I had a busy day yesterday, and got a lot done, which was good.
I made another journal page, once again with squares - this theme has many possibilities!
I painted the pages with light brown paint, and cut the dark brown shapes out of paper and glued them on to make the chess board. It was more difficult than I thought to get them in the right size and perspective, but I tried! The chess figures have been printed, fussy cut, and given 2 coats of clear varnish to make them look like polished wood. I rolled them over a pencil to give them depth. For the lettering I used some sheets of leftover alphas. I hate throwing them away, and there are always lots of letters which don't get used up. So this time I mixed the colours, added some white alphas to fill in the gaps, and went round them all with a black gel pen to give them a more unified appearance.
I am linking to AJJ - squares.
That's all for today, take care, have fun, and thanks a lot for coming by!
