Dusty Attic November Inspiration - Journal - Paradise is a feeling - Kristy Abela

 Hi FanAttics

I created this project while my local government area had been put into HARD lock down, meaning no leaving the house AT ALL unless its for groceries or medical emergencies. So when you see my page you are going to understand that these kinds of pages are created when you take for granted being able to connect with the ocean. I am so grateful for the Vaccination status of NSW and I have since re-connected. The ocean sets my soul free and I'm mustering all my happy vibes to get my HSC guy through the next few weeks... 

The background was created by my brayer and water soluble crayons. I used a stencil to create areas of interest and then used white gesso to calm down the noise in the background and help focus the eye. 
I added some collage papers to the background to build a focal point. I also used some metallic paste to create texture.

I used my hack to thin down chipboard. Take your scalpel and gently run it through a layer of chipboard on the back. this makes it thin enough to use in your journal. go slow and remember to not go too thin on the first attempt. you can always take more off but you cant out it back on... 

I used some chalk paints and a sponge to add colour and create a smooth transition between colours. 

I used some calico and wood wool to create a base for my photo. I tore the photo and inked the edges to create a frame and places a word sentiment on top. Thanks for looking and I hope you use chipboard in your journals too...
