What a lovely chilled Sunday I have had for once..(apart from having to do some cooking and cleaning). I got to spend most of the afternoon in my workshop and the sun was shining all day!!
So I sat at my desk and thought what shall I do...picked up my altered book and opened a new page. I used butternut, haystack, nougat and vintage lace and smeared them all over the pages with a scraper, drying in between colours..
I then stamped a few minis using tinned peas and sky frescos. when this was dry I used the large ledger stencil from crafters workshop with dreamweaver paste. When this was dry I brushed lightly over it with crimson archival ink, trying to hit just the raised areas....well tried to lol.
Next I printed out a quote from Mother Teresa.'There is no key to happiness, the door is always open'....I love this quote. I cut it out and distressed the edges a bit, went around with black archival and stuck it to my page. I lightly went around the edged with a black pencil and smudged it a bit, added some text and dots in black to balance the page. When it was all dry I sanded it in places just to knock some of the colour back.
I hope you all had a happy Sunday...back to work tomorrow!!
*edit* I have taken another piccie in the daylight..shows the colours better..
