Journal pages

Here are pages eight and nine.

I think page eight is my favourite so far. The page was divided diagonally in half and each side painted with a selection of different colours. Once dry I applied a large mask and painted over it with turquoise paint. I then used a smaller mask with the same pattern to paint on three white flowers. The pierrot was added as the focal point and the other background papers positioned as guided by the prompt. I deliberately kept these papers quite delicate, they are actually bits from a printed copy of one of my collages. I then added the words, this time ignoring Kelly Kilmer's prompt, as today it didn't seem to fit my page.

Page nine used similar colours to the previously posted 'Purple, orange & blue.' Although it is difficult to see here, the clothes the girl in the photo is wearing complement the background colours. I used 'vintage photo' Distress Ink to make the photo look older. The journal theme was 'what did you think you wouldn't like, but did.'
