My Garden and Other Pages
I started this page with a piece of gelli printed paper. The shapes on the right were a big rectangular piece. Then I added the turquoise and red paint and the rest evolved as pages often due.
I bought myself a Dylusions Art Journal awhile back and had not used it yet. I thought I would try some spray inks in it. The paper is supposed to be good for that. So I sprayed through a stencil, some pink, yellow, orange and red dylusion inks. Then I thought what to do next. I painted around the stencil with black gesso. Black gesso makes such a nice surface for writing on. I added the silhouette which I cut out of red cardstock. I looked through my stash of collage items for the rest of the page. the I added some journaling. My gelli roll white pen just flowed over the black gessoed surface. It made the finishing touches on the page such fun.
Are you often surprised on how a page turns out? I always seem to get to a point where I don't like what I have done but sticking with it always brings me out the other end to a sense of satisfaction. That is how this page went.
