The next set of pages in my Inspiration Wednesday journal. This journal was purchased from Donna Downey Studios. It's unique in it's size and material.
I started this journal at the beginning of this year so I'm posting a few spreads at a time but this journal only gets worked in once every two weeks. It will be done by the end of the year. For sure. Yuppers.
The big idea of the page was to use a resist with a stencil over a painted surface. So I laid down a coat of yellow paint, then added transparent texture paste through the circuit board stencil (on the left). Once that was dry I painted over the whole page with green. The idea being the green would wipe off the resist...which it did...sort of. (But that's pretty much what happened in Donna's layout and she made it work so I wasn't so concerned going in whether the texture paste would resist or not.) I made the green come off with a baby wipe...I like the old paint look of it. And the green color reminds me of painted metal for some reason.
I used the scraps from this weeks spread in the Large Journal. This spread seemed rather straight-forward but it got away from me. I don't really mind all the papers coming together. I kinda lost it on the focal image. And the neon dots of ink just shouldn't have been done. I couldn't figure out a good tag and I got bored with looking at the mess. I admit I gave up on this page.
I'm having a real love-hate relationship with Inspiration Wednesday this year.
