Journal # 3 ~ Gelli Covered Sketchbook

Hello sweet friends ~

This is a sketchbook I had purchased quite a while ago, which is hardbound.  And so I thought I would cover it also, using those beautiful gelli printed papers.  The detail photo below is from the front page.  OF course, I have used some black rub-ons, thermofax screens, stencils, doodles, stamps and the ranger perfect pearls paints on this one as well:
 The front cover:
 I've embellished with the perfect pearls paints in blue, and then added a black print from a couple of new stamps I've carved:
  {I do really love the dimensional look of the perfect pearls paint}  Surprise!  {not really, I know!}
 Front inside cover: 
I added some black doodles with my sharpie pen, and another image from a stamp I carved:
 Detail of the back page inside cover:
 
  I really like this piece of gelli-printed paper --- it's actually my favorite of the four gelli-printed and screened papers I used to cover this journal  which made it's way to the inside of the the back cover:
I don't think I will ever tire of blue and yellow together {it was also my high school's colors}!
And... I will never tire of adding beautiful swirly designs from thermofax screens either!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a good one wherever you are.

My whole house is blue & yellow (with some white thrown in). Love that combination -- it always reminds me of spring for some reason. Question: Just finished a spring wallhanging with a little bird who needs a black eye(well, you know what I mean). I'm thinking your pearl paint would work. Is it hard to do just one little drop? I know - practice, practice, practice.

Hi Leslie! Even though you were still in my Google Reader, I have not been getting your posts so I had to come check out your blog to see if you've been posting. You have and I've been missing out! I deleted you out of Reader and added you back in by clicking the Followers on your site. Hopefully, that will fix it.

Anyway, I had to see what you've been up to and it looks like you've been creating more beautiful and colorful works. I love it all!

Have a gorgeous day,
D~~~~

I redid google reader and the last post that the new and redone blog roll lists Minkee as your last post. Something isn't working.
