Places I go

Walk a mile...


This page has been in the back of my mind for a while.  The background I'd done some time ago.  I just scribbled with a green watercolor crayon and washed over it. I inked with the punchinellia, and went over it all with a blueish Glimmer Mist.

Then I covered the whole thing up with shoes!! I'm sure you can tell that some of the letters are stickers, some were stamped, and just a tiny bit of my own handwriting!

The Rodney I'm referring to, of course, the infamous Rodney King.

PS I'd been searching everywhere for the  punchinellia, Joanns, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby looked at me like I was crazy when I asked for. As did the lady at the florist, until the lightbulb in her head went on, and she realized what I was describing! Whoo hoo, took me a long time to locate it locally.

PPS for my brother and sister who may read this and still won't know.... punchinellia, is sequin waste. it's a piece of plastic ribbon that's the left over after they punch out the sequins.

Great journal page! And thanks for stopping by my site. It's good to have regulars keep following me on all my creative jaunts*L*

I love the total choas of the page, and, yet at the same time there is total balance and harmony. I really need to get working on my journal again. I have recently been bitten by the painting bug so have spent my time in front of my easel in my new art studio (in an apartment that is redone...again...)

Lovin' all your journal pages. What fun stuff! I haven't tried this yet (like I need one more project) but I think it needs to go on the List ;)

Thanks for dropping by!

Aw, if I'd known, I'd have enclosed some punchinella with Saffy! If you need things like that and shop online regularly, try Sky Blue - they have a weekly newsletter too, and their prices are really good.
I found them via Belinda Spiwak - Crazy Artgirl!
