Journal page - July 5

[Click on picture to enlarge]

This page was started at the same time as the previous "grateful" page; just finished today.

This was an experimental page. First I just wrote random things. Then I stuck pieces of book pages down with Golden Soft Gel Medium, let it set a few minutes and then pulled the pages off. This left the print but not the paper (pretend it's not backwards to read). :)  And, what the heck, I glued a couple pieces of book page here and there. I sprayed the page with Dylusions and blotted. I'm looking through my 'stuff' and spot a small sample bottle of Golden Coarse Pumice Gel so I thought I'd try that with a stencil. The pumice texture is gray, so I sprayed the page again with Dylusions spray, squirted it with water and let it run. Man that Coarse Pumice Gel really absorbs the colors well. After the spraying, I thought the sandy stenciled blobs looked a bit like leaves and maybe flowers, so I decided to paint a fairy girl underneath them. The bottom part of the picture is a little bit blurrier than the real thing.

Little bit of art journaling

I just doodled this background, then needed something to put on it. The girl started as a flesh colored oval with two brown spots for the eyes, then the nose...and mouth....and well, this is how she turned out. I didn't reference any picture, just started playing and a girl was born. lol  (Note: In 'real' life the word "grateful" is more black than it appears in the picture. Wonder why?) It could be better, but what the heck. It's just doodling. :)

Mini Alphabetica Box

My plan is to use this box for smaller ephemera and items cut from magazines or books. Quick access. I'm decorating each folder with something pertaining to that letter. This is a mini version of Dede (Inkwell)'s Alphabetica box.
