Journal 52 week 20

 "Create a page inspired by a book you read. It can be the last book you read or a favorite book."
This is this week's prompt for Journal 52, and being a person that has read many, many, many, and a couple more, books I could not pick a "favorite" book.  Nor could I pick a specific one that has really"inspired" me.  I did just finish "The Son of Neptune" by Rick Riordan, but, well, it wasn't where my MOJO wanted to go....LOL

So this is where my MOJO took me, a little trip down memory lane. After gluing torn book pages down I sprits and sprayed some inks. ( much too bright) then a quick, thin wash of Gesso brought the colors to a more workable stage. A few tugs and rubs got the edges to curl and tear.  I drew the bottom book boarder then washed the books with thinned down Gelato colors and just wrote the titles on the books.  I created the "Once Upon A Time" book with card stock and stickers, then added a swirly!  WA-LA! a finished page that I like.  Oh yes, I do also follow the tv series of "Once Upon A Time" too......LOL

Thanks for stopping by, let me know you were here.

  1. I have no idea why I have so much glitter, but have a ton and most will never be used. Tim's glitter is plastic, so not as elegant, but then it does not fly all over the place. I personally find other glitter a health risk in my opinion! Now on to your journal page - love it! The torn pages and colors look so amazing and the outlines are brilliant! I sure hope you have a great Memorial Weekend and I bet you will be camping?

  2. Great page. Don't all good stories start with "once upon a time"?

  6. I stopped by the day you posted this, but couldn't stay on the internet. It crashed about the time I was getting ready to leave a comment.

    I really like your take on this challenge entry, and I'm also a BIG fan of Once Upon a Time. Now I'm off to read your message.
