deeper into the book of wishes


Yesterday I showed you the first page of my latest project – the first one I could call finished (ish).

This is the latest page, I began playing with over the weekend.

layers of lumpiness


As Sunday’s cut-out page was backed with card, turning over to Monday’s page, meant incorporating two big rectangles of  card bang in the middle of the page. I often follow the adage If you can’t hide it, make a feature of it, so this page was destined to be layered in a chunkier fashion than before.

Collaged into disguise with layers of dyed paper, bits n scraps of leftovers from old projects (those swirl shapes keep on coming back!), unified with layers of tissue paper.

As there was a little bit of left over gold card, I made a block with the day and date, written in dead biro (no ink, but still a useful tool)

After accidentally modpodging too far over the edges, as an exercise in ‘let’s see what happens’, I brushed modpodge over the card, then red  ink. Scraping back when it was nearly dry revealed the shiny gold again.
