I made another journal page that I am linking to Art Journal Journey. I had a lot of fun making this page!
This is the perfect month for a theme of the Sea as it is almost summer. Making these pages is getting me all excited for the beach and boating and all those ocean things. I'm lucky enough to live not too far from the ocean so I get to spend some of my summer enjoying all it has to offer.
I started with a Gelli print with some starfish on it (Stencil Girl). The edges of the page were white so I used some SILKS paints and made what I hoped would look like waves all around the edge. They did color in the white paper but they didn't really look very wave like. So I decided to cut around the edge to give the page the rough scallops. I really like that effect and am going to remember that for some other pages.
Then I collaged the bathing beauty image and some die cut starfish and shells. I also used some matte medium and attached some deli paper that had been Gelli printed along the edge of the page, and then I added some white paint dots and a fun saying I found in a magazine.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and hope you have a great day!
