'Vintage Photo' is the new theme over at Try it on Tuesdays.
The girls have made some fantastic pieces, please pop over to see what they made.
This is how my journal page started off, it is a kraft card journal and soaks up the paint, I had no gesso so used watered down acrylics, which eventually worked.
The first stage was to add a texture using paste and a stencil.
This is how it looked after added some book print and spray paint. It slushed up so much ink on the print that I ended up covering part with some material and got out the trusty distress ink. Problem solved..
Back to inky fingers, so sorry no photos of these stages.
It was finished off with touches of gilding wax.
Found relatives photos and a number of bits and pieces.
I don't often have a plan when I create a journal page but this time, I did.
My thinking was. that we all grow older,
yet, friendships that span those years,
become stronger as the years go by.
Thank you for calling to see me today and I hope you will join us at TioT's.
