When I took Traci Bautista's class aeons ago, she told us to make copies of our work so we could incorporate them into future collages, so I had recently gone to the copy store and made color copies. (yes, I could just print them out from my computer, but then they smear when I go to use them because the ink is water based- I love the quality from the color copier- and the toner doesn't smear- and what's more, can be used for image transfer! wheeeeeeee!) ok, you get the idea- so I went over and copied some of my previous pages. Here's the front and back of my journal, with some images cut out ..... (I used gel medium to transfer the images to the page- funnnnnnnn!)
Ok, so I'm working on it.....it's getting a little dark..... I am frustrated and leave it for a couple of days at this point.
(hmmmm.....it doesn't look as dark here as in person, but trust me, you could hardly see my little flying guy)
So, I painted over the scallops, and the dark red checks, added some stamps, then portfolio pastels, STILL TOO DARK! ARGGHHHHH! One last attempt- paint! and voila- this is it.
Here is the top portion only. I like the composition- off to the copy store. I think it will be the new back cover. (That will be my next post.) If you read this whole long wordy post- my thanks to you! :)
