While I'm away in the Czech Republic, I thought I'd share a journal spread I created in a journal made from gelli prints.
The two sides of the spread started off looking very different from one another.
Using a variety of stencils (Kae Pea's Tribal Leaves and Jane LaFazio's Pods) from Stencil Girl Products, I brought teal from the right hand page over to the left, and ochre from the left hand page over to the right. I added orange to both sides of the spread, as well as an element from Maria McGuire's Stitch a Greek Border.
Adding a wash to both faces with yellow tied them together even more, as did circles I punched out of scrap paper.
The journaling was inspired by a beautiful quote by the Buddha - "If we see ourselves in others, than whom can we harm?"
Here's a video showing the process.
