I am working on a couple of art journal spreads so I thought I would upload photos to show the process as I work on it. UPDATE: FINISHED!
I am using additional pages for my large Dylusions journal. These come in a pack with buff, kraft and black pages and some tape to fix them into your journal. I wanted to work on them separately before I affixed them to the journal. These first two pages have been gessoed and then I used some of Finnabair’s Flutter tissue paper, selecting the parts of the design I wanted to use in the journal, and stuck them down with Distress Collage paste.
Then I used Paper Texture Paste with a Tim Holtz Cogs stencil on the first spread. Here’s a close up of what the paper paste looks like when it is dry – it really is awesome stuff!
I applied some of Finnabair’s Liquid Acrylics in Violet and Magenta, spraying it with water and letting it run down the page.
This is another page that I let sit for a while until it told me what it wanted to be. Turns out it wanted to be this…
Here are some close ups
Left hand page with many tattered butterflies cut from Prima papers.
Right hand page with Prima diecut mini butterflies (Sizzix/Prima Winged Beauties die), Prima Princess stamp, and Shutter die from Waffle Flower. Window sill made from leftovers and sentiment from Finnabair.
