Yesterday’s failure is today’s success, or something close enough.
Not really my usual style, but I really like it. The white shape is actually the negative space from the bottom half of the swirl, traced in white and glitter gel pens. (The glitter is pretty sheer, but you can see it if you look closely.) The flowers and words are packing tape transfers from a catalog and the computer, respectively. (The words, “and be loved in return,” are of course a quote from Moulin Rouge. Well, no doubt they predate the movie, but that’s where I know them from.) Incidentally, did you know packing tape transfers are way easy? Much easier than the mod podge kind. Anyway, then I trimmed the page to 5×7 and added the border with a stamp made by wrapping string around a bottle of nail polish.
It’s not quite done, in that I have to glue down the transfers and get it to lie flat and things, but I think I’m happy. Which is good, because today has been very frustrating.
