A Foray into Scrapbooking

My interest in mixed media led me to take a workshop in scrapbooking.  It was prepared by Manuéla – https://hazartblog.wordpress.com/2019/03/12/en-mars-a-latelier-2/

I knew I did not want to use photos so I cut some watercolour paper to the prescribed sizes.  We didn’t get that far.  This is what I brought home:

These were made with stamps:

The main lesson point for the evening was the use of watercolour.  We used waterproof black ink for the stamps and then painted them with watercolours.  The mandala was made with two embossing products, white on white, and then painted.

These are the materials I had left:

Plenty for making some cards which were also included in the lesson plan.

After thinking over the colours and motifs, I decided ink drawings of mushrooms would go well.

Additional materials:

…and also some black paper.  One of the reference photos is my own and the other two were taken by a good friend who went out into her garden especially for this project. ❤

The finished piece:

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
