More and more layers on watercolor paper.
I found this saying and decided it needed to be added to my page.
I had the background for several days....just needed something in the middle to state something profound....ha!
Here is a corner of the page.
Always ready to try something new. And usually my kids or grandkids guide me along the way.
That's my life in a NUTSHELL.
The numerous layers of color were painted, stamped, sprayed, and colored with watercolor crayons.
Then I added the letters and outlined in white marker.
They didn't show up very well until I added the white outlining.
The 5 in the bottom is a Bingo stencil, like the BING at the top from Balzer Designs and The Crafter's Workshop. They are added with Distress Inks.
The Barn Door Distress Marker over several layers of watercolor are show up differently all around the page.
This is the 2 page layout in the Journal.
If you look closely in the upper right hand corner in the background, you can see the upside-down 4 of the wood mounted stamp from Tim that started the whole collage.
Here you can see just one stage of the layering of the page.
Numbers have always been one of my favorite things to doodle.
The old foam stamp added on the left is outlined with white to make it pop. (This pic was taken under an Ott light at night, and made the Coffee Archival Ink look black...yes, I'm a nightowl!)
I LOVE how the Chickenwire Stencil came out with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and a touch of Chipped Sapphire to shadow.
It's freezing here today. But the sun is shining.
Tax day with Anita is on my schedule for the afternoon.
Just glad I live in the USA.
