Yesterday it snowed here. Normally I would complain about this but since I got to stay home from work and play in the studio, I loved OKC's first day of spring.
I did some experimenting with CitraSolv which I'll write about in a couple days. And I used one of the pages to create the journal page you see here. Nothing elaborate, just an interesting background followed up with some irridescent orange paint, clear gesso, journaling and finished off with a generous spray of pewter Shimmering Mist.
Here's what the National Geographic page looked like after the CitraSolv, covering up some text with white gesso and pouncing on some gold acrylic paint (click to enlarge - feel free to copy the enlargement for use as a background):
And here it is with some irridescent orange paint and the journaling:
I also worked on a couple of other pieces - experimenting, gluing, painting and more. I'll post pictures when they're done.
I've had a great weekend - hope you did too ~ Sherry
