Geisha Girls Art Journal Spread Part 2

Earlier this month I shared a journal page which was the center spread for a Deconstructed Art Journal Swap I was participating I am sharing the front of my created signature with you.

Once more I am using one of the gorgeous Geisha Collage Images from Altered Pages, teamed with some left over G45 Papers from the Birdsong Collection.  I have used two different papers to cover the background and a couple more for accents, before adhering my chosen Geisha and then adding some black paint followed by some Metallic Rub On around the edges with my fingers.  I then sealed the surface using Gel Medium.

The back page of my signature I kept fairly simple, given the pattern paper was busy and bold.

Supplies used.

Gel Medium
G45 Birdsong Papers
Geisha Girls and Geisha Collage Sheet
Black Paint
Metallic Rub On

AlteredPages also has lovely Asian papers, click here to see them.

And here's a look at all three pages in order.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
