Glue Journal - Fashion spread

Here's the rest of the fashion spread.  My inspiration for this page was "putting together an outfit".  First the dress, then the shoes, bag, etc. I liked Hanna's suggestion of making "style" pages, but I didn't find enough to cut out for that.  I'll be on the lookout for future pages though. Happy GIT!

I attended CREATE NJ this weekend for two great workshops.  First, "Debris Journal" by Michelle Ward.  Here's a sneak preview.  I'll be working on this journal over the next few weeks. Check out her blog for more.
I also enjoyed Joanne Sharpe's "Artful Lettering from A to Z" class.  I've always enjoyed both lettering and watercolors so it was fun to return to something I used to do. Here's also a preview of what I've started.

Glue journal - Fashion

My daughter gave me a pile of fashion magazines so I went thru them looking for ideas to cut and paste! I started out with the face and then found the black and white zebra designs (My daughter likes this print).  Then I found the diamond pattern pants and nails!  Just a fun quick page that reminds me of my daughter. I'm working on the spread which I'll share soon.

Glue Journal continues

I continued the Blue theme onto the page across from my blue bird page. I started this one differently, layering and layering until the poppy image with red mulberry paper ended on top.  Once again, I covered layers of magazine page pieces with found papers in my scrap box. (If you look closely, you'll see a bicycle.) I'm really loving the simplicity of this!
I had an evening of quiet time, so completed the Zen spread next.  All pieces were from my scrap box or saved magazine pages.  The rose is a transparency, which now has found a new home. I like placing transparencies over text papers to see the layers underneath.
