Exotic!! by Pam.
I spent some time pondering whatever I could contribute to Janie's Exotic Art Journal. I had no idea and time was ticking so I just began and played around. My thought turned to exotic dancers, to flashy birds, wonderful flowers, too many thoughts really.
So I just began a background. I stuck down tissue paper, and then used some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays in greens and browns.
Then I thought about leaves. I had some painted papers that resulted from cleaning off my brayer when gelli printing so I stencilled over them with paint and cut out some leaves I searched through my paper napkins for exotics and found some lovely flowers and butterflies. I then had a little tryout after I did some stamping with some home made stamps.
Janie's journal is an A4 landscape layout and I found it difficult to fit into my limited work space. After pasting all my elements down. I outlined them and then stencilled some dots in the red paint to tone in with the rest.
Here are some close ups from around the spread. I hope it fulfills Janie's requirements.
