123 Challenge for October

Happy October everyone.

Here in my part of the world, the weather is simply spectacular. I am often reminded of how lucky I am to be born, raised and live in this magnificent city.

But without further a-do, here is the 123 Challenge for October:
word=YOU
colour=GOLD
technique=LACE/LEATHER/SUEDE

A special Art Journal page!

The hardest part of all my Art Journal pages is finding that “magic” quote from an old novel. I think it took 3 novels and about 30-40mins to find this gem.

The LACE was coloured with alcohol inks and blending solution.

The SUEDE ribbon was attached using Helmar’s Fabric Glue (addicted to that stuff).

The word YOU has been hand-embossed and swiped with StazOn Jet Black ink.

I had no leather but did have a sheet of black vinyl so ran it through a die-cut machine for the leaves.

But you could hand cut them of course. I just wanted to see if it would cut the vinyl.

This image shows the grungeboard die-cut heart. I was disappointed the embossing folder marks kinda melted in this humidity so the effect is more subtle that I would have preferred.

So happy creating this month!!
