partner journal




These pages are from the partner journals that I am doing with Wendy from http://wendypslittlecorneroftheworld.blogspot.com/


The theme for these pages was where we lived, grew up, came from, etc.


The 'provenance' page is a vintage book page, printed photos, gesso, watersoluble crayons, rubber stamps and black inkpad, pencil, sharpie, and written with Faber Castell Pitt Artist pen.


The 'bakery' page started with scrapbooking paper, then I built up the background with gesso and watersoluble crayons. Then I added the brochure images of bread and buns and the printed photos. The 'bakery' letters are stickers. I then decorated with punchinella and flourish stencils using liquid pencil, white ink, black ink, brown ink and orange souffle pen. The writing was done with Faber Castell Pitt Artist pen.


To anyone interested in the layers beneath, below is a scan of the 'provenance' page before I added the elements and decorations.
