and the Sari Scrap journal spread diaries continues...
in my Irresistible Sari Scrap story
Irresistible India Embellished Sari Scraps.
Having chosen each Sari Scrap piece carefully and methodically placed...
hows that for dramatic! teeheehee
Seriously,just look at this gorgeous transparent green piece of Sari. The beading down the side of it reminds me of a climbing vine.
These two divine clusters!!
Well,these were cut from a small scrap and look as though they were made for just this place!
Both of these pieces came from the Greens package of Irresistible Sari Scraps.
I have to say,there are so many incredibly gorgeous pieces in each package-you will have a hard time choosing which to use and which to
Available at the shop are 2 and 4 oz packages in colors ofPurple/Lavender
I think I have one of each and two of some!
Here,I have used Gwen's delicate Ornamental Petals Screen Stencil,to highlight the Sari scrap clusters.I just love how this shows on the black background-exquiste!
and here,I have included a splash!of embossing powder for some additional glimmer
On the left page of this spread,I have cut and pieced some gorgeous Batik fabric pieces my childhood friend Jennifer Gammon Murphy aka LadyJaneVintage sent me recently.thank you Jen!
These Batik pieces were adhered to the page using heavy matte gel medium and left to dry.
When dry,using Gwen's Art Deco Sunburst Background Stencil,I spread translucent embossing paste through and left this to harden.
After the embossing paste was dry,using my fingers,I gently highlighted the stenciled parts with shades of turquoise,lavender and green,blending with the colors on the opposing page
The background for this page had been done a few days before,and now only needed some special graphics and wording.
I had used the same stencil here~Gwen's Art DecoSunburst Background ~ I love this part~such a cool design!and just look at how delicious those colors look on it!
The wording I chose...
Three things cannot long be hidden:
and the truth
To finish my page, I added these beautifully brilliant graphics from Gwen's Downloadable Collage Cut-Outs-Irrestible India Collection. I feel like the veils on these women resemble the green beaded Sari and therefore carried the feel across the pages,what do you think?
If you haven't been over to Gwen's store before, you really should go have a look~Truly one of a kind supplies from all over the globe and the ways to use these items in Mixed Media Art is endless!!
and...till the end of this month,in honor of Chinese New Year, Gwen has 15% off of anything in the Exotic Orient Category!
