These are pages from my large Dylusions journal that was used last year as my Inspiration Wednesday journal. I'm trying to finish up the book. After these pages, I'll have 6 pages left to complete. As usual, I don't share ALL the pages but a few I find interesting.
Glacier: It all started with the torn paper that was left over from something else. I liked the way I could line up the white parts of the paper. It said "mountain range" at first but the blue overtones made me think of a glacial wall. Added some spackle with a flower stencil that reminded me of snowflakes and used blue acrylic paint to frame the middle section for a focal point. Some days you just want color and my color was blue.
Gone Fishing: I have so much collage stuff that is "nature" or "outdoor" themed. It's leftover from my scrapbooking days when I would scrapbook all my letterboxing adventures. So I pulled out my magazine cut-outs and found a lovely wooded creek to use as my background. Problem? It was an ad for an SUV and that was front and center in my background. Solution? Cover the SUV with the large fish and more collage elements. And what they couldn't cover up, washi tape did. I really like how it turned out.
Thanks for checking out my journal. More to come soon.
