I saw Donna Downey happily dropping colorful paint in her journal at Collage Monday this week. That'd be fun. So I tried :). Only thing, I made my pages looked more bohemian. Ever so inspired by my post here. Especially that pretty cake!. Did I get it?. I sure hope so.
I wiped off most of the paint blops, worried my pages would looked too bright or too graffiti-ish. I did glue down old alpha thickers (which no longer sticking), just like Donna.
And dabbed gold ink all over these alphas to make them shiny and 'boho' looking. Lots of gesso, strips of pages from old book, paper doilies, stamping and doodling for the background.
Doilies, peeking. They take paint well, especially ink :). LOVE.
It's cool to work on a favorite theme once in a while. I play hard in my journal. Happy times!. I'll share a couple more bohemian journal spreads soon. Hugs.
