' shoes' now. Thoroughly enjoyed your pages - and the giant journal is such a great idea. hugs, Donna
