tattoo


This is a mixed media collage on a journal page. The prompt was "tattoo" and it came from the Yahoo Group I belong to "Blissfully Art Journaling"
Of course if I ever was to get angel's wings tattooed on me, they would be much, much smaller than this, but I like to dream of a different me sometimes.

The method was scrapbooking papers painted over with black and white gesso. Computer printed image and title. Roses are magazine images. Stamped with black ink and white gesso. Decorated and written with white souffle pen.

Gorgeous job, 3M! And so ingeniously resourceful to do a 2-fer on your lovely book journal you sent overseas.

Thanks for your kind compliments on my red nude 4x6. I can't quit doing them now...there will be more, lolol. Oh no! winkwink

xoxo,
Aimeslee

Love this piece, you've created quite an atmosphere, I particularly love the work you do with the white pens, quite your thing, fab! do you mix the black Gesso yourself or do you buy it like that? I've heard it mentioned before but never seen it here.Mx

It's so fun to read the process discussion and really look at the piece bit by bit to see how it came together, versus the "gestalt" view we usually take. (p.s. Came here from Bridgette's site).

I love angel wings too. I am not very wild at heart either. Beautiful page.

Hi,
I'm a newbie at Blissfully Art Journalling and am catching up with everyone's work. All of yours that I've seen is appealing. I particularly like this one. The black and white suits the subject.
There is definitely room to dream in this one.
Cheers - Suzanne
