Back again with another Sari Journal spread using the irresistible materials and products form Gwen's Lafleur's online store
True to my form as of late,no in process photos,but let me walk you through what I did.
I started with scraping Impasto paints onto my plain pages with a credit card.
After this,I applied with matte gel a piece of Gwen's Florentine paper across both pages in the center. Next I mixed modeling paste with red paint and scraped this through Gwen's ArtDeco Medallion and Boho Circle Stencils.
After this had all dried,I made a wash of water and yellow ochre, which was blended across both pages.
Then after distressing the edges of the elephant and woman with peacock cutouts, I glued each one to its page and again used some of the yellow ochre to blend these into the backgrounds.
From here I went on to adding blue paint to the outside of the pages and some burgundy around the cut out pieces.
Then came the gorgeous Northern Lights embossing powder by Emerald Creek,my photos are not doing the colors justice!
Then I had this great idea!(in my humble opinion) to add feathers to the peacock cutout.
These were arranged and glued into place with matte gel.
Using a piece of navy mulberry paper from one of Gwen's prepackaged stashes, again I mixed modeling paste,this time with a coordinating blue paint and stenciled various feathers from the Peacock Feather stencil onto the mulberry paper. When this was dry, I fussy cut out the feathers and added more colors,shades of violet,teal and interference purple.
After the feathers were all colored and placed a Vintage Kuchi patch was glued on top with heavy body matte gel
Well,then the elephant on the opposite page needed some bling as well.This is where the beautiful Irresistible India red&gold trim came in to border the base of the cutout and some "diamond" bling for the top.
Everything on both pages then was given a light wash of water and Quinacridone Gold to blend things a bit more evenly.
and there you have it!
The journey will continue on at some point as there are still many pages to fill in this journal.
