I've been enjoying myself on Pinterest lately, admiring so many colors and creativity. To balance that out, I made dark mysterious journal pages about a girl who wanders in the dark :). I guess she is checking out the curious twine weeds!
I cut some twines, arranged and glued them to the pages like weeds. I hand-stitched the other one with black thread. Now it gets weirder. On opposite page, I made thicker weeds using some pumice gel (colored with red acrylic paint) by simply applied the gel over a chevron stencil to mimic the other weeds. Let dry for sometime.
Then dropped some black india ink over the page at random while generously sprayed with water (to spread the ink). Let the weeds be diluted in black ink as well. Also added some red acrylic ink into the mixture. Last I stamped a girl and doodled around her some assuring words with white gel pen. And some around the weeds. The quote seemed perfect for the mysterious pages, I think.
Basically, I just used a 2 color-combo for these pages. Black & red. Could be easily mistaken for a 'vampire' theme page!. Though too early for Halloween. I hope you'd be playing with twines too.
Have a good Friday!.
