The Highs and Lows of Life

The next prompt for Joggles Art Journal Adventures will be posted later today so I'm just in time to post my response for the theme last week that told us to: include strong horizontal and vertical elements. I'm again working in my small 6 x 8" journal.
I used the L276 Corrugated Lines stencil by Stencilgirl Products,  and cold colours to make the background with vertical stripes,  and then added strips from a previously gelli plate printed paper to also add vertical lines with.  I used the same stencil but this time with warm colours and tipped on it's side,  to add the horizontal lines and again added gelli plate printed horizontal strips of paper.
The text was printed out using the computer and glued on in the spaces between the strips. I used Glossy Gel Medium for all the glueing.
This spread was simple to put together and I like the effect of all the interweaving lines. They remind me a bit of the skyline of New York. The words are my own.
