Not Everyone has Film Page

 We are staying with May's theme of Touchy Feely texture in The Documented Life Project 2015. The Art Challenge for this week is: cheesecloth, and the Journalling Prompt: Say Cheese. As you can tell I'm back to making an individual page to fit into my planner sized 7.1/4 x 8". And the Say Cheese prompt immediately made me think of photography of course! I started with heavy duty watercolour paper which was gessoed. Colour was applied and then removed through a stencil (from Balzer Designs View Master Bits). Remember View Masters? I am fairly sure we still have some of those image circles although probably not the View Master to see them. Must investigate!
Then I grabbed an old newspaper and collaged bits of it on, including a portrait of the "royal children". The photographer himsels as well as the film reel are rubber stamps from Creative Expressions. I also used sequin waste to add the large and small circles. Cheesecloth was added in selected places, and painted over.
The quotation too is a stamp from Creative Expressions and the dog image hanging on the wall came from a magazine. It somehow seemed to fit there.
