Get Messy Thursday- The Preface
This week the journaling prompts were for the first few pages of the book, for the preface. My preface is about who I am, as you can see on the first page below. I used a photo of myself I took in Colorado, gesso’ed over the book page and made a watercolor background.
On the second page (the purple page) I used a favorite quote as well as a photo I took on Sunday of the Super Blood Moon Eclipse. I’ve been hoarding that purple star paper for a couple of years now (I love it) and I finally decided to use it.
This page uses a quote I saw on pinterest and basically describes me- “I have less to say than I thought”.
I used a Gelli print circle and doodled around it with a GellyRoll pen.
This last page might very well be my favorite (my nerd is showing).
The Get Messy prompt said to use a favorite quote, so I used the quote “Fire is Catching.” from The Hunger Games and made it a themed page. I am working in the Mockingjay after all.
I painted the firey background with acrylic paints, as well as the Mockingjay symbol. The circles I actually drew on with a good ole Crayola crayon. I love crayons. I have the 152 set of them that includes metallic and glitter crayons. 😉
