I then cut out the images leaving a border so I could decide to use either side of the images depending on how it went with my journal spread.
I decided to use some watered down Dina Wakely Acrylics in Marine and Penny and spread them randomly across my page to create my background.
I chose a UHU glue stick to paste my structures down onto my page.
I stamped a Lynne Perrella image onto some cardstock to create a focal image. I drew a loose outline of a human shape and added some scrap deli paper to my "garment".
I cut out my figure and added her to my scene. I added more arches and scraps of deli paper to my collage to help create some depth.
Finally I used the 6" x 6" January 2021 StencilClub stencil by Mary Beth Shaw and added it to my background to give it more depth.
