Playing Catch Up

Today I have been playing catchup with the April challenges I posted on 12 Months in View.

At the beginning of April there was a giveaway from Anita of some Primrose and Primula related papers.  I made a book with her second set of papers. 

I gessoed the page in my journal (left) and printed off this paper from the set.

I swiped 3 different colours of Distress Ink over the gessoed page and wiped on the colour with a baby wipe.

I inked over the flowers on the printed page.

I tore the flowers out and stuck them onto the journal page with gel medium.  I printed out the quote, cut it up and inked the edges before sticking it down on the page.  I found the butterfly card topper and stuck that on as well.

The page seemed to be a bit disjointed and the eye had nowhere to rest.  So I inked butterflies through a stencil using black distress ink.

Then I moved on to the April 23rd challenge.  Although I had already done a Shakespeare-related blog post I decided to do a journal page as well.

I started by collaging scraps of music paper, map, pattern paper, doilies and paper napkins onto my page.

Then I sprayed yellow ink over the whole page.

I printed out the quote from A Midsummer Night's Dream, cut it up and inked the edges.

I haven't totally caught up yet but I do feel I made some headway today.

Thanks for stopping by.
