Visual Journey #13

Harmony and Symphony

Can you believe the thirteenth post for my Visual Journey means we are a quarter of the way through the year - it doesn't bear thinking about does it????

Today I have used black, white and kraft as my colour palette. It all came about when I decided to use some Tim stamps to create some extra large washi tape using a roll of sticky backed parcel tape. To provide some depth to it I painted in some of the shapes and parts of numbers with a white posca pen. I then stuck it across the pages adding a couple of words left from a project and workshop I did last year and some scraps of brown wrapping paper (there's a theme going on here isn't there?)

Over this I scraped some white acrylic paint using an old plastic card.

Next came some texture stamping using black archival ink so that it is permanent and wont react with any further layers I might add.

Using Wendy Vecchi's black texture paste and a stencil I added some writing and I used what was left on the stencil and palette knife with a babywipe to start adding black shadows. (I knew I could lighten this with white paint again later if I needed to).

I left these layers to thoroughly dry whilst I collected some collage scraps and embellishments for the next stage. Once I was away with gathering and gluing I forgot to take any more photos until it was finished. But I used scraps of designer papers, borders, snippets, washi tape etc and when it was all securely glued to the page I covered the gorgeous found relative photo and splattered some walnut crystal ink.

 I hope your week is going well and that you are getting some time to free journal.
