Journal page Just a number.

I don't usually share my journal pages cos most of them are sort of personal to me and my life. Although this one is in reference to all the birthdays we have in this family during the next 2 months I loved how the background worked out so I thought I would share it!
I have been making lots of backgrounds using lots of 'bits' from my un-used scraps of stuff I have made and not finished!
So the background is made from scraps of paper, card, embossed card (tims folders) all stuck to the pages with glue stick, washed over with watered down gesso and coloured with paint in places and dried.
Distress ink in frayed burlap was smooched around in places.
7 Gypsies tape, sticky numbers, stamps, stencils, rub ons and small pieces of corrigated card were added.
Black pit pen doodles and coloured pencils were added.
Lastly a little boy sitting on a table from a vintage image cd from Tuscan Rose, with added wings and a crown.
I had a lot of fun making this and my 'bit' box is getting used up too!
