I painted another journal page today, using some of the techniques of Donna Downey. If you notice the butterflies, they are actually an image transfer. You coat the paper with gel medium, then place the images on the gel, and scrape with a straight edge. After about a minute or so, you can lift up the paper and see if the images has transfered. I still had to use my fingertips to rub off some of the paper, and it's always kind of spotty (which I love) - but cool! Go here if you would like to print off a free butterfly image paper.
The flowers came by way of a new stamp that I got several weeks ago. Then I just painted in the color. I know it's all kinda messy, but I really like that look anyway. It's so funny that Donna and I seem to love the same color palettes! And, we both love "Drippies" and "Flicks" of color.
I'm really enjoying this process!
