Visual Journey #14

As these pages began to emerge the one word that kept popping into my head was 'Contrasts', so thats what these pages have been called.

Using more of my scraps I glued strips of papers to the pages, stamped using black archival ink and then scraped white acrylic paint over making it quite thick in places. I left this to dry overnight.

The next morning I painted with babywipes adding phthalo blue and transparent yellow iron oxide DecoArt media fluid acrylics to give me my colour base.

I decided what images I wanted to use and this was where the contrasts seemed to come in with the lovely warm colours contrasted to the quite austere lady in the photograph and the very shabby butterfly.

I really do seem to have a theme of butterflies developing in this journal.

I still don't seem to be building any particular mixed media/collage style. I think my pages are all so very different.

Thanks for popping by today and if you are following my weekly Visual Journal posts I hope you are enjoying seeing my pages as much as I am enjoying making them.

If you are creating journal pages then please link them underneath this post and if you want to share everyone who links here with others around the world please collect this code and add to your post.
