You may not believe this, but the truth is, not until after I posted the Hubster's card yesterday did I realize that I've had purple and red on the brain and that I've also apparently been working hard at using up those rub-ons. I just didn't realize I had a running theme in my art head, winkwink.
Stencil Girl's peacock feather stencil and grey Lumiere paint. I plan to one day highlight the feathers and color the center *eye* of it, but I lost the patience to do it that day.
The next thing I wanted to do was to apply strips of masking tape lengthwise, to create texture and depth (and strength).
I've gone back and checked old journal pages I've coated with Royal Coat, and they are not at all sticky. In fact, NOTHING I've used RC on is sticky. That proves it to me.
Okay, off my soapbox now. Sorry, I get passionate about it.
I'm going to go ahead and enter this journal cover in the GC138: Masking Tape challenge over at Gingersnap Creations blog. One of their design team samples used washi tapes, and floral tape is pretty much flimsy gummy masking tape, just skinnier, so hopefully it won't be disqualified.
