Altered Book: Stitched Goddess

pages from the noticing journal... an altered hardback turned journal

Here I used golden airbrush acrylics (i painted with them, didn't use an actual air brush - more about these here), liquitex gesso, golden fluid acrylics, pogo print of another art journal page (printed with a polaroid pogo printer), stitching with metallic embroidery floss. The darker patch in the center of the bottom photo is an acrylic "skin" -- to make a skin, let the acrylic dry in your palette and peel it off and cut it up and glue it to your page.

Acrylic pours! Oh, how that plays into my innate desire to pick at stuff until it peels. lol

I love the look of blanket stitch, and making paint skins on my palette, though I need to use them!

Beautiful! I'd never thought of using the acrylic skin before.
