Art Journal Friday: Words With Friends

Standard
Art Journal Friday: Words With Friends

Hi.  Happy Friday!  Today is all about Words with Friends.  I don’t play the online game, but my husband does.  I play the old school Scrabble game so I found this Document Life 2015 art journal challenge to be great fun.  It is a mixed media art journal page filled with love and happy memories.  I created a collage from various notes, cards, letters and envelopes from friends and family. With the notes I included some other ephemera like a vintage bingo card and some other graphic text.  I also included a middle insertion–an envelope that has a favorite note from a friend.  After I collaged down the various ephemera I added a layer of gesso and some glimmer mist transparent shimmer color– just to add some shimmer.  I also stenciled alphabet letters in various places with Glimmer Mist grey.  After both were dry I added some Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.  I let the distress ink meander its way through the lows of the collage.  I then made copies of Scrabble tiles.  I would have loved to use the actual tiles but since this is a piece in my art journal I wanted it to remain fairly flat.  A girl has to pick where to add dimension if she wants to ever shut her art journal.

Enjoy!

Bird Tag with Texture Paste

Hi.  I am on vacation this week.  Lucky me!  In any case, despite some technical difficulties here is a pretty tag layered with bird ephemera, texture paste, stencil, distress ink, rub-ons and binding.  Check back on Friday to check out a DLP 2015 journal page using the bird tag as a page element.   I hope you enjoy!

Cheers,

Trish
