Getting close to the end of the challenge and the year! Started my October page like this
Wanted to focus on stitching, and this beginning encouraged me with my making a card-a-day for October : especially this one.
Happy with the completed pages (click on the pictures to see larger)
Was a bit stumped about what I was going to do for November, until I looked again at the cards I made with fabric paper. I loved the rich effect of the print behind coloured tissue, so began with collaging scraps onto the base pages.
I scrunched purple tissue, and then flattened it out a bit and glued it over the collage.
Love the layered look with the images showing through.
Used stencils for the page markings. The pages were quite heavy looking with the black until I added the white pen to the lettering - the secret is to always add the same 2 horizontal & vertical lines on each letter. Has made a difference don't you think? The butterfly is a rub-on.
The speech bubbles were made by running a black marker within another stencil. Love that I will be talking to myself this month! Not sure how what else will be added to embellish the pages, so call back 1st of December to see what's changed.
See the other entries for this month at the Kathryn Wheel, and the flickr group.
Have a great November
