But a journal day it was and here is the end result........
I had some very vibrant deli paper left over from another project and rather than stash it away (where it would probably not see the light of day for another millennium), I decided that it would fit well as the background for this quote, which has been rattling around in my head for awhile now as an idea for a journal page.
I have to be honest and own up that once the the deli paper was glued into my moleskin, I set to with a wash of gesso to tone it down and then re-inked, stamped, stencilled and coloured randomly to bring it back to life.
The quote was stamped in black archival ink using a SU alphabet stamp set that I've had for years. I inked the edges with Twisted Citron Distress Ink to pick up the green acrylic paint I used on the deli paper, then added shadows with a black Faber Castell Big Bush marker pen. There's a little doodling here and there with a Signo white marker pen for good measure.
And ......(as they say in the USA)...... there you have it. Not quite my usual journaling style but I am happy to try something out of my comfort zone once in a while.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my post.
