On the Meridian

Here is another page I made with some of the lovely Marion Smith Nirvana collection, and I did get quite messy with it!  Here is the pin that inspired me…pin - it is someone's artwork so I didn't want to copy the image here :)

So I started with a layer of gesso in a V shape and then my gelatos. There is a small circular sponge tool that you can get with them, I damped this and then popped loads of circles in that V shape all over the page in blues, silver and a some gold.  I had a look and wasn't too keen on the very spotty effect with my pictures, so I added some more gesso, and then smudged in gelatos and spritzed with water and then some cosmic shimmer paint to get drips….and this is the rather messy background I got as a result.  I next went to work cutting out little pieces from the Marion Smith papers like the hot air balloons and little tags, and added some 7 gypsies cogs as well as prima lace, and behind the photo is a little journal card - Remember this - all cut out from the papers.  The title is from the Glitz Finley collection.

Even though the page didn't quite turn out as I had imagined in my head, I quite like the mess, and enjoyed making it!
