Lisa G G - Working in Deb's 'Inspired by Pinterest' Journal
Lisa J here blogging for Lisa G G!
Lisa has had lots of fun with the wonderful roll out of the NBN, so has had internet troubles. I'm helping out as I have Deb's journal to play in now.
The theme of Deb's journal is 'Inspired by Pinterest', and she's provided everyone with good quality A4 paper to be folded in half, similar to one of the Deconstructed Art Journal swaps we've been doing; only a little bigger! Deb intends to bind all the pages together when she gets them back at the end of the year.
This means you get 3 pages to do! Front, double sized middle, and back.
For the front, Lisa has gone with a heart theme: Never stop loving...
For the middle pages, more hearts. The left hand side is a brick wall made using texture paste through a stencil, with the heart drawn on top. The drips could be in blood... but most likely are paint. :) The right hand side features a musical background with a luscious heart - Dylusions paint I believe, with the saying "Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage..." Too true! The heart is a gorgeous magenta colour.
The rear features more hearts, this time done with watercolour pencils.
This journal has been a great way to try new techniques and mediums!
