and liv'd but three summer days - three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.” John Keats
Going through one
of my art journals, I discovered that there were still some unfinished pages... ones I had applied excess paint and ink to from another project (I'm sure most of you know what I mean). These two pages both had lime green stenciled ivy vines and random brushed paint. So I pulled out a piece of a torn dress pattern and stamped on a few images...
then glued it on with
a hefty helping of soft gel medium. Heat tool. Using my finger, I put on Titanium White acrylic paint with some dabs of Peeled Paint Distress Stain and a few squirts of water from a mister. Heat tool.
I rubbed Distress Ink pads,
Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage and Rusty Hinge, on my craft mat, misted with water and drug my journal pages through the lovely mass of liquid. Heat tool. More dragging. Heat tool. And once again. Heat tool. Now with a sponge applicator, I rubbed on more Peeled Paint DI.
Now I cut out six butterflies
from a sheet of KaiserCraft Timeless paper called, not surprisingly, "Butterflies" and added them to the mix using the soft gel.
My computer created
quote went on the page in the same fashion. A bit of Black Soot Distress Ink sponged around the perimeter finished off my play time. This page has a botanical flair, don't you think? I love the greens!
