Hi everyone. Happy middle of the week.
Today I'm back with another page for Neet's Fur and/or Feather challenge at Art Journal Journey. I think the page is pretty self explanatory with the title I added.
I started with a brightly colored Gelli print that I dulled down a bit with some white gesso. I wondered if the vintage looking images would work on the modern background. I always think it's fun to try items together you don't think will work and then find that they do.
I used a vintage horse riding image from my stash, as well as fussy cutting out the 2 trophies out of a sheet of old scrapbooking paper from my stash. The dog is a sticker. I also used some copper metallic tape and a bit of paper lace, as well as stickers for the title of my page.
These horses have short fur, and the dog is definitely long haired and very furry.
I was having a bit of trouble with a photographic glare and the copper tape. I decided to dull down the copper tape a bit by using a piece of sandpaper on it. I like the details it added when being lightly sanded, even if I still ended up with a bit of glare.
I was hoping to share a few photos from my trip today, but I haven't finished going through them yet. I did however come home to one of the dahlia's I planted this spring being in bloom. The flower is huge.
And beautiful too.
I hope my other dahlia plants bloom also, especially if they produce these giant blooms. (I had bought a mixed bag of flowers, so it is always exciting to see what you get.)
I hope your week is going well. And thanks for visiting my blog.
