Welcome To my Visual Journey #24 post, a quickie today as I have another post coming up later with a canvas and some process steps, so keeping this one simple here we go -
Openig a double page I gessoed it with a fairly thin coat and when dry I used the DecoArt media acrylics through two Tim stencils. Although I picked this range out of the box I in fact only used six of them.
I added tissue tapes, stamping and chose some glimmer mists to create colour.
Top Tip - when my glimmer mists are almost empty I add distress ink reinkers with perfect pearls to custom make my own colours similar to what was in the bottle.
I have a box on my shelf that is labelled vintage images, many of them are digital images I have collected over the years, most of them were free from places like the Graphics Fairy. These steampunk ones just called to be used when I saw them.....
.... I added some on both pages and also found a little quote and chose some chit chat stickers to make up another.
"Wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving."
"Each day is different".
I am hoping it will stay dry on the Isle of Wight as we are going to the Rock Festival. Off early tomorrow morning to get the ferry and home the early hours of Monday morning. I am looking forward to seeing Fleetwood Mac, I have seen them in concert but I am sure they will be fabulous on an open air stage with all the lights. No camping for us we have booked a B&B so we will be able to have nice warm showers and a cooked breakfast every day. I hope you are having a great week and enjoy the weekend ahead - anything good planned?
Take care - see you later this morning with a special post for today.
