I had the most fun yesterday following Juju Vail's instructions in the July/August 2007 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. First I cut out 2" squares of various printed papers and glued them in my journal. Then I drew some stuff on them. My idea was to show some of the clothing styles we wore when I was in high school. I'm still going to do something with the idea. But anyhoo, when it came to the 'old' varnish part I didn't have any so I substitued Amber Shellac and I love the stuff. (needs ventilation! so many good things do.) So this is the page as it stands. Smeary graphite, paint, grey Roma paper.
I also cut a new rubber stamp. I've decided to cut one stamp or stencil a day until I have a pile of new ones to make decorated paper out of. I think I'll use double sheets of newpaper with paint, stamps, stencils, etc. That should make some cool paper to play with.
Putter on, fellow doodlers.
