What a warm wonderful Sunday this has been, the sun is down now but it is still so nice outside. Time to throw open the windows at night!! There is so much yard work to catch up on and the long days make it nice. This first journal page was a "fun with paint" type of page. I used a brick stencil for the wall, and the most all the paint was applied with pom poms!! I had an evergreen tree stamp I did put paint on then added it to the tree line. Kinda fun to just start dabbing colors of paint here, there and everywhere. I did go back in and make some dot flowers with my stylist. The sentiment is from Graphic 45 "Secret Garden" and the pail of flowers is a picture from a magazine that I thought was so pretty.
While on my trip I found a poem in one of those magazine I bought and really liked it and it was written in purple tones!!
So much purple that I got out a swirly stamp and added it here and there,too dark.... so I went over them with a white gel pen. Everything was getting to be the same color of purple so I rubbed some pink Gelatos and some blue Gelatos here and there to break up
that horrid purple I had going on. I found a lavender home made paper and tore around the edges to put the poem on. I did darken the edges to make it pop a little better. A chip board leafy, swirly thing ( yes I am using BIG technical words in this post...LOL) was added to the bottom corner, just to add some balance. NOT one of my favorite pages, but at least I feel like it is a finished page now. Purple is just hard for me to work with, and I do like the color.....some what. I know the photo colors are exactly like I have described them, but the flash changed things and I was shooting these pictures in the trailer with the journal propped up on the bedroom steps.....LOL
So now it is off to the shower and the end of my Sunday. A whole new list of things to accomplish for tomorrow.
There will be a new DT post tomorrow so I do hope you will come back and take a look.
Krisha who can't stop yawning........
