Two more collage pages - inspired by One Crabapple images

Hi everyone. I have a couple more pages using the bits and pieces from collage sheets by an Etsy seller called Art Tea Life (One Crabapple). She has awesome sheets with separate body parts and other elements so you can creatively put together your own style of images.

The pages are almost traveler's journal size, just a little wider because I wanted the extra real estate for borders. The background started as fairly neutral but thin designer paper which I folded in half and punched with a planner punch so they could be disc bound.

The background was then stamped and/or stencilled with paint or Archival ink before clear stickers, rub-ons, and scraps of music paper were added. I used strips of paper, some pre-printed borders, washi tape...really anything that would work to frame the pages.

Penwork was added with black and white Posca pens. The butterflies and the semi-circles were punched, as were the flowers. Black Big Brush pen was used to darken the edges and further frame the pages.

The wording on the pages were Tim Holtz stickers which were adhered to the pages with additional glue so they would stay put.

Thanks for stopping by today. My quirky little friends and I appreciate that. None of us get out much...LOL.

Life is good; so is art.
