Glue Journal - Red



Once again, I sat down with my paper scrap pile and Smash book.  (This is becoming a fun challenge.) These were all scraps -- the old text sheet was painted with a white-wash that I never used.  The French newspaper came from my friend, Linda.  The red paper in the lower left was made by me.  I took red craft paper and stamped with a cherry blossom rubber stamp dipped in bleach; then I added squishes of gold metallic acrylic paint.  I always liked this paper, so there was a scrap to include here. The frond was an experiment when I took Michelle Ward's Frond Chronicles class.  We cut our own stencils...so instead of stenciling I traced the stencil onto scrapbook paper and cut out a beautiful frond.  It didn't work at the time, but found a home here.  Read more here.

Thanks for visiting, and thanks for including me in the Glue It Tuesday fun!
