Grapes Art Journal Page

         Grapes were the inspiration for this art journal page, made for the Lindy's Gang June Color Challenge!


     All of the stamping was embossed with Lindy's Embossing Powder (Midnight Pewter, used on the grapes and ivy, and Oakleaf Olive, used on the circles).

     Then I glued down some fibers, and woke up the next morning hating it, and knew trying to take them off would ruin my page. So I added some hand-stitching, giving them the dimension I was after. Now I love them, and glad I stuck with it!

     Finally, the quote was printed onto clear vellum paper, and cut into strips, or rays, surrounding the sun, that I painted with a few extra coats of Yellow Rose of Texas Spray.

Thanks for looking!

  1. I simply adore that you shared how you created this spread. It was great to see it all come together, and the quote was the icing on the cake. It does seem to be a minor miracle how the sun can ripen grapes. You have turned this into a work of art, and it was fabulous that you shared it with us at Art Journal Journey, too.
