I think I'd lost my mojo lately doing real journal pages (proper painty messy ones instead of digital ones) but then one morning last week while having the first cup of tea in bed watching youtube videos, a new upload popped up and inspired me to want to make a page.
The video and inspiration was thanks to the fabulous Susi aka froebelsternchen and while watching, it suddenly occurred to me what my main problem was - I am gesso lazy - err? I put off using gesso - but why? - probably because of lack of space to leave things to dry.. (probably another reason I had put off using the Gelli plate in the past) well ok Gill, get that sorted and then you have no excuses! So I did and then I went mad for the last two days gessoing lots of pages :)
So this was the page I made and I'm linking to AJJ 'out and about' theme for March hosted by the lovely Yvonne from Meggy's Way
The page has my old school dictionary pages on it - yes I used gesso of course! - drew flowers on patterned paper and cut out.. and created a sheet of various words for future use on my pc then printed/cut and stuck down with glue stick. Colour is acrylic on back ground and stems/leaves Stabillo all and Inktense pencils.
It's Sunday and you can probably guess the weather - yep grey - raining on and off and now the wind picking up, so I'm going to have a lazy play day Sunday - no gessoing today - just fun!.
Have a lovely day
and thanks so much for stopping by
