Hello Crafty peeps…
A cool welcome to all of you…yes, it’s been raining past couple of days and things around me are fresh and colorful!
Today I have a journal page that reflects the colorful side of me (wink)! I love this quote from paper Artsy and decided to make this the focal point…am sure all artists will agree with this!
I have colored the page with Faber Castell Gelatos Bubble gum, Orange Soda, Red Cherry, Boysenberry and Limoncello…that’s a riot of colors I know…love the bright shades!
Once the colors are blended I created textures with stencils and gelatos in red and blue. I also used texture paste and some random stamping. It was all about colors, textures and layers in the page..played to my hearts content.
The left top side, I created a tear and inserted some lovely textured handmade paper which feels like leather. There is also a bit of net and lace peeking there all held together with a zipper!
The focal point is a ornate die cut which had the TCW brick texture and colored with DI antique linen. I have tried the gesso resist technique here and so the bricks still remain white! Beneath is the quote from PA and then comes layers of texture using paper scraps, lace, woven mat, burlap all raised up with foam dots!
I wanted it all on this page! Which is why the flowers are just plain simple white. Recently I created a whole lot of flowers using the Modge mold and Plaster of Paris and am loving these white ones…you would have seem them in my previous projects too!
I have edged the page with red dry pastel and then with black. The ornate corners are using TCW stencils and texture paste. There is also some faux stitching in white and some color splats too which bring the whole thing together.
I have to give credit to the following mood boards and challenges that inspired me with this riot of colors…
