Hi. I love how this page came together. I had no clue what direction I was going until it happened. That is always so much fun. I wish the pictures looked half as good as the page. The camera phone does not capture the shimmer and depth of color at all. I used Lyndi Stamp gang sprays on this page.
Here is my newest art journal page. :)
I gesso'd my page first so that the colors wouldn't bleed thru and destroy my previous page. I used Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and some Crafter's Workshop stencils and created some background pattern on the paper. Once dry I started to spray the pages. I layered the colors several time to get the depth and color patterns. The shimmer is amazing. Once I had the colors down I was thinking a mermaid scene first, but then it looked like a satellite image from above and a treasure map came to mind. I pulled out my Dusty Attic skulls and sprayed them with some Tattered Angels. I found this iron on patch that I bought years ago and it was perfect. I punched some hearts and colored them with Distress stains. I used some stamps that I found at a dollar store years ago that had a skull theme to it. Thought it might be useful to start using some of the things I had accumulated over the years. LOL I used some metal embellishments from Michael's. The black lace flower on the skull patch has some mesh draping down the face like a veil. Gives a bit of an ominous feel and that black widow look. The caption below her reads, "Getting in trouble has never been so much fun." LOL
I hope you enjoy this page. I had fun making it. :) Thanks for stopping in.
