What a challenge 2020 was this is the only project I completed since April following anonline tutorial by Shawn Petite.
It turned out different as I used texture paste through a Stamperia stencil and gold metallic lustre creme and one of my flower bases lower papers showed through so I made a focal point top right and stencilled the word Hope - which continues to be my word for 2021.
Here's hoping 2021 will be a happier, brighter and peaceful year although it sure hasn't started that way yet !!
Take care stay safe and well and be gentle to yourself xxx
It is fun to be challenged - it is years since I followed a sketch but the current Paperbabe Challenge is a sketch!!
I love all thing Alice so after thinking and playing with ideas I came up with this journal page - inspired in kind by a trip a couple of of years ago Alice Underground - which was a truly memorable day!!
The theatre company have twists in the tale and I decided to have the same in my page.
I used a page from an old book - the Dodo Race, mounted on a used brown envelope (recyling)
The lady image and background are digital - the image I coloured with copics love the quote and I think it is very apt for all of Alice!!The background I altered with acrylic paints / glaze / splatters.
The entwined circles / bubbles are a sizzix die cut - I used them to also highlight some of the book text.
Had a lot of fun making my page and enjoying the processes
I enjoyed this technique and made time for journaling using the technique with images from Bee Crafty stamps and quotes from Visible Image using TH Distress Inks and Versafine Black onyx Ink . I made the stencil myself using 2 hole punches.
as you can see the poor light makes the page so dull :(
Luckily today the sunshine is out so I took a much better pic out in the garden :)
I like the way the White DI acts as a resist to the black ink when I stamped images over the Bokeh back ground.
