I realized I posted my "entry" for Inspiration Wednesday a little early (technically my entry was from 9-6-2010 and the week didn't start until 9-8-2010... so... DARN... I just HAD to do another entry in my new art journal! YAY! (Like I needed an excuse - I'm having so much fun with it I just couldn't wait!)
So here's the next page in my journal....
I had fun playing with my new Tim Holtz foam stamps, made by running the Alterations dies through the c'bug with foam sheets - easy! Did a watercolor background with lots of drippage (actually this had so much water sprayed it's more like RUNNAGE, but despite the terminology... I like it!) Then stamped over the background with the foam stamps. Used some extra jute for the stems - I dyed the stems with a mini mister and some peeled paint distress re-inker. Found a great quote and decided to paint a thin layer of crackle paint over top - just a subtle accent to the quote.
I also did the little inclusion page between the first two main pages:
I sprayed each side with glimmer mist - a really heavy coat to maximize "glimmage" (*is that a new word??? I like it!*), added some tissue tape and some stamps and embellishments. The button on the green page started gold and I hit it with a red paint dabber to give it a little pizzaz.
Here's some additional views of the finished page. Hope you enjoyed - I'm loving it.... in fact just signed up today for a class with Donna Downey in October - can't wait!!!
Have a lovely weekend! See you soon.
