Make Friends by Dorthe Hansen

11:00

This is to be in the journal, too and side by side with the page I created (Mystery Awaits)
in same lavender tones, also on a piece of the great white card stock from Laura`s
journal pack.

I used the same colors painted over the page, (Lavender, Flat Matte Basil spray, Chestnut Brown, Black and Archival ink) to add some mystery here too.


I had a piece of grey sacking which I adhered to the page and when dry,
I stamped one of the lovely Wildflower stamps on top. Onto the branches,
I placed two crows using the Dinky stencil and between them, from the clock stencil 
I stenciled 12, also using part of the frame of the clock.


On left side page I used another Dinky stencils to make a 
raised pattern and when dry, painted it Grey and Lavender - 
I placed two boys from Tim Holz Ancestors on the sack, adhered swatches
of already painted papers, one of which I had stenciled Make Friends, 
using texture paste again. 


It is difficult to see but on right side of the grey sack, I used Seth Apter 
Baked Texture, Ancient Amber,- in real life it give a beautiful texture 
of golden amber. 


Lastly I also adhered pieces of very old cloth,which I also dyed 
using the Black paint.

Thank you all for looking,  writing this the sun decide to shine, and I wish
you all a wonderful new week. 

Hugs and love
Dorthe

  2. Oh Dorthe I love the concept of this journal piece, it's as if those words are speaking to each character telling them to be kind and like one another. I love how you perched the crows upon the wild flowers, a very clever piece of creativity.
