The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

twin journal pages...
it's been ages since I played in my journal just for fun, but I was bored yesterday (no football to watch!) and I couldn't summon enough enthusiasm to make some more Christmas cards...
The page on the left was mostly done, and was hanging around on a WOYWW desk recently but I don't seem to have taken a proper sized photograph
this is the right page. it's gone through a few transformations, I was painting over some random brush strokes that I didn't want, with Plum and Chalk Fresco . The yellow is brusho dropped in the wet paint. and smudged around... and partly wiped off. Stencilled Marlin and Chalk through a stencil.
the left hand page has had more brushos dropped on it and both have gesso circles (lids from an old glue bottle or something) The right page I diluted with some gesso first, it was a bit dark to do anything over..
and black gesso with a stickles lid, and a credit card
followed this through on the other page too
the pages needed something to focus on, but I chose to stamp in Cobalt archival ink on Paperartsy Crackly tissue (still hoarding some) but once I glued it to the page, it blends in too much, the background is too dark...
used Plum archival on tissue for the right page, which shows up a little better. Would have been better on white card, I think....or the stamping done in black ... or left off altogether!
