H is for Humour

If you want to join in with making an A to Z of Me Journal through the month of February click through to the Challenge blog.

Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Humour which is my last catch up page.

I put an elastic band around the celery stalks and then cut either side.  I was hoping that there would be an obviously different print from the more open stalks inside the elastic band.

Instead of printing I thought I would try the ghosting technique as the celery was wet.  However it wasn't wet enough and I had to dip it in water and leave it on the page.

That wasn't terribly successful so I mixed some bright pink ink with modelling paste and stamped with it.  The pink mixed with the turquoise ink to make a purple colour.

Here it is in close-up.

I stamped the word.  Can you spot the deliberate mistake?  Well, okay then, it wasn't deliberate the first time.  I stamped the wrong side of the first U so then decided to do the second one the same.  I used white acrylic paint to stamp the letter properly!   I painted the rest of the letters with a brush and the ReInker.   I inked the edges of the quote and verse and stuck them down.  

I added my journaling.

I'm not thrilled with this page but it doesn't matter.

All caught up now.  Thanks for stopping by.
