Create Memories - Journal Page

More leftover paint on a journal page started this one off!! 

 I was trying to drip some gesso down the page, but thin though my tub of gesso is, it wouldn't drip far, so I used my gelli plate comb (not that I have a gelli plate!) to drag the gesso down the page.  Then I did the same from the bottom up, to meet in the middle.

Stamps are Dylusions, in cobalt archival.

Next to my favourite prim poppies die, (need to cut some more in black and white!) which I glued on.   Then the hunt started for some large single word stamps... luckily I remembered these (the Artistic Stamper) - perfect!

Wow! That gelli plate comb made a terrific effect, even if you don't have a gelli plate! These pages are really dramatic; I love those poppies! Julie Ann xx

LOVE this page, Helen - the background is scrummy and the black&white flowers look amazing against it.

Those poppies are superb. I like them a LOT. And the strips of gesso are the perfect addition to your page. And here I thought I was the only person left on the planet who didn't own a Gelli.

What a gorgeous page Helen. Beautiful colours and I love you ability to find an alternative when things don't behave as you want them to. That die has been on my wish list for a while but it's just jumped to the top! The big words look great!
