When The Last Petal Falls

Simon Says : Layer It Up. My wonderful partner took me on a date Monday night to see the new Beauty and the Beast movie. In honor of that amazing date and movie I decided that for this weeks art journal spread I was doing Beauty and the Beast. The background started with old dictionary pages (hard to see through the photos, but slightly noticeable in person). I went over them with distress oxide inks, sprayed the page and let it dry. Then I went over it with soft body blue acrylic that had been slightly watered down. I added the random french book pages, went over the whole thing with a muddy gray dirty wash. Then I used the Inky Blue Vivid ink pad and stenciled some random clocks and shapes. Finally I took some watered down white gesso and splattered the page. I layered all the photos onto a rose patterned card stock. I tucked our movie tickets into little windows. Then printed the words "Until the last petal falls" tore them out and used a red permanent marker to highlight the edges in red. I used some red musical tape under the top right picture just for the effect, then I put it all together. I am very happy with how it turned out and am looking forward to having this tangible piece of memory from this amazing movie and date for years to come.
