Title: Complicated One
I've made this mixed-media art journal page for 2 challenges:
*Lithuanian challenge swap 'mainų ratas' Nr.4 (theme: to use sewing on your page).
CSI Case Nr.8 had the following interpretation board:
I've checked off every suggested prompt, and had an ease about scrapping when there is definite structure given, yet there's enough flexibility in how one would choose to interpret it.
Also, the color palette is one of my favorites! Thanks CSI for a wonderful 'Case Study'!
My favorite aspect of creating this page was making the crumpled paper. I just got a whole stack of ridiculously discounted thicker weight resume paper. My hubby had a laugh: "Don't you know that no one snail mails their resume anymore?" But I knew it'll be perfect for scrapbooking experiments such as this. I sprayed this paper with water, crumpled it, and then sprayed it with walnut ink stain. Further distressing the page, gives it the look of old parchment paper.
Thank you all for visiting and your comments!
