The lovely Elizabeth is hosting this months AJJ Summertime Love theme and this is my second page for that, it's digital but I re-used some of my old art and made new things too.
In the Summer I love that people always seem to dress in brighter colours and everything else for the summer seems brighter happier colours too.
The background paper started, would you believe, from some messy scrap paper that I get left with after I put a sheet of paper under my pages when working to protect the pages below.
You get left with lots of messy blobs, lines and squares - like the picture below - this one obviously hadn't been used much and had great potential to be used for something else.
I scanned the paper and then in my graphics/photo editing software of choice, duplicated the paper after taking out the white background leaving just the colour.
I layered and rotated my images and then added some digitalised faux writing I had made a while ago. ( I must admit when I look close up there does like an occasional real word but that was not intentional)
For my page I also used some paint drips and inky circles created in the same way.
I love playing with my software and getting as much use from something I have created that can be used over and over again in different ways.
The flower and scent bottle were from two of my May AJJ 'Elegance and Grunge pages'. I digitally cut them out and then altered the label on bottle and some bits on the flower petals.
If you can make use of the paper I made (JPG file) and paint drip (PNG file) I've added it to the bottom of my free use images section.
thanks for stopping by,
hope you have a great week.
