I’ve been working away on my Full Tilt Boogie Journal. I have four more spreads ready to post. On this first spread, I used a photo of my granddaughter that didn’t print out well…not sure what the problem is with my printer. I embellished it with colored markers…and don’t you love that peace sign Duck Tape? I glued in a card that my friend Janet sent me earlier this year.
This page has some collage pieces from an old murder mystery book that I painted with watercolors. I used Stonehenge paper for the pages in this journal and it seems to hold up well when using watercolors.
This spread has a little bit of everything: scrapbook paper, painted papers, label from chocolate wine bottle, doodles, and magazine collage pieces. In the lower left….the Snoopy and plane are from a 1980’s children’s magazine.
This spread started with collage pieces from an old French guide book (Nagel’s France) . I felt guilty about tearing the book apart….I have used pieces from it all throughout the journal. On the left…there is another big collage piece from the same 1980’s magazine that I mentioned above. For the face….I started with eyes from a magazine ad. I don’t think I’ll try that again…it’s difficult to get the face to fit the eyes. I used acrylic paints, brush pen and colored markers.
