This spread started with an interesting magazine page I came across when searching for letters to use in a previous spread. I ripped it out and placed it on my desk and left it. When I came to work in my art journal again, I started by ripping around the edges of the picture so it would fit my journal page. Once it was attached to my journal, I spritzed it with water to distress it.I painted the opposing page with Halo blue-green Lumiere.
I brought some of the blue-green paint over to the other page with the magazine paper.
I added more water and rubbed the paint around and onto the magazine paper as well.
Over the painted page, I placed a photo of my husband Steven looking out the window on the floating chapel we went on last week, and my chosen affirmation. Both were printed on a clear transparency sheet with my inkjet printer and attached with my xyron system. The "sail" and sailboat is a subscription card to Sail Magazine I picked up when walking the beach with Steven not too long ago. I made it into a tape transfer with packing tape on the front and soaking and removing the paper from the back. That is why you can see the green paint through the sails!
I added white netting over both pages, and there is also a bit of a map design paper napkin (one layer only) on the bottom of the left page. The green thing hanging down is a little compass Steven found on the beach that was attached to another page. I sprinked a bit of light blue stardust glitter on to tacky glue on the white netting (click for details).
