Geez Louise!

So I've been a little absent. You know the drill. Work, family, life.....

I've still been creating but in a different form lately. If you follow me on Instragram then you know I'm a little obsessed with collage and paint at the moment. I've enjoyed letting go and just making some mess on canvas. Very liberating!

But here I am again with a scrapbook page. I approached this one a little differently. I applied some of the things that I've learned about collage to this page. They are subtle differences but it made a big impact for me.

This page is about the day I met an incredibly creative and inspiring woman. A most amazing day spent creating with products I've never used before.

I approached the page messily, NOT me at all!

Staples, scrunched up tissue paper, half-hidden embellies, ink splats (with Bombay India Ink which I am happy to say I'm not scared of anymore!).

As with the tissue paper and tassel, I tried to include lots of texture, adding muslin as a layer, a doily and stapled vellum over one of the patterned papers.

More staples and zig -ag stitching adds further interest.

I've done lots of these things before but this time it was a little more deliberate, thinking of the layers and textures I was choosing.

I had so much fun creating this page. The colour palette I used was inspired by Scrap The Girls challenge this month:
