I'm Dylusional again

I've been playing around in my DR Journal again.  This time I used orange paints, acrylic and spray paints.  Just making a mess as usual.  In my rainbow colored bathroom, of course.  Gesso was applied first combined with some red and yellow Claudine Hellmuth paints.  The color came out really peachy.  I covered most of the 2 pages leaving the edges a little bare.  I stenciled across the bottom with Dyan Reaveley's star stencil.  I used Reeves Crayons for the stenciling in the crimson color and then stippled a little of Mementos Pear Green ink over the area.  The balloons were stamped on water color paper and colored with Distress Marker inks.  I trimmed them out and glued them to the page.  The girl is pure Stampotique, her name is Top Knot.  The word "FLY" is also Stampotique.  The phrase is TH Stampers Anonymous collection.  The hand is cut from G45 paper and glued down with Glossy Accents.  Dyan Reaveley's leaves were colored in with Distress Markers.  The hand is tossing down leaves that were punched out of Inkssentials Foil Tape Sheet scraps and colored with alcohol inks.  I wrote in loopy handwriting my feelings about fall.  The leaves are falling so fast here it looks like it's raining LEAVES!
We are preparing for that big storm that is supposed to hit tomorrow.  Joe has been outside battening down the hatches.  Hope all of you in the path of  it will be safe and sound.  I just hope we don't lose power again!


  1. Beautiful! Love the writing on the tree and the one red balloon falling down. Good luck with the storm... we are ready, too (as we'll ever be!)

  2. I hope that storm only drops rain and dissipates away! Great time to make art though! Love the tree!!! FUN!

  3. Loving these pages, Renee. This journal is wonderful, isn't it?
