A Week Of Journaling
This started out as a gelli print page. I marked the circles and painted around them. Then added journaling. This was the first time I made a gelli print right into my journal. I like pulling out just part of the designs. Its a fun way to tackle a page when you don't know what to do with the background.
I worked on this page in a similar way only with rectangles. Then on the painted out parts I added maps pieces. I used distress stain to color the maps a little. Then drew the hand and some words about community. I did it in 21 Secrets class that was really fun.
This page has oil pastels in the rectangles and scraps of gelli printed papers adde on top and in other spots. There were several layers of color in the oil pastel areas which I then scratched through with a pointy tool. That was fun as it exposed other colors.
This one was a spray ink page background. I drew the face on top with marker and then used sennelier oil pastels on the face. She definitely is a purple lady. This one is for you Janet.
This on is a take off on the idea of a tree ring. I saw this on the net somewhere just don't remember where. It was fun to do but the next time I might plan out what I am gong to write before I begin.
