Journal page with Mixed Media

While straightening up "Betsy" I thought "Why am I keeping hoarding all this stuff to use for a project to give away?"  I have ended up with a lot of grunge board letters, numbers and shapes, and I am not THAT crazy about the stuff!  It has to be painted or Gesso'd to add any color.  So I grabbed one of my journals and started gluing things down the side of the page.  After getting a coat of Gesso on it all I decided I really like all the white, so I went over it with white acrylic paint.

Okay, white is great, but it did need a punch of color, and my GD's picture (or a copy of it) was floating on my inspiration wall, right behind my lap top.  White background with her being the only color.....perfect!  After I added Dani's picture I pulled out some other hoarder pieces, painted them white and added them.  It really felt GOOD to be just using this stuff.......LOL

This page is more like what I would do on a canvas, then give to the parents, BUT I really think Grandma deserves to put them in her journal!!  With three more GK, I'm sure there will be more to come (big grin)

Thanks for stopping by, please let me know you were here!!
