Sunflower collage

On 12 Months in View today we are giving away another set of Anita's beautiful pages.

I started by printing some of them out and then decided I would collage the sunflowers.  Originally I was going to collage onto Anita's background paper but then decided to do it straight into my journal.

I put some sewing pattern paper first and then some paper napkin and a bit of paper doily.  I tore round the sunflower images I had printed out ans stuck them down.  I did a wash of Lemon Zest Dylusions ink over the whole page.

I randomly stamped with 3 different stamps and added some modelling paste through a stencil.

It all looked rather yellow so I added some red, some yellow green and some white acrylic paint.

Then I stamped the words and drew round the letters with a silver pen.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I love the way you keep adding elements and they all come together at the end to make a beautiful work!

  2. What a good reminder to use pattern paper - I've got a bunch of it in my stash.
