Another Blue CJ

Right & Left Pages

Here are my two pages as my entry into one of our CJ'ers works of art. This one has a rubber stamp of an angel which has to be used in your entry and, apart from the colour 'Blue', you could do anything.

I wanted to keep a celestial theme so took two pieces of pale blue card and sprayed these with Moonglow mica sprays in various pale blues and silvers over a glimmer screen of a scroll until the desired effect was achieved. These were allowed to dry. I then rubber stamped clouds and the moon ( A stamp in the Hand) in Brilliance moonlight white across the skyscape I had previously sprayed. Very subtle effect, but if you look closely you will see these ! The main stamp of the angel was stamped in Brilliance mediterranean blue on the same blue card and cut out and given a light coat of Lumiere hi-lite blue paint. Before applying the cut out I selectively stamped just the wings in the same ink down the left hand side of the page as a border. The angel was adhered, leaving the wings free to curl and the finishing touches applied with gold calligraphy ink and a nib pen.

I liked the words I used, I had written them down in my little sayings book ages ago and they have never been used before. They were computer generated and printed onto a piece of ordinary copier paper. This was trimmed, edged with pale blue chalk ink and again given a coat of the Lumiere hi-lite blue paint. The edges were curled and the whole lot sprayed with hair lacquer to stiffen. This was applied as shown along with a couple of flourishes in the blue Brilliance ink. The page again has a border of wings.

The Sign-in Tag

To finish I decorated the supplied sign-in tag and applied a small piece of velvet ribbon in light blue.
Hope the recipient likes it :-)
