I worked in my journal as I am running out of storage/display space.
I prepared my background with some text by adding a dictionary page and some manuscript and then
I used PA frescos Mermaid,Sky, Chutney and Seaweed and spread with a palette knife on my background. Like Gillian I added grungepaste through a stencil.
Next I stripped some corrugated card and like Gillian added paint with a palette knife. I also distressed the edges with Black Soot, to give extra definition.
I cut some Kraft card and spread paint and added some script from a PA Hotpick using Coffee Archival.
I intended to use a butterfly stamp as a feature but believe it or not I have no butterflies in my PA collection so I used a little moth. I stamped the moth with Stazon onto sparkly card and mounted them with a brad through each one.
Then I found a sentiment that I like and mounted it and the word Dream .
I distress inked my grungepaste and then added the compulsory Treasure Gold Aquamarine.
It does not resemble Gillian's beautiful work but I have used many of her techniques and she certainly inspired me. Thanks Gillibobs!
