Hi everyone. Happy Friday, already. March is a strange month because even though in general the weeks go by quickly, it seems like it's been March for quite awhile now. And we're not even that far into the month, are we?
Today I have a collage spread I made using mostly an assortment of scraps.
You can see the whole spread above. I am trying to use up some of the scraps in my bin, and that is where many of the materials from these pages come from.
This top page's background is made with a scrap of yellow polka dot paper, a paint color card, an embossed piece that I made ages ago for a card that never was to be, as well as small piece of yellow hand made paper. I then added cut out fabric heart, some cut out circles, a vintage looking cat image and this vintage looking girl, both which came off an old journal page I started but didn't like the results so never finished.
You can see the quote stickers here, as well as some fabric trim, some gold metallic paper suns, a piece of metallic paper trim and the little spring foam flowers around the girl.
The opposite side of the spread is made with some scrap paper that was the wrapping of this journal, and old (maybe reproduced) can label, the back of a playing card, a couple more fabric hearts and also more of that handmade yellow paper.
To tie it into the other side of the spread I added the cut out circles, the same ribbon, a couple more gold paper suns, as well as another vintage image of the same same decade as the girl on the other side. And then I added a few other bits and pieces to finish off the page that include some acetate printed scraps, some metallic little hearts, and the back of an old playing card. I stamped the "beautiful things await you" quote in the space on the can label also.
I am linking up to a few challenges today. First of all I am joining Creative Artiste Mixed Media Challenge #80 where the challenge is always Anything Goes, but be sure to use various media. I am also linking up to Art Journal Journey and Valerie's challenge for March is spring.
I hope everyone had a great start to your weekend.
And thanks for visiting my blog.
