One of the tips Anna shared with us was to take a couple of blank pages and tape them side by side on our work surface, this made it a lot easier to add lots of gesso, texture paste and embellishments, so that's how I started this spread.
You can see my final nod to Anna, the use of a 'selfie'! If you've seen her work, you will know that she often uses very beautiful images of herself. Here is a link to her blog. I had great fun creating these pages calling on what I'd learnt at the workshop. With my critical eye, I could say that I've probably over worked them and next time I will try and leave some white spaces, but it's so easy to get carried away when you're using such gorgeous products! These pages also fit into our current ePlay Challenge, which is to use fabric in a project. Why not hop over and see the gorgeous journal made by this month's challenge hostess, the wonderful 'Andiepants' as well as some stunning examples of using fabric by the rest of the design team. If my journal pages have inspired you to get your journal out, you can stock up on some fabulous mixed media products at Kim's lovely eclectic Paperie shop, just click on any of the pictures below to be transported there. Until next time ...x
