A VINTAGE JOURNAL PAGE WITH INDIGOBLU
I am still in the learning stages of doing journal pages and I have found it hard to do them in a bound book. I decided to try something different and grab an old vintage sheet of music and paint and stamp and do the journal magic on it, then I can make a book out of them later.
Here is the front side of the music sheet and the back side that I took from my extensive collection of late 1800s and early 1900s vintage newspapers, books and music sheets. This piece is from the 1950s and is part of a book of songs suitable for school use.
Using a variety of Indigoblu stamps to create the desired look. Cover the middle portion with gesso and place a paper towel over it to mute the effect. Let Dry. Add your own wording on this portion with a black pen. For an added touch place a rub on where appropriate.
