U R U - Shine!

 Lindsay's Stamp Stuff's School Papers Set over at MyGrafico - YUP!  I'm continuing to work with this set!  I also have several Art Journaling Pages at least started!  Today I would like to share this one with you!  I like to call it U R U - Shine!  I did several layers of inks, chalks, gesso, modge podge, papers, glue, glitter, tape, etc.  As you can see I used a head from one magazine ad and added it to another body.  Here's an INSIDE BIT...the body is CARROT TOP!  LOL  I like to think of this as complex, conflicting, unique and both a little masculine and a little feminine - kind of like me - as I am not much of a girlie girl!
 Here you can see one of the papers I used from Lindsay's set.  I also FINALLY used this large grungy flower embellie I think I have had for nearly 6 years!
 And here's another paper of Lindsay's!
 And these next several pics are from unfinished pages I am working on also using Lindsay's Papers!  The one above is on a lighter colored paper/mixed media background.  As you can see I have these papers going every-which-way!
 This is another one and I used a scraping technique to blend this paper with the other papers and inks and gesso and let dry.
 And this is a darker and grungier background type page I am starting using her papers - so sorry it's hard to see the paper in this one, but you got the idea!  I really LOVE grunging these out!  I will be researching Art Journaling Prompts, soon, too!
Thanks for stopping by!

I am in awe, it looks like an old book in some spots! How did you keep the ink on the papers from running? Well done!

Thanks Lindsay! I used Gesso & Modge Podge - dried - added ink layers - laid flat - dried - added more gesso - dried - added more - partially dired and scrapped or moved the inks and papers around that sort of thing :)

I couldn't help but chuckle, I remember Carrot Top, I looked him up a few years ago and he'd changed a lot; he got buffed, lots of plastic surgery too. The card looks awesome... as usual.
