Another Alice in Wonderland themed pages from me today :). I decided to peek through the key hole and see what's beyond the gate :). Unlike Alice, I think about 6 'Possible' things before breakfast instead.
I wrapped the entire pages with aluminium foil and lightly gessoed them. This was the second time I'm journaling on aluminium foil. You could peek at my first try, here.
I actually made a 'key hole' mask with a paper. Colored the foil with water-soluble crayons. When dried, stamped over it with my diamond hand-carved eraser stamp, brushed with PLAID ebony stains. [You could do away with black acrylic ink or black gesso too].
Both pages are meant to be one large playing card. So, I added some red & bronze metal heart snaps on three corners.
Added a key, black & blue 'talking flowers' for dimension.
I decoupaged climbing roses from tissue papers.
Look great on the crumpled foil texture too.
Any metal foils are fun to work with. Gesso them first before doing any painting. Skip gesso if you're using alcohol inks. Have fun recycling those foils!.
