This Art Journal page is in my new bigger book.
Vintage paper background with a gel transfer over
the top of an art nouveau pattern
(bargain Dover book with cd of images
bought from a charity shop this week for 50p!).
You can't really see the pattern, but it
added the colour palette that I wanted.
I added Lumiere metallic paint on the edges,
and the butterfly is from the pile of
old photos bought from a charity shop
(charity shops rock!).
I thought the quote by George Herbert
(English poet 1593-1633)
was so sweet and so true.
