Moths to a flame

Hi all,
I'm SUE RODDIS AKA JABBERWOCKY and it's time for my stint as guest designer here on the CREATIVE TEAM blog.

My first piece is a double page journal spread made in my A5 Moleskine journal.

I used one of my very fav techniques to colour the pages......apply gesso and let dry. Rub over with Distress ink pads.....I used Rusty Hinge, Olive and Black Soot......spray with water to mingle the colours. Let dry or help long with a heat gun.

Stamp fragments of the lace background around the edges, add cogs stamped over the top.

Stamp the open lightbulb image over some old book pages, cut them out. Stamp the cogs lightbulb over plain paper and cut out. Arrange the bulbs acros the pages and draw in hanging wires.
Stamp the small butterfly over book pages and cut out, arrange them among the bulbs.

Add some extra colour to the plain lightbulbs and butterflies using Distress inks and a water brush.

Ok that's me for now.......I'll be back later in the month with another project.
