First Time ? 8/30

"When was the last time you did something for the very first time?" Loved this sentiment! Another one of my new Tim Holtz stamps inspired this page. There were a couple of "firsts" on this page. I drew the rose from my Secondhand Rosie pattern packet onto tissue from an old sewing pattern using a brush tipped Pigma pen in brown. I also used the Tim Holtz masks with Decorating Chalks for a very subtle pattern. Let's see if I can show some of my steps for this journal page.
The page had the background started (companion background to yesterday's journal page). TH masks were placed on page and various pinks & brown layers of chalk applied. Once chalk was finished, the masks were removed and a light spray of Fixative applied to set the chalk.
Next layer is embellishment. The Paris embellishment is a stamped image over a Gelli print, various dye cut tags & elements, a piece of tulle with an embossed image, a silk yoyo over a small crocheted flower. There are 3 small freehanging tags from K & Co.
The main stamp was applied early on for positioning but some dragonflies were needed (of course!) and the tissue paper was glued to the upper right corner. Dated & done!
