Fresh Eyes

Spring is finally around the corner (again) and I have felt the need to move to a fresh springlike palette of colours lately. Along with with bring fresh colours, I'm hoping comes a matching attitude. Hence the journaling on the page.

This spread is in my altered book, which I haven't used in a while. I started with collaging vintage and worn papers onto the pages. Next I put gesso on the page, followed by some paint that was spread with a brayer. I dropped some watercolour down on the pages and let them drip. After that I put down some modelling paste in area and glued down some tissue paper. Next came lace, papers, flowers, inky canvas and ribbon.

I really enjoyed the process, although I had no idea where the spread was going to go... I just followed the muse, and this is what she had to say.

Enjoy your holiday weekend!
