Thought I would show you something else of my process this time - a lot of you have been kind enough to let me know that you really appreciate seeing the pages develop step by step. It begins as always with a simple background - the turquoise blue acrylic paint and the yellow mingle together quite well, but they needed something more so I added white on top.
I snip them from anywhere and everywhere - I've even been known to chop up children's books from the charity shop. A favourite source is plain coloured envelopes that birthday or other cards come in. These provide a block of solid colour I can draw or stamp on. I pick much of my collage stuff up for free, and my Other Half is trained to bring home anything which looks interesting.
Then as you can see below I begin pulling out bits and pieces, shapes and colours, sometimes I punch or cut out shapes, just trying them in place. Some stay and get stuck down and some don't.
My recent pages seem to have become a little bit simpler - its as if I'm finally giving myself permission to have empty spaces? Or maybe I'm just lazy. It may well be both!
We're flying the Atlantic tomorrow for some much needed sunshine in Florida. In the warmth and sun I am always more well and in less pain, so this is my annual treat. Plus the ice cream is flippin gorgeous. See you in a couple of weeks 😎
