My spread in Pam's Words of Wisdom Journal

First of all I must apologise for being so late with blogging...Life is a bit hard at the moment...and to prove that, I joined the Upside Down Club. Sorry Pam - my spread is the wrong way up!!
I did the background first with gesso and napkins and let that dry. I then added some Pixie Powders and spread them around with diluted PVA. I covered the doubled page spread with cling wrap and let it dry. Next I added some Archival Ink in Orange Blossom...I just rubbed the pad directly over the background.. I had decided on the quote and printed it out on purple paper. I pondered over the purple for about a week!! I had also decided on the Dyan Reavely stencil to do the girl...I traced the outline onto some paper that I had done with napkins,paint and glitter. I also knew that I had  the image of the crayons saved on my pc so I printed them out, coloured them with crayons and cut them out. I added shading with a Distress marker and edged the spread with a red crayon and a black marker.
Hope you like it Pam!!


  1. Love it Roz. So bright and colourful. In my opinion every good art journal should have at least one upside down spread. Great quotes too. Thank you.

  2. Fantastic Roz such a vibrant and happy page with great wisdom in your perfect purple words.

  3. Well done Roz, and the colours look even better in real life! Great spread. :)
