Hi there Polkadot!
I had so much fun making this page, I tell you. But even as many ‘OMG this is going all wrong’ moments 😉 The ugly stage is real peeps, it’s real.
Loads of fun! This is also part of a challenge by Joggles.com: the art journal adventure. I was planning to work with the collection pack of the 7 Dots Studio line: Fortune Teller, but I had no idea on which pictures I wanted to use. So I was thinking about the ‘doors’ challenge I still had to complete and BAM! I have this collage I made form pictures we took in Nancy, France, of Art Nouveau doors. I had already made one layout with stained glass windows, but I still needed to create something with the doors. So happy coincidence.
I can tell you it is a challenge for me to use these papers because they are really intense. Usually I start of a ‘mixed media’ scrapbooking layout with lighter, less prominent background colors. Not always, but most of the time.
For the color in the background I used this technique by Shirel that I really like. I’m sorry she doesn’t do video’s anymore.
I hope you like the outcome. I sure do 😀
