Grungy journal pages

Standard

A couple of pages from my Coptic-bound junk journal. I thought I might be tempted to work on one page at a time in this, but I can’t seem to help working in two-page spreads. The page on the left was blank, the right has part of a monoprint made using my Gelli plate and one of the new Michelle Ward stencils (love that the masks come with the stencils!) on colored paper. I wanted to fill the pages up and I think I succeeded. 😉 I tend to stop too soon on a lot of my pages. I gessoed the left page and scraped acrylic paint on with an old bank card. Lots of washi tape, a paint chip card, old book text, and journaling. And orange. Can’t seem to stop using orange.

Over the moon

Standard

Started back in on my splash book pages. These really probably need plain black and white images, but I like my Retro Cafe/Cemerony moon man here.

I feel compelled to fill the pages of these books but if I’m honest, I just like to look at their spines all packed together in the plastic container that’s become their home. Looks like there’s room for at least one more…
