MIXED MEDIA - 6pages
Last weekend I glued the American flag onto the page. It was a photo of a journal page I had done before, but this time I printed that photo on deli paper. Making a print on deli paper from your copier is a cool technique. Opposite this page is another American flag, albeit not in good condition. I actually tore this page from another journal (from 2013) where I was trying an image transfer. The flag looks like it's had a rough time but sustained. The blue paint chip is called "Bravura". And I also have glass gel beads around the perimeter.
When you flip this page over...
The page on the left has 3 heart shapes on the left side that are cut from pages in a Pottery Barn summer catalog...red, white & blue. The picture on the right is from that same journal and is a painting of a little summer beach cottage which I call Haven. The door knocker is a peace symbol. The American flag flies over the doorway.
Then when you flip that page over...
you get a 3-way spread. I know it's hard to see...here is the right side page...
The fish page has a paint chip that is called "Still Life." (A little humor here). I used my sewing machine to stitch the fish page to the chair page.
This page...I just made a messy background which I actually like, and glued the photo of a chair with the....red, white and blue...a closeup..
Journaling is about capturing things on a page that you like.
