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!!
