Here are some deep thoughts from Dyan Reaveley's sentiment stamps, included on an art journal page that began, oddly enough, last October. I made this page then:
It's one of my favorites. I love the colors and how heavy the page is (loads of extra heavy gesso embedding the tags), and that I used so many different materials, including some very old ones. And also because it made all three of my sisters wonder which one I was talking about!
Once you make an odd-sized page, though, you need another idea for the back of it. Slowly over these last few months I've added bits of 'mop up' to it. Stencils and paint really built it up and then I thought to number the sentiments, like rules to live by.
If you read the older post you'll see my rave review of Julie Fei-Fen Balzer and how I got the page with embedded tags idea during one of her classes. If you get the chance to take a class with Julie, do!
And if you're in New England and you have time tomorrow, come join me at the Great American Stamp Store for my art journaling class… there's one seat left!
Thanks for the visit.
