School Stories

On 12 Months in View today Carolyn has provided us with a look at the children's book genre of School Stories.

The art challenge was to produce something school related.  Carolyn altered the cover of a composition notebook.  I chose to do a collaged journal page.

I collected together some scrapbooking papers and some other bits.

I tore up bits of paper and glued them to the page in my journal using Multi Medium.

 When the glue was dry I scraped a very thin layer of gesso over the whole page.

I used two colours of Dabbers through stencils and added several patterns of washi or tissue tape.

I printed out a photo of my Masters Degree graduation on copy paper and tore round it.  I added the lettering.

Thanks for stopping by.
