Anyway, I'll get off my box and get to the good stuff. Remember this from the last post? This was a portion of one of the collaged journal covers I made for my new journal. This collage originated from screen-printed deli paper, dyed paper towels and left over pieces of wrapping tissue paper. I repurposed it!!
I printed out a copy of it, tore it up, and now it looks like this! I used various colored tissue papers and mono-printed deli paper mixed in and this spread is one of the wide pages in my current journal I showed over the weekend. There is a fold seam in the middle as it is one of the pages that folds in on itself but I'm fine with this as you end up with two different pieces if you want to develop them separately. I think this might be the first of many more. This piece is just begging for stitching but I'm not quite ready to jump in.
Deli paper? I'm loving it!!!!! When you glue it down with Mod Podge, the unprinted parts blend right into the background just like tissue paper. With 500 or so in a box, toss away the ugly ones if you want! It won't feel that bad. Or, challenge yourself to add more layers until you do like it or just plain rip it up!
Gelli Plate printing??? Don't get me started...
I hope you are having a great week! See you Sunday!
