This art journal page started
with two sheets of 6 x 6 paper from the Farmhouse Fair Skies Paper Pad... both of which I really didn't like and a piece of old dictionary paper. I tore them in strips, glued them to my page and gave it the once over with watered-down gesso.
I scraped on a little heavy-
weight gesso. Getting out the molding paste, I applied a layer using Crafters Workshop Tile Texture stencil. I then tinted some of the paste with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and put it down using CW Art Is stencil. I then sponged Brushed Corduroy around the page. Now my background was ready for some toppings.
I went through my scraps
and found a nice piece of My Minds Eye Heirloom and what was left of the dictionary paper I had used on the background. I sewed these together on my machine. I pulled a torn sheet of copy paper out of the trash can and cut a doily using the Alterations die... Distressed Doily. I sprayed it with Lindy's Starburst Clam Bake Beige.
A layer of Prima Music
Sheet resist canvas distressed with Brushed Corduroy, a chipboard piece from the Fair Skies collection, a Graphic 45 Staples sticker butterfly, a heart cut from the My Minds Eye Heirloom collection and a rose trio applique. The banner sticker is from the Fair Skies collection topped with Recollections pearls. The sentiment is from the Idea-ology Seasonal Chitchat stickers pad. The lace, twine, seam binding and scrap of the French Lace paper doily are from my stash.
I trust you had a
relaxing weekend and are ready for another Monday. We awoke to the ground covered again with snow, but the day turned out quite beautiful and tonight we are back to a bare lawn and road.
Thanks for stopping by!
