Another week has gone by without me blogging in between Workdesks... (unless you count the Kew post on Saturday)
so it's time again to join Julia
for our weekly Wednesday desk hop
I seem to only be able to work in journals at the moment, and here is another one...
I'm going to do something I don't normally in my Wednesday posts, and take you through it in a couple of photos...
The first picture was going to be my desk shot..(part finished)
this is the first photo - painted the page with Blood Orange Fresco paint, and a layer of gesso which turns it a kind of pinky colour.
I then tore some pieces of Tim Holtz tissue wrap and glued it to the page and sealed with matte medium.
Then I stencilled black gesso over a small (left page) and large - well 6x6 (right page) Seth Apter stencil/mask... so you just get a hint of the original pinky colour under the tissue...
I was in two minds about covering up the large butterfly but as you see, I did, and cut one of the smaller butterflies from the next run of the tissue wrap, and painted it on the back, with pink Frescos (Bubblegum and then Sherbert) and glued it to the bottom of the page.
this was going to be my other desk shot... the journal page from last week, sitting on top of my boxes of Fresco paints,
I've added some more to it, but don't have a close up...I might remember to do that for next week!
I'll leave it at that for today or I'll be in trouble with Queen Julia... thanks for stopping by, catch you later.
