Sharing my journal pages in Jenny's Journal - the last one for this round - can't believe the journals are making their way home to everyone - it has been so much fun an can't wait for the next round to start!
I started by adding some gesso to the page to give it a base and then added dobs of watercolour paint which I spritzed with water and then "smooshed" around with a baby wipe!
I added some paper doileys around the edges.
Sprayed some black Dylusions ink - wanted to stay with a red/white/black/gold theme for the pages.
Splattered some gold paint over the pages with a large paint brush and edged the border with the brush to use the excess paint as well.
I used collage gals by Art Tea Life - of course - my favourite store as I have mentioned before LOL!!! 12 Dancing Princesses - LOTS of fussy cutting!!!!!
I thought they should have little gold tiaras being princesses so I punched little gold crowns to add.
Started arranging them and gluing them to the page along with some gold washi as "platforms" for them to stand on.
I printed the wording on gold paper and added to the tops of the pages.
So much fun creating this page even with all the fussy cutting and sticking on!!!
