#20 - Triptychs for Paperartsy

We are closing in on the end of the Paperartsy Triptych challenge - another couple of hours - and I have decided to enter this journal page I did yesterday, even though it's not a traditional triptych in the sort of icon style you normally associate with them; I do like the use of trios in art.  There were some fabulous posts over the fortnight starting here


I started with torn book page under a coat of Beach Hut Fresco, and some blue Bistre which I spritzed so much several of my pages fell out of my journal... some sticky tape and glue later the journal was back intact and I could carry on.. I stencilled grunge paste through part of a Crafters Workshop stencil and stamped the Dina Wakley hearts on white card, before deciding on the direction they should take over the pages.. "follow your heart" is from an Invoke Art words set.. I then dripped some Ecoline ink along the top edge of the journal and spritzed it again as it dripped down my pages.

This is a fantastic take on the challenge. What a way to think outside the box. I'm glad you were able to repair your journal, because it would be a shame if some of the completed pages were lost.

The blue Bistre looks gorgeous and the texture paste pops off the page!

Yum - the Beach Hut + blue Bistre gives a wonderful tropical ocean colour. I love the trios of white hearts - a really beautiful page, Helen.
