Sisters in Silhouette.



A journal spread for Art journal Journey. where the theme is ' For the record '.
My song today is Sisters sung by the Beverley sisters, my mother used to love them back in the day.



You may have seen a glimpse of the pages in my last post, beside my cup of tea.
The background was sprayed  and mopped up and I used  a stencil  mask for the  the silhouette face..
I  added more shading, took a photo and then added some digital images and the wording. in my Craft Studio.
The main word 'sister's' was assembled  with some stick on letters I have had for years and not used.


Above is  my hands on  version.
with added random stamping and quote.
Sometimes pages work out, but these ones  I am not quite happy with-- too green
These pages I will share over at The Take a Word Challenge where the theme is  'Silhouette'

Thank you for calling in to see me, the comments you leave for me are always appreciated.

  12. I love both pages Yvonne, and it certainly doesn't look too green as it's offset with the black silhouette.
