We’re still under the weather around here so I didn’t get to work in my journal as much as I wanted this week. Everything seemed to take d-a-y-s instead of hours.
Here’s the pages I created:
I started these pages a few weeks ago but after I watched “Searching for Sugar Man” last weekend they came together for me.
The quote I stamped on a piece of neutral cardstock and then I decided it wasn’t enough so I used some distress stains and white acrylic and washi to make it look a little more colorful.
I stamped the quote on the front of the “flap” and then on inside I put in some journaling about the film and my reaction to it.
The cloud background is an old piece of Bazzill cardstock that I painted using some white acrylic paint and one of Julie Fei-Fan Balzers stencils. I layered the photo of the praying monk (which I clipped from a catalog) on some sheets of 6×6 cardstock and added some washi and a few clips.
This page is just some random photos from February.
The background is actually this:
I worked on it a bit over the week. It’s just some paper from my last journal with spray inks and acrylic paints over it.
In the middle is a bit that I cut out from a sheet of Glitz paper.
I’m going to journal about all the photos and stuff on the next few pages I put into the journal.
And in my tiny painting journal:
Not crazy about how this turned out. The two flowers are stamped- I originally stamped them in silver but as I painted them, the silver just blurred and turned to grey streaks so I tried stamping over it with white acrylic but, of course, it didn’t look crisp.
Oh well, I finished it anyway.
There’s actually a lot of texture on it. At least the colors are kinda spring-y, right?
Thanks, as always, for looking! <3
