For the last few days I have been wanting to do 'something else'. So today I did do something else. I made an art journal in my Moleskine journal and didn't use a stamp as a main image. I hope you like this one too !! Please let me know what you think...
This journal was started with gesso, after which I used a stencil and some heavy gel medium to make the pattern. I thought the gel medium would resist the sprays.... not so.
I used 4 Lindy's Stamp gang sprays:
Café au lait
Clam Bake Beige
Blue Hawaiian Blue
Afternoon Delight Denim
I kept spraying, drying and dripping until I was happy with the result. I used some Finnabair stampsand a bottle top to embellish the background and also a stencil from Tim Holtz.
The main image is one of Tim Holtz' Photo Booth photos. I distressed it a little to make it look older.
I used some stuff I had lying around to make a mat for this photo strip. I used some book paper, some fabric and a bit of lace.
Next I stamped the butterflies (Finnabair) on some gessoed book paper and coloured it with the Blue Hawaiian Blue spray. I stapled them here and there.
Lastly I stamped the sentiment (Finnabair) on the edge of some of the same book paper and glued it on the opposite page, finishing it off with some more butterflies and a date stamp.
Thank you so much for stopping by today !
