I love using text in my stuff.......old book pages, stamped quotes and verses etc etc so when I saw that CRUSADE 43 on MICHELLE WARDS challenge site was called TEXT MESSAGING I just had to have a go.
The prompt is to use text cut from newspapers or magazines and to use them as backgrounds. Here are my two journals with their random text glued in place.
Next was what to do to them next! I actually really liked them as they were but decided to be brave and go on!!
Here is the bigger of the journals........I cut a heart stencil and used both parts of it and sprayed through and round them. I like the way the newsprint I had used absorbed the ink, it made it look old.
Here is how it ended up! There were stages when I thought I hated it but I have to say I DO like it now!!
Here is the smaller journal.......this one was sprayed all over with green, then stamped onto and stencilled onto through sequin waste.
I just want to say thanks for the lovely encouraging comments that have been left over the last few posts, I appreciate them all..........I get the message, no more minimal for me!
