072116 WM#218 Bokeh
A favorite of Lisa's, bokeh is the effect from the way a lens renders out-of-focus
points of light. Most of us have seen this in holiday photos, perhaps of
strings of lights on a tree or garland. It creates a magical, dreamy backdrop.
WM#218 be inspired by bokeh inspired me to find a way to mimic the effect with paper.
I used vellum & punched an array of sizes of circles, arranged to simulate sunlight streaming in.
I'm not in love with the result but it was fun to experiment!
I used a spray adhesive which unfortunately remained visible.
(I have a note on my desk for a different adhesive to try for vellum... suggestions welcome!)
I mostly used my July "Hot Mess" CKC counterfeit kit, but grabbed a few
ribbons & stickpins for my journaling tag. Another fussy-cut bee from my October
Afternoon bug paper makes an appearance. This page will join others from a rest & relaxation
beach vacation in May so I don't feel the need to give a Who/What/Where narration.
If you've seen my kit you may be wondering where that riotous floral paper came from!
B side, baby! This is the flip side of the Webster's Pages puzzle patterned paper...
I really tried to dig into what was left of my kit.
Even the sentiment under the title was the branding strip from the yellow star paper!
Don't forget that there is a list of over 200 past WM prompts to
choose from when looking for interesting inspiration.
