Collage with Anita's papers

Again this month, Anita van Hal has provided 12 Months in View with digital papers for free.

As you know I love to make books with her designs but this month I thought I would try something different.   Collage!

I printed off three of her designs.

I tore around the design on the page on the left.

I glued the doily page into my journal and then glued the star shape on top, having first inked the edges.
The gel medium was quite a runny one and the paper was ordinary printer paper so there was a lot of bubbling up.

I added a semi circle of a white doily on the left of the page, although you can't really see it in this photo.  I tore round the bluebell image and glued that on top.

I added some modelling paste through a Dina Wakley mosaic stencil and when it was dry added some distress ink.

Then I added some black distress ink through the same stencil.

And finally I added the quote.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Super page and love the mosaic stencil very effective. BJ

  2. Watching you build this page was just like watching a garden come into bloom!

  3. Knew I'd commented on the lovely stencil, can't believe you bought a duplicate but am glad you did as I love it. Thanks - it was a lovely surprise this afternoon as I am off for my scan in a moment. The card has Alliums on it too which have fond memories for me as well. HUGS BJ

  4. Love seeing how your pages come together - you are so very creative!
