Inspired by Sue Bleiweiss
I love when inspiration hits! Sue Bleiweiss published this really interesting technique here http://threecreativestudios.com/freeprojects/tom/paintedlace_TOM.pdf
It is really hard for me to read about a technique and not start thinking of a way to put my own spin on it. It's just the way my mind works. So when she suggested painting lace after it was adhered to some fabric I thought wait. What if I paint the lace or doily first? So I laid out a piece of each on journals pages and then spray painted them. I love that the paint covers over some of the writing on the page. I don't really want people to read my journaling. I think it makes for a really interesting background. I would not call these journal pages complete but a really good start.
You'll have to stay tuned to see what I do with the lace!
