Book pages for Try it on Tuesdays

Brave Spirit

Book Pages,,, is the new challenge theme at Try it on Tuesdays.
Please pop over for all the details and see what the team have been making.
 From me a mixed and hybrid page, with digital additions,

This is the original  page  on the left.
 A paint  sprayed and splashed background.

The Book print is a page from a very old french book I picked up in a jumble sale many years ago,

The main image of the girl is stamped., its a Wonky Tonk girl from  Which Craft.

She was coloured a little, before the photograph was taken to my digital program to have  the animals and more splodges added.


I am also sharing a card with you this week, which I made a little while ago but didn't blog

The image was stamped and embossed onto the book page , then  watercoloured .

But as many of you know I love to alter my                     original pieces, in a digital program.

So this is the result.
I used elements from Mischief Circus kits as well as some of my own backgrounds.

Thank you for calling in to see me today.

I'm sure you will think of many ways to use book prints and I hope you will pop over to TioT's and join us there.

Thank you for calling in to see me today.
 You are most welcome.

If you called in for T stands for Tuesday, please scroll down to my earlier post.

  6. Both are stunning projects Yvonne and both so different.

  7. Beautiful pieces Yvonne. Love the imagery in your Brave Spirit - beautifully created page.
    The great thing about digital additions, especially when it comes to splodges and splatters, is that they go first time exactly where you want them to - heaven!

    Have a great day.. Gill xx

  18. Gorgeous book pages Yvonne. Your first one is my favorite- I love the wolves. How stunning. Hugs-Erika

  19. Both beautiful, how well using book pages works here.
    I especially like the last picture, everything is just right in it, the girl to the side, the angled book page, the dots, the words, everything.

  20. Oh yes i love how you did these. Beautiful znc i have to say i love how the contrast is between the text and the flowers. Stunning.
