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.

I think I see the bicycle!! And ohmy... transparencies! It's been ages since I worked with one... I think I have one or two leftover from my scrapbooking-days... would be fun to use them now. Happy "Glue it Tuesday" on Wednesday ;)

transparencies create their own sort of magic, don't they? This came together so well!

I love the blue and the red together, Betsy. I got a new feeder not too long ago. Then we went on vacation and they hadn't really touched it so I was thinking that they just didn't like it or something.

But when we got back, it was half gone! So somehow they got in there. (Either that or that dang little chipmunk figured out how to get in there! ;) )

I found your glue pages through your link on Glue it Tuesday. I am new to glue books. I selected a large sketch book that was waiting to be used. I have been doing a 2 page spread each week. Looking at your book I am inspired to simplify not only how I approach my page but to try completing a single page. Thank you for sharing. I looked through all your pages, the blue is very soothing.
