Create Yourself

Hi Crafters,  Hope you enjoyed a nice weekend...I did!  A little crafting, sunshine and boating and good food!  For my Journal 52 this week I have used several new techniques for me and I just love them....first off is using deli paper for my gelli prints!  They are transparent, so you can layer them on top of each other or printed paper and build on them.  For my background I layed down some word print and music, then my gelli prints.  For my gelli prints I took a girl from a magazine and laminated her and used that as my stencil.  When I did my prints I ended up with two, the positive and the negative.  I had only planned on using one, but then thought about the quote and thought it really works with creating myself in a different way??
The Life and Cre8ing are chipboards that I painted black, the rest I wrote..  I used some other stencils and acrylic paints.

I did a bit of scribbling journaling in the girl on the right.  You can really see the papers underneath on the right side.
Thanks for looking and I hope you are inspired to be creative too.
