"on the edge" prompt no 5 altered book
The theme "on the edge" was chosen by Jaine this time. I got a bit stuck, I have to admit, but once I got started it was great fun.
The background is a collage of neocolors, paperstrips, gesso, acrylics and stamps.
Last summer I met this lady who was very sad because her peacock just died (a couple of weeks ago). She sold the feathers on a flea market in Sweden. When I told her that I would use them in my art journal, she got very happy and thought that her peacock Paul still would be remembered by somebody else but her. She made me a good price and now I have 20 feathers still waiting in the basement...
Anyway - this is the first page using one of Pauls feathers.
My "edges" are all decorated with washi masking tape(and one from Tim Holtz) - love the effect and the possibilities.
All stamps used are from Tim Holtz as well.
Wish you all a very nice weekend!
