Art journal: Women and cats




Hi!
The starting point for this spread was a page on which the colors had bled through from the previous side. To hide the unwanted marks I covered the entire page with white heavy gesso.

The background pattern is die-cut; I repeated the same pattern a few times and tried to position the die so that the pattern would continue. Worked nicely even if the die wasn't designed for that kind of use (Sizzix Thinlits 'Mixed Media' set by Tim Holtz).

The contrast between the cream white background and the pink die-cut grid was too strong, so to soften the look I dabbed a thin layer of pink acrylic paint on the background, under the grid. Much better!


For coloring the digi images by Vera Lane I used alcohol markers (Promarkers and Copics).



And I love the quote; truer words were never spoken! No need to ask my hubby for a second opinion :D

Thanks for stopping by. Wishing you a wonderful day!
