Finally a little play with arts stuff, not really able to go up and play in my craft room, so just doing what i can sat on the sofa in the living room. So this is an art journal page for a challenge over on Ky's page. the rules are, use blue and copper and chipboard.
so this is the base of my page, painted first with brusho paint, then overlayed with Inktense pencils.
next i wrote the lyrics from 'the circle of life' over the page using a copper pencil.
I cut this image from a leaflet, and transferred it to plastic using the packing tape method, only on a bigger scale.
packing tape method video. there are many videos, this is just one.
I used clear sticky backed plastic, it works just the same, but you can do bigger pieces. This page /image is 8inches x 8 inches. I turned it over and coloured in some of the hanging bits with copper paint, and then rubbed copper wax all round the edge of the circle. i did this on the back so it would be more of a subtle colour than painting on the front.
i then went over some of the words with a thicker copper pen, and also rubbed the copper wax around the page edges.
next I took 3 pieces of chipboard, and covered them in copper sheet.
embossed the edge with a fabric wheel, and then stamped in the middles.
