The Inspiration Wednesday videos are every other week. This week Donna Downey pulled out some joint compound tape, and applied it to her pages. Hmmmm. I didn't have any on hand, nor did Cathy. In case you are wondering, joint compound tape is the tape used in putting up dry wall, to join two pieces of dry wall together prior to the application of the mud. The tape has evenly spaced holes and is sticky. I did have punchinella in my stash. Punchinella is a thin metal with evenly spaced holes, left by the removal of sequins. In the fabric world, it's called sequin waste. Aren't you glad you stopped by today?

The punchinella is the color of the sequin that was manufactured. Mine happens to be red, so I had to put a thin coat of gesso over it, after applying the metal with matte gel medium. If you look closely at the photos, you can see where the punchinella was applied. Love the texture, and how it grabs the paint. The plan is now to try this in the larger art journal with another spread.

Have a great weekend.
