MY JOURNEY...


Ciao a tutti e bentornati su queste pagine...con un nuovo look...ed un paio di nuove Sfide...

Hello and welcome back on these pages...with a new look...and a couple of Challenges...

Ho finito il mio art journal/libro alterato...e prossimamente ne decorerò la copertina. Per il momento vi mostro l'ultima pagina, dedicata al viaggio...perchè questa pagina ne ha viste di cose passare...una cartina della Terra di Mezzo per una sfida che non ha visto la luce...una buona dose di gesso nero e della Modeling paste con uno stencil della Florilèges...un'altro cambio di rotta e giù di gesso bianco ed inks spray (TommyArt e Lindy's) e finalmente la conclusione, dai colori vintage...

I have finished my art journal/altered book...and soon will decorate the cover. Meanwhile I show you my very last page, dedicated to the Journey...because this spread went through a lot of things...a Map of the Middle Earth for a challenge that never saw the light...a good amount of black gesso and Modeling paste through a Florilèges stencil...another change of heart and direction with a lot of white gesso and spray inks (TommyArt and Lindy's) and finally the end with a vintage feel...




Juta, pezzi di cartina, sughero, filo, vellum, cartone riciclato, dei rub-ons ed una piuma fatta di 'Shrinkie'...è stato proprio un Viaggio Inaspettato per quest'ultima pagina ma, come sempre, è stata anche la parte più divertente...

Burlap, pieces of map, cork, thread, vellum, recycled cardboard, rub-ons and a 'Shrinkie' feather...sure it has been a truly Unexpected Journey for this last page but, as ever, has been also the best part...






Presento questa pagina per le seguenti sfide..../ I submit this page to the following Challenges...
MORE THAN WORDS JUNE CHALLENGE: JOURNEY & MAP:
This page is all about my JOURNEY...not only strictly speaking, though I incorporated various elements connected to a travelling theme, such as a tag made out of a map, suitcases, a plane, a globe...but first and foremost is about my creative journey...where I start and my final destination are very often two very different things...and that's what I like about that...totally unpredictable... completely unexpected and yet so personal.

- A VINTAGE JOURNEY JUNE CHALLENGE - STENCIL IT
This lovely stencil is hidden under all those inks, gesso and whatnots...but you can still see it!


E questo è tutto...ci si vede alla prossima!

That's it..see you next time!

Kisses&Hugs!
Simo.
