Julification with a Toni Twist

Used collage images loose on my desk, all from The Tuscan Rose ... love this page. I sanded the edges, here, before darkening. All edges are watercolor crayon with gel used to move it around, then texture added. Texture tool with aqua paint on it to create the spikey corner 'drips'. My color inspiration was seeing an aqua/teal colored belt of mine up against a dark green dress and a pair of cream capris. I wanted to try a retro-feeling page ... collage images are from The Tuscan Rose. I love to take bottle tops and make paint rings on my stuff - that may replace drips, for me. I also sanded the edges of the paper after a layer of polymer gloss gel, before I darkened them. Slide mount image/word is from one of my word play sessions. Phone book scrap, license plates image from The Tuscan Rose.

I am going to say it...

These are my FAVORITE so far...

I absolutely love these, the cool blues/greens, those rockin' girls, and the junkyard dog...

Love it, Toni!!!
