Hi everyone. Happy Wednesday.
This month is winding down quickly, isn't it? Being away for more of less a couple of weeks really makes it feel like I didn't have much of a September, but I actually did, just not at home.
One thing I want to share today is another page for Neet's Fur and/or Feather challenge at Art Journal Journey. You still have a few days to join in if you're interested.
Once again (like with a page I shared last week) I was playing around with a traditional image and a modern colorful background. My background is another gelli print.
I think the background reproduces the feel of the savannah where leopards live. They have so much they need to constantly be aware of just to keep themselves alive. All those dots could be pairs of eyes from other animals living on the savannah also.
The first thing I added to my page was this white die cut shape. No it isn't white any longer since I used a brown marker along the edges and also inked it with grey and brown ink. You can see it is rectangular with some notched out triangles on each side.
Then I layered some tropical images that I cut out of a booklet of images from Africa. I added the leopard and the baobab trees as well as a couple of small bits of designed paper. The quote comes from the same image collection, and then, since there are so many dots on my background, I added some blue little bubble charms on my background "rectangle".
Nothing to fancy but there is my page. This is one of my favorite pages of the month.
As I'm having an art WEdnesday, I also want to share a tag for Pinky's Book/ Book Pages challenge at Tag Tuesday.
I painted my tag with some acrylic paints. I added a small rectangular white and yellow sticker just before I stamped some background images. I also added some bits from an old dictionary page. The tag is finished off with some pine stickers as well as a sticker quote.
And that's my tag.
I'm keeping today's post short. I hope your week is going well.
