The warm autumn colours of my April base turned out to be appropriate for the wonderful indian summer weather we've had this past month
I managed to keep up with filling in the days, but have been concentrating on stitchy projects this month, so it finished without many other changes.
For May, I turned to my new acquisition of Dylusions sprays. As I'm sure most of you know, they are wonderfully bright colours, and are making me so happy.
I'm even saving the paper towels from my experiments for later use ;-)
I had been really inspired by this Youtube video of a ghosting technique by Dylan Reaveley (creator of Dylusions)
I sprayed some gorgeous colours on my ordinary journal paper and had a go, but the ghosting didn't work as well as I'd hoped....I think it looks better in the photo than in real life actually.
I had been hoping for more regular spaces to write in. I wasn't sure if the sprays had soaked into my paper too much, so I gessoed my pages first
Liked that different look, and then tried again with the water.
Liking this as a background, including the happy accident that I hadn't cleaned the stencil first so when I tipped it over I got this lovely gold glisten transferred over on the right hand page.
I'm consumed with trying to finish a couple of stitching projects before an exhibition on Saturday, so here's what I've managed for my base page for May. I cut the letters and journal squares from the paper of the original trial. Imagine they are glued down!!
Come back 1st June to see how this page ends up. See other pages at the kathryn wheel, or check out our flickr group.
And I know I always say this, but Geninne's art for your desktop this month is especially lovely
