Be Unique - junk journal page#17

Here is the other finished page that started out with just some pieces of scrap paper on them.



Here is the process of this page:

1. randomly glued strips of scrappaper on white cardstock      (if I would have been thinking I would have used a piece     of scrap cardboard)

2. gelli printed over it with a gradient of green colors, I like the ghost print as well, it even shows the pieces of scrap.
3. I made my own stamp with a piece of cardboard, string and glue
4. used a crunched up piece of tissuepaper as a stamp with purple acrylic paint and stamped all over
5. diluted some hot pink acrylic paint with water and added as drippage
6. finishing touches: the paperpieced Julie Nutting doll, some tape and the handwritten sentiment "Be unique"
While writing this post I thought of adding my fingerprint with ink, I saw this on one of the other entries of the Q&L challenge from Twinkle's twaddle, so thank you for this idea.

junk used:
* scrap paper
* dictionary pages

So here are the 2 pages that started out almost identical but both went there own way

    1. When I thought about the set-up for my blog that was one of the things that i certainly wanted to do, give step by steps, because when I visit blogs and see something beautiful I want to know how it as made. Also if I use an idea of someone else I try to give them credit if I remember.

  11. Beautiful junk journal page, love all the shapes and colours and especially your own hand created stamp! Very unique and inspired entry :-) xxx

    PLEASE can i ask you to turn off word verification, you can still view your comments before you publish them but this takes ages as i can't see the words properly. Taking time to try and crack this stops me from visiting other blogs because of the time it take. Thank you :-) xxx

    1. I'm so sorry, I wasn't aware that I had it switched on, I just turned it off, I too find it a nuisance, you just can't read at all what is written and yet I'm human and not a machine.

  15. I've tried making my own stamp using string glued to cardboard, and found it very difficult. I give you kudos for what you did. It looks fantastic. And of course, I like that you pulled a gelli sheet from all that junk paper.

    When I hear recycle, I get all excited, and these pages spoke to me. I'm here from the Craft Barn, but I like both spreads, which, I agree, are completely different. There's a sense of both randomness and order to them.

    1. Thanks, I must say the stamp is not exactly what I had in my mind, I wanted the circles to be neater.
