Soul Journal pg 5-6 part 2


The application to Page 5-6 in my soul journal after taping, is to paint with gesso 1 side in white the other black. I don't have black gesso so i added carbon black to the white gesso and applied that. I don't know if it would have been a different finish involved but i get the idea. Then apply a color

I applied copper then touched it with peeled paint (a green color) stamping ink. It doesn't show up as well in the picture. The effect was like an aged copper. I liked it.

I am supposed to find a flower. You might think this should be an easy task. I don't have any flowers. my closest neighbor is 2 miles in any direction...this should be interesting.

The copper is beautiful! Do you have any wild flowers, or even a pretty weed? :)

Laugh - I was going to ask if you found the flower! I forgot all about this part of the task but I can pick some weeds in the morning - like you, I'm not growing flowers this year. Which is all good - I have money and time for other things!

Your page looks fabu!

What great textures you have. I love the distressed look. Well as long as it isn't on my face. Oh thanks for reminding me about the flower -- totally spaced that part. :) k

Your pages are amazing - I loved the transformation as we sanded and applied gesso and paint. I can't wait for the next stage!
