Playing in the purple journal.

Creating a page incorporating a photo from a very talented photo artist Chandra Lynn sent via a photo swap.  My desire was to keep the page simple as to not detract from her gorgeous photo.  For the background I glued down crumpled purple tissue paper.  Thinking it was too plain I found a sheet of deep navy tissue paper which I sprayed with Perfect Pearls spray in pearl before gluing down.  The crinkles give the page some need texture. 

Using ribbon to frame the photo:

I was trying to match the leaves in the photo which have a touch of olive.  I sprayed the olive vine first with Distress Stain in hickory smoke.  It did not mute enough of the green so after drying it I sprayed it with Perfect Pearls spray in pewter.

Allistair was determined to "assist" me but became distracted playing in the paper.

And again as I was add the ribbon.

Give away reminder:

 Help me find the perfect title for this purple art journal.  If I use your suggestion I will send you an 8x10 mixed media piece, in purple of course!  Go HERE to leave your suggested title.


  1. Allistair is a star and your page is beautiful!

  2. OMG! Rocking the purple this week! I am going to have to drag my purples out and give it a go! Beautiful fur baby! My 3 girls are usually in the craft room with me watching every thing I am doing! Got to get it right!

  3. I'm lovin' it! And it looks like Alistair is lovin' it, too!
