52 pages 2011

page 31 Compromise.

I started with a stencil, some spray inks and lots of blotting.

Added a little gesso.

added a black and white photo of a 'push me pull you', which I gessoed and coloured. Exactly as in the self portrait of the previous post.

Then I stamped and cut out my title, edged it and glued it on.

for the back, I was playing around with Inktense pencils. I wet the page...with tea, cos that happened to be next to me...then I shaved off some of the Inktense pencil. I just used a craft knife and scraped at the point of the pencil and let it drop over the damp page. Not for any real purpose, other than to see what would happen.

I am sure it would work with clean water

I printed out my journalling , edged it and glued it down.


  1. hi :)
    this is me being very pleased that you are now showing up on my dashboard thing.

  2. Fabulous creations. and painting with tea cracked me up. I'm totally the same way... who has time to stop and get up to get clean water when the inspiration is flowing?!

  3. I love the way you layer everything ...each layer, a piece of art in its own right ...and the final layer topping it all off so beautifully.
