Hi everyone, 2nd post of the day and I'm sharing a double page from my journal this evening.
The theme at That's Crafty! this time is Wish Upon a Star so I think this fits the bill nicely. The journal pages started life as something light and bright which an experiment involving black soon put an end to!
There's a lot of texture on the page, from black gesso plus crackle, then more black gesso followed by pewter treasure gold on the highlights. At which point I thought it began to look like a night sky and went from there.
The quote is one of my favourites and rust coloured prima blooms and silks were incorporated into the background with embossing powders and splats of black and white paint.
I swiped the left over silk glaze on some card for the background of the rusty star, before using a Sara Naumann star stamp.
Over at Frilly and Funkie the theme is 'Something to Say' and I've been wanting to use this beautiful quote by Vladimir Nabokov for some time....I just love it.....'and the rest is rust and stardust'.
