Runaway Backgrounds!

I'm still on a mission to use the goodies I have. I go 'shopping' in a treasure drawer or box that I've created, where I've placed special and different ephemera, embellishments, papers. Every so often, I rotate the contents. It really DOES feel like walking through the aisles of Joann's or Michael's, digging through them. I'm writing so much I can't keep up with my current journal backgrounds ... happens. Ah. Mmmm. Yesssss. This image from the cover of the latest Newport News catalog. Her name would be TONI (aka Sirena). This is behind the Pier Girl flap. I found some vinyl patterned place mats at the 99-cent store, and used one of them for stenciling on this page. Heidi Swapp bird mask. Pole dancer stencil. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Who could resist? Not I, not I!

thanks for all the comments. I prefer a more english/country style garden too. More wild and crazy but i do love them all.

Great pages. I need to start collectin more scraps to put together great pages like that.

Hey Toni!
Great backgrounds you've created so far! It helps to get a few under your belt. I've been on a mission prepping my personal journal pages with gesso. I always have a piece of scrap paper beside the pages I am working on to try out pens, stamps, etc, b4 applying them to my page. I have used the scrap paper from my "tea garden" spread (inspired by you), for part of my background for one of your April personal prompts @ Calendargirlz!
Wonderful stuff as per usual, Toni, hugs and thanks! Vale :D
