Another cold and dreary day here, brrrrrr - it can only get better - I hope.
I made some journal pages for she-art at AJJ last week, and now have time to post them. I didn't get round to much this week, as I have been busy knitting, washing, even doing the dreaded H*******K and I*****G! Don't worry, the attack will pass.
The first piece is once again evidently influenced by Halloween.
The background was painted with grey, into which I added colours using pastel chalks. I sprayed some red and purple at the top and let it drip. The floating / flying figures have been stenciled and painted with black. The background colours still show through it. At first I wanted to give it a second coat, but decided I like it the way it is. The skellies have been stamped, as have the bats and spiders' webs, and the kid on the left at the bottom is a die-cut.
The second piece is rather a contrast programme, a double page I made using a photo of my Great Grandmother Rachel and the text 'woman of valour' (Eshet Chayil) from Proverbs 31.
The background has been painted with green and blue, and the patterns in the background have been stencilled and stamped.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin.
Have a good day, take care, and thanks for coming by.
