Here we are betwixt and between
the two main events - I have heard
it called "Twixtmas".  Oh dear........!

Hazel Harler has brought us a
journal page to give us some
quality crafting time away from
it all:

For my collage piece I did a mixed media journal spread.

I collected lots of bits and pieces together

I glued my chosen bits into my journal.

Then I gave the pages a thin coat of gesso.

The pages were painted with Fresco Finish paints

I added some Infusions and sprayed with water - I didn't like the result

I used a yellow Inktense pencil and brush to change the result of the Infusions.
 I have no photos of the next couple of steps as it was getting quite dark.

I use an Impression Obsession background stamp 
with a green distress ink on the pages, 

I then spread sherbert Alchemy Wax over the raised areas then decided
 to spread it lightly over the whole project - it toned down the colours

A close up showing the Alchemy Wax.

I stamped the Impression Obsession background stamp 
onto white card with Leaf Green Archival Ink 
and then stamped the Paperartsy images with black Archival Ink. 

I tore the images out and glued them to the pages. 
I added some cotton and green gems, 

the words were stamped onto white card and cut out, 
I went round them with black pen after I'd glued them to the pages. 

I sprayed some brimstone wings Color Bloom 
onto card and punched out some butterflies

Another close up:

Thank you Hazel 
a fabulous page

Haven't touched my journal in a while so think
this project has me reaching for it............
Yes, I do type one handed when I have to!!

See you all again tomorrow
