Journal Pages...Dresses




I found a dress form in a magazine. It was an advertisement for fabric and I fell in love with the various shapes and possibilities of creating dresses from my journal pages. This dress is made from a page out of my Big Juicy Journal.  I used ink and my craft paints to add color to the background. I used lots of gesso for the white circles. The circles where made with an empty toilet paper roll. I have this technique of  mixing the paint on a palate (usually wax paper) and dipping the paper roll in the paint and leaving the circle impression multiple times all over the page. I love the way the colors blend together. It it usually dries differently than it looks wet...so there is this element of surprise.
