Hi friends. Another spread in my word play journal. I told my daughter that this was my 'F' word, and she just snickered. But no bad language here. My word for the letter F is friends. You can find all the completed pages here.
I wanted to make something for the weekly challenge on the OWSE facebook page, I decided to to make another spread for this journal. There were some choices for colors, and I chose green and yellow. This is really not one of my favorite color combinations, but I guess I need to step out of my box once in awhile.
Although the background of the pages was done previously, I added more color with both paint and ink. Then I did a bunch of stamping and added some texture with modeling paste and a butterfly stencil (Red Lead). In a couple of places, the ink underneath bled through the modeling paste, so I went over that with white acrylic paint. It didn't completely cover, but I thought it wasn't too noticeable, since the background is pretty busy anyway, and I was going to cover up a lot of it with the dolls and the words.
I used two of my new Prima mixed media dolls by Julie Nutting. I have a hard time remembering the names. I first glued a page from an old encyclopedia onto a piece of this card stock and then stamped the dolls on that and cut them out. I paper pieced the clothes and the hair on one.
Behind the dolls are die cuts of a French pastry doily die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and a Sizzix scalloped circle.
The words were printed on my computer and cut out. The edges on everything are sponged with vintage photo distress ink. The letter F is done with zentangles or zendoodles, whichever you want to call it.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
