It was a lot of fun to create my Mixed Media South of France Journal, and a lot of work but I loved creating it with picture from France.
Here is the video for page 5 on how I made the pages.
Here is the original picture that I started with:
The background for the journal was ink dyed using the All Purpose Inks from TSC Designs. http://stores.teacherstamp.com/inks/
The lower left pockets is covered with black organza over the picture. It gave it an interesting depth to the picture.
I used strips of foam sheet behind the picture to raise it from the background and create a pocket.
The lace flower was ink dyed with the All Purpose inks. I made alcohol ink spray in green by adding the All Purpose ink to 1/2 of little spray bottle of isopropyl alcholol. Use at least 98%.
And here are the finished pages.
I wanted to create lots of pocket to keep memorabilia from her travels. I put dummy tickets to show where the the pockets were located and even added a touch of whimsy – a Chuck E. Cheese ticket!
I hope this has inspired you to create something out of your normal comfort area.
