This week's Journal page. I did a background page with gelli plate and acrylics. Then I stamped and stenciled over it. I created the girl's dress with left over paint smeared napkins and adhered her to the page. The flowers were doodled using stabilo marker and white gelly roll pen.
"It is by acts and not by ideas alone that we should live each day."
The page is rich in texture with layers of paint, gesso and paper collage added to it.
Again the quote is a reminder to myself. Everyday my head is weighed down by a dozen ideas, especially creative ones but sadly most of them never see the light as I don't work around them on a daily basis. I think it is so difficult to set goals to our own self .
I also wanted to share the journals that I made last week.
Two "No Sew" Handmade Journals and two saddle stitched ones.
See the pretty purple journal. The cover is a handmade paper that I bought from this year's trip to India. I'm confused whether to leave the cover like that or to do more work on it. Hmm, time will tell
The colorful one is a saddle stitched journal to jot down my everyday thoughts... The cover is a collage work from so many left over scraps that I had in my never ending stash.
More lovely handmade papers-:)
Wishing you all a creative weekend
