DLP 2015 Weeks 5 (What Lies Beneath) and 6 (LAYERS)

oops forgot to post last week - oh well, I am showing off on Facebook and Flickr so I think most of my peeps have seen these via other channels LOL...
Week 5 challenge was to use "under papers" on your journal pages. Tried a few things and practiced my "writing". 
I really did not have any so used a colorful left over baby wipe instead - that's the background of my ooh la la miss. 
She is a "play" on the theme "What lies Beneath". :)
Week 6 and a new month. 
February Theme
Layers You Will Love!
February 7
Art Challenge:  When Not To Stop
Journal Prompt:  "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough!" (Ooh)
I had several ideas until I finally settled on doing a "grunge" layer look this week. I found her in a 1950's life magazine and used the acrylic paint transfer technique from McElroy and Wilson book Image Transfer Workshop (see other examples here and here). She really turned out quite well - it is one of those techniques you just never know if it will work! 
I thought the old Victorian card matched well and I really did not want to do any writing this week ...

All in all another pretty good week for DLP! Enjoy. Jewels


  1. Great contrasting pages Jewels, tho' I admit to liking this vintage style one best ;) I love the background very much too xox

  2. These are both wonderful pages, Jewels - I see something new in them each time I look! That is a great transfer, you've inspired me to have a go with more transfers.

    Looking forward to seeing what you do for Week 7....


  3. I'm sure I read the acrylic paint transfer post back when you first did it but it just seems crazy t hat it works until I stop and think about it. Gel medium is just acrylic paint with no pigment, so, duh - of course it works. The hints of paint coming thru are cool.

    I like both your spreads, but the pink foundation one cracks me up. Can you image wearing something like that every day? My god...
