“Seeing red…”

Mixed Media Monday (theme chosen by Beth) and for Sunday Stampers #117 too. Normally seeing red would get me mad, but I found it oddly therapeautic making red roses on this spread – a la Rennie Mackintosh. The page was a mucky beige to start with, in my LTS journal, and I had red Tempra paint which I splodged on one page and then closed the book, squishing the pages together to produce round, textured blobs of fairly thick paint….

Be Beautiful!

The swirls and text are foam stamps from Papermania which I use frequently when I’m working BIG! The latin text is from MaVinci again – one of my faves… I used black paint for the text and blck ink for the swirls. While the red paint splodges were still wet, I also stamped into them with the latin text stamp, which is why you can see red texty bits too!

The mauves and blues are Neos and the white doodles are made using my Posca paint pen. This was so much fun to do, but I must go wash my hands and arms before I can leave the house!!!!! :0)
