The image of a girl looking up at the sky is a gel transfer from a photo of a friend taken by my daughter. I tried to create the impression of peeling layers like the peeling posters one sees in all cities and which I find intriguing - like a palimpsest of city life: ah, there's a word for letter P!!!
My dictionary definition is in a book-plate from a Tim Holtz die, decorated with Grunge Paste through a 'chicken wire' Crafters' Workshop stencil and painted with Treasure Gold - White Fire. I stuck little embossed butterflies, embellished with gems on my page to create the idea of either flight or that nature is always trying to break out in the city. I stamped on a Vaporetto ticket from Venice from Stampington's 'Butterfly Girl' and Lynne Perrella images of cities.
I added Paper Artsy images and a distressed tag attached to the corner of the page with an eyelet and a gem. My secret journal message 'At the heart of the city something stirs' is on the back of this!
Here is another of my embellished butterflies, stamped from a Paper Artsy image once on the page and then again on painted card, embossed with mixtures of Verdi Gris; black and gold and sparkle, embellished and added to give a 3D effect/
The images of faces are from a Tim Holtz 'Stampers Anonymous' plate and I added these to give the impression of the glimpses of faces in the city crowd. Just above the building is a punched out stamp with the words, 'Wings to Fly' embossed in silver, from a Paper Artsy 'Ink and the Dog' set. Thank you for stopping by Magpieheaven for my third Dictionary Challenge. Have a lovely, creative day. I'm off to enjoy the other creative gems of the Alpha Dictioneers - if that's a word!
