Darcy Month 4

When I saw Darcy's Paperartsy Journalling pages for May I just loved the colours and knew that I just had to get the same effect….. unfortunately, mine aren't quite as green, think that it needed a bit more guacamole?

I had great fun creating these pages - it was the first time that I had stencilled grunge paste onto material, not sure if it was my thing, but, I tried it… tissue flowers disappeared totally and my paint drips didn't drip that much!! at least I know how much water is needed next time!! lol.  I used patterned paper for the texture on my plain pages, typically I had had a de-stash of bits the week before the post went live!! lolxx (if you read the original post here you'll know what I'm getting at).

A big Thank you to Darcy for another great set of pages can't wait until next week when the next ones are published.

TFL xx

Gorgeous! your drips are just right, they aren't meant to be promiment, just a layer in the background. I even see some of your tissue flowers peeping through. I am so glad you are enjoying the pages. i am loving them too and learning lots myself.
