Hi everyone. It's Friday and almost the weekend. And it's almost the end of July also.
Today I want to share one last journal page for Wendy's Door and/or Arches challenge at Art Journal Journey. Thank you Wendy for this challenge and for being a host. I enjoyed thinking about doors and arches and how to incorporate them into a journal page. I tried to be a little creative with the topic too. I'm not sure ( in my own personal judgement) if I succeeded at pushing the envelope too far, but I still had fun making my pages.
And thanks to everyone who joined in also. It was fun to see your take on Wendy's theme, and as always, your participation is appreciated by those of us who are Art Journal Journey admins. Of course you still have a few days to join in as the month isn't over yet.
For my last page I used this image which I believe is more of a window than a door, but it does have that nice brick arch over it. And the garden view outside of it is beautiful.
I started with both a sheet of watercolor paper and also a page from an old dictionary. I inked both. Then I added the dictionary page onto my watercolor paper. To pull the two together I added several pieces of washi tape. Finally I added the acetate door image, the girl, the rose image, a scrap of paper, and some small foam flowers. I finished my page by stamping the quote on the girl's bodice.
