My Art Deco Journal

This is my double page spread.
I used fabric (from a top that someone had given to me) as the background.
I used spray adhesive to stick it to the page. I had already gessoed the page first as I wasn't sure what I was going to do! I also added some Pixie Powder to diluted PVA glue and brushed that over the gesso after it had dried. This can be seen in the right corner.I printed out some images and took ages to decide where they should be. I wanted the black and white image to be visible so I had to play around with the placement of the fabric. The neckline of the top had a black band and this worked really well to highlight the girl in the bottom right of the spread. I added the shiny gold card circles and punched corner shapes to make this a feature. I finally decided where everything should go and I'h happy with the end result.
I have decided to use this book that my Mum bought me about 30 years ago.
It is an address book with beautiful Art Deco prints throughout....they are all still in the book.
I have removed some of the address pages and glued some together.
There is a note saying that you may need to gesso the surface first.
This is what the address pages look like.
I love the black & white images.
The full page prints are in colour.
