Love life

Love life.jpgThe wonderful Marta cut up a doily and used it on one of her fab pages.  Off I went to our local charity/thrift shop and found crochet doilies for 50 cents!  I still didn’t have any stencils when I did this page, so to get texture I closed the book while the gesso was wet and then opened it up again right away.  I rather like the result and will use it again.  I have no idea who the flower stamps are from, but I stamped them on book pages and tinted the page with Prussian blue fluid acrylics.  I also used Prussian blue and phthalo green-blue to colour the page and the doily.

Soul

soul.jpgAnother journal page using DecoArt products.  Turquoise and orange Americana paints, Prussian Blue fluid acrylic, black and white media misters, and a very old Wordsworth stencil.  The rectangles are a bit lighter (more of the lighter turquoise paint than the background) and were edged in Prussian blue.  I’m 100% convinced this is not original idea, but I have no idea where it’s from.
