for the love of Irresitible Sari Scrap Part two...

 and the Sari Scrap journal spread diaries continues...
today I return,sharing more on how I have used these gorgeous bits of mixed media goodness~
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 hoard save!
Available at the shop are 2 and 4 oz packages in colors of 
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:
the sun
the moon
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!

 Well,I do hope you have enjoyed my 
Irresistible Sari Scrap journal spread diaries.
I know,not much of story,but some awesome pictures-right? lol

Thanks again for continuing to follow along on this fabulous artful journey I am on. 
I so appreciate each and every one of you who takes the time for a visit,and love it so much when you leave a comment!
Peace & Love

Really loving this work with the sari scraps! And on this piece, the stencil-over-batik is very effective. Gives the work a sense of permanence.
All the layers and textures - not to mention COLORS - really are evocative and makes one want to peruse (and, heh heh, handle) each one!
Lovely work, woman!

Jackie this is just so pretty - delicious! xoxo

Angela Radford said...

Oh my! Jackie this is just delicious! These scraps are lush and I'm not sure I could use them easily without feeling I needed to keep some so no wonder you chose them so carefully and methodically (I bet!). Absolutely adore the batik pieces. I used to do quite a bit when I was teaching and have several bits hoarded sorry stored away Lol! I don't know anywhere in the UK that sells these but will have to investigate. Maisie and Stan and me of course send you big hugs xXx

Corrine at said...

Wonderful layering and textures on these fab patterns. Keep going. xox

denthe said...

That stencil really is beautiful yes, it gives such a vibrant and lively feel to the page. It is such fun to "see" you create. I can feel your joy and excitement throughout your post :-) Thanks for your beautiful comments on my blog. I don't get your comments in my email anymore so I can't respond to them, but know that I read them all and appreciate them a lot! I saw that comment which mentioned "testing", and I was wondering what was going on. Blogger does seem to have issues lately ... And it's so annoying when you've been writing a long comment and suddenly, whoosh, it's gone. I try to remember to copy my comment before I post it, so I can just paste it again in case something goes wrong. Wishing you a fantastic weekend dear Jackie, with lots of sari-fun :-) Hugs ♥

wowzers, this is amazing!!!!

Pamellia Johnson said...

Absolutely gorgeous Jackie! I saw a bag of Sari ribbon scraps for sale on Etsy, and I immediately thought of you! Your ability to coordinate different patterns and colours together and make it looks so beautiful, is just extraordinary! I love the textures you created and all the wonderful elements, a stunning creation!

As I was blogging this morning I've seen so many photographs of flowers and green grass. I find it so odd since it will be several months until we get that far into spring. We've had some nice weather this week, but it's really just a big tease, I'm sure we will get plenty more cold weather before it's time for planting flowers. I hope it's been nice out where you are my friend. sending hugs :)

Lynda Shoup said...

Oh my! Oh my! I love this to the bottom of my soles/soul! Jackie you have stolen my heart and breath with this one. Those combinations. I am agog at the way you used the materials - so outside my line of thinking. Gorgeousness defined!
