Tattered Angels & Background Art Paper Part II

The next set of pages are from my art journal that I’ve been working on. Again I want everyone to see how incredible these projects work for creating your own background papers. This page is being created with techniques from a class, 30 Days in Your Journal, with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. After applying a light layer of gesso I sprayed the following colors ~  Purple Pansy, Piece of Heart, Juniper and Electric Blue Glimmer Mist and Calypso & Fairway Glimmer Chalkboard with a Crafters Workshop stencil that is becoming one of my favorites. More 7 Gypsies paper tape and a border stamp designed by Dyan Reaveley's for Dylusions  help to create this 2 page spread which will finish on my grandson’s, Shane, 8th birthday. Here are the results:

I'm so glad you stopped is Friday which means that for the next 2 days I can create art whenever I want...only 40 more school days and I will be to do that all the time....yipee!

Have a great weekend ;)

  2. What great pages you have, love the leaves and springy look to it. I like how you added the heart for your grandsons birthday. Funny that your counting down the days just like my kids are.
