Round 6 - ART NOUVEAU
My journal has 3 signatures and is A5 size. I made the cover by recycling some cardboard and covering it with napkins, tissue paper and 50/50 diluted PVA. Below is the journal and the inside back and front.
I also used Archival ink pads.
I added the title and a picture that I had saved to my PC.
I printed the contract on paper that I had adhered a napkin to. My first page has a pic from the Graphics Fairy and some rosette trim that I thought suited the page. I left the image B/W as I couldn't decide whether to colour it or not!! The background is gesso and archival ink.
I put the mailing order on the inside back cover and did the opposite page with a collage of napkin paper and embossed card with some cloth strips and fibers. Used up some washi tape around the names.
My main spread is below and I'm not sure that I like the metal pieces that I added to it?? something is not quite right to my eye!! I used 2 different napkins and added some stamping and highlighting etc with watercolour crayons. Also added some sponged ink here and there.
