art journal page – a house without books (journal52)

Windows3Do you ever get working on a page and then forget to take pictures of the process to post on your blog?  That’s me today so this is it.   This is week 6 of Journal52 and the prompt was “Windows”.  I thought I had an idea for this page but while I was looking through my stash, I found this photo I took a few years ago while out on a hike with friends.  I started with gesso and a layer of teal and white acrylic paint.  Next I stenciled the “cracks” and stamped the grid pattern with teal ink.  I glued down the black cardstock and layed down the drywall tape.  The photo was glued down next.  I layered the lace and ribbon along the bottom of the photo and arranged the flower embellishments.  I finished it off with doodling around the edge and adding the quote, “A house without books is like a room without windows” – Horace Mann.
