While I'm away in the Czech Republic, I thought I'd share a journal spread I created in a journal that is part of the circle journal I've been participating in. It is made from gelli prints.
The two sides of the spread started off looking very different from one another.
Using a variety of stencils (Kae Pea's Tribal Leaves and Jane LaFazio's Pods) from Stencil Girl Products, I brought teal from the right hand page over to the left, and ochre from the left hand page over to the right. I added orange to both sides of the spread, as well as an element from Maria McGuire's Stitch a Greek Border.
Adding a wash to both faces with yellow tied them together even more, as did circles I punched out of scrap paper.
The journaling was inspired by a beautiful quote by the Buddha - "If we see ourselves in others, than whom can we harm?"
Here's a video showing the process.
