This is my (rather late) RR Journal page for Heidi. Heidi had an open theme for her journal but (I hope) I know what kind of thing she likes. The page is created from mountboard and I've cut a recess for the figure, backing it with regular card. I've added freehand embossed aluminium on the left, which I painted with black acrylic and wiped off when almost dry to age it a bit, then added some metallic rub-ons over the top to add a bit of colour. I painted the page with black acrylic (bronze in the recess), added some book text and painted over the top of that with an acrylic/PVA wash, then added some clear UTEE on the right hand side and stamped into it. I then went over the top of it with various colours of metallic rub-on and set it. The head of the figure is moulded and I pressed a metal chain into it for texture. The body is a poker chip painted black and covered with metallic rub-on. The wings are Grungeboard painted in silver acrylic, the arms are wire with beads on the end, and the legs are made from wire and sea glass. (I spent my entire holiday this year picking up bits of glass from the beach - they must launch a lot of boats on their maiden voyages from Brixham!) The word "fly" is Grungeboard painted with silver acrylic.
To those of you I still owe journal pages to (Cindy, Sherry and Yvonne, I think), I am really sorry for the delay. They will be done as soon as I can find some inspiration.
