From Donna's video, I wanted to try adding text pages and letter stickers. The pages are in French and I loooove them, my friend Anna gave them to me. Unfortunately as I added layers of paint & gesso, I pretty much obliterated any trace of the fabulous French text. As for these letter stickers - they came in a kit at some point and I think they are super ugly, so, I was happy to cover them up!
If you look closely, you can actually see a teeny tiny trace of the text in this picture. :-) The hearts were die-cut from some fairly thin packaging chipboard I pulled from the recycling bin. I added lots of Claudine's paint, letter stickers and a bit of platinum Stickles here and there.
In this picture you can see a close-up of those painted-over letter stickers. I love the texture they add to the background. I added the Girl with a Pearl Earring with matte multi-medium and painted around her. Unfortunately it seems I covered her pearl earring - oopsie. The word "art" is stamped with the Hero Arts set My Words.
Still loving the art journaling, yay!
