One Page



I have had this background in my journal for a few weeks, and yesterday I suddenly thought to add a city silhouette and the border marks.  Now I think it's really fun and cool!  In this scan, it seems like the buildings look crooked (and maybe they are, a little!), but that is actually because there is texture under them.  I used an alphabet stencil with mod podge, which ran a bit and made the letters sort of soft and rounded.  I outlined a few of the letters, but since they are clear, it makes a subtle and interesting texture, though hard to see in the scan.

  1. What a good idea to finish. This is probably even richer in a close look in real life. I love those colors.

  2. Trade secret? Or will you tell how you made your circles?

    1. Haha, of course. I have a set of foam pouncers for applying paint to stencils. I double-loaded one of those with yellow and white and twisted a little when I stamped it down. I thought it was a TOTALLY original idea, then a week or so later, someone posted in the class forum about that very thing!

  3. Well it was totally original for you. Great ideas frequently appear in several locales. And I think I will looks for some pouncers. Thanks for sharing. (Of course if I were on the class site more often I would know, wouldn't I?)

  4. Ooh! I love it. :) Makes me think also about that famous painting, the starry night one by Van Gogh. Haha.
