I'm here today with a journal page for our newest challenge at Try It On Tuesday .
Our new challenge at Try It on Tuesday is book pages, so you should use some book paper in your art. I began with a piece of watercolor paper that I painted with some assorted metallic paints. Then I took a page out of an old illustrated science dictionary and ripped it into 4 vertical pieces. I attached those pieces to my painted background with matte medium. I also used some bits of a printed tissue paper.
This page needed something horizontal, so I did some stitching in white.
I then embossed some silver paper using a TH texture fade embossing folder. This folder embosses the entire alphabet, so as you can see, I cut some the letters out of the whole image. To age it a bit, I rubbed some black ink on it. I also stamped some postmarks on wax paper so I could adhere them and get a transparent view. To finish my background, I stamped some periodic table boxes randomly on my page from an older set of clear stamps I own.
Finally I added this group of girls and stamped my quote on their skirts using white ink. I like to think these young ladies are students of science and will help open doors to women in the future.
Don't forget to head over the all of the Try It On Tuesday designers blogs for inspiration and ideas. We accept all kinds of art, and you have 2 weeks to join into this challenge.
I'm also sharing a last page for Neet's TYPE challenge at Art Journal Journey which ends today. Thanks again to Neet and those of you who shared so many fabulous art journal pages over at Art Journal Journey .
