…and I’m constantly making new discoveries

discoveriesI had lots of fun making this journal page that still hasn’t made it into the journal (more on that later).  I made the background by brayering paints and then stamping images from Tim Holtz.  At the workshop with Claudia, she said to always place things on top of other things so that it doesn’t look like stuff just fell there by accident.  I’d never thought of that before, but it makes a lot of sense and I think a lot of difference!  Hence, the cheesecloth from under the mdf heart with the cool rusty wings (I just had to have them probably close to 18 months ago and finally used one from the pack of 3! Tell me I’m not alone in that.)  I also added a lush dazzler thingy from Creative Expressions. The piece of greyboard was painted in quin magenta which is so lush!  The flourish corner has Cosmic Shimmer Pearl glue on it.  The pearl stuff picks up a bit of the burnt edges (the mdf is cut with a laser at 3000C) and adds a bit of colour, a tip I picked up from Johnathon Lockwood.  The sentiment, from Tim Holtz, is so apropos because the flourish was done for another project and ended up on top the sentiment in the chaos of my desk!  That same chaos reigns supreme in the rest of my space.  I can’t find my journal … the irony is not lost on me! 😉Toad & Magic
