We’ve had a wee break because the person who runs this had some family stuff she needed to deal with. Now we’re back into it, which feels good. I used Dylusions and Distress paints, various stencils, black Fude ball pen, white gelly pen, SSS ink pad. It’s one of those pages where what was in my head and what happened on the paper are worlds apart, but that’s ok – the fun is in the doing.
I thought this was quite fitting given my weight loss surgery journey has had some drastic and very unforeseen consequences, but has been worth every drama and detour. I used Dylusions paints, Distress Paints and inks, and a favourite StencilGirl Stencil.
This month’s theme is love and the quote was supplied. I’m using a new A3 journal Tony bought me, so this is big. I used Distress Paints, Golden fluid acrylics, 7 Gypsies papers, Pitt pen, stencils and washi tape.
This month’s theme is love, and I loved the week’s quote, so this came together easily. I normally do a paint, stencil & pen background with no collage or photos, but wanted to include a favorite photo of Tony. This was taken at Lucy’s Gulley, on SH45, in 2012 when we were having a weekend break from caring for Mum (thanks to my sister). I’ve used Distress Paint, Dylusions paint and a couple of stencils.
I love this week’s quote and was going to do something relating to the Muslim ban in the USA and other political happenings, but then realised art is my time out from all of that. So here it is, just another journal page that made me happy in the creating. Distress paint, Dylusions paint, Dylusions stamps, stencils, Fude ball and Posca pens.
Tim Holtz Distress Paints, Making Memories foam alphabet stamps, bubble wrap, Portfolio water soluble oil pastels, calligraphy pen, fine black pen.
I have been doing a little bit of crafting, just testing the waters to see how my wrist copes. In one word: badly! I can’t do much at a time and have to really pace myself but I am grateful to be able to do anything. I have been working in a circle journal using my Gelli Plate, Golden Hi Flow Fluros, Dyan Reaveley stamps (Ranger) and Glossy Accents.
I’m not normally one for pink, or flowers, but at the moment they make me happy so I’m going with it. This is a progress shot from a journal I’m working in as part of an art journal circle. Dylusions sprays, Distress paints, various stencils and gesso.
When I saw the art calendar challenge 2014 at The Kathryn Wheel blog I knew I had to join in; you can find all the details by following the link. I love Kathryn’s examples and we share a name, so how could I resist! I am working on loose sheets, 2 A4 pages at a time, and will bind them at the end of the year. I’m finding my work is increasingly detailed and fussy, which is not really me at all, but I’m enjoying it so who cares…
For these pages I used Dylusions ink spray and a Donna Downey stencil, then gesso and Tim Holtz Distress Paints with one of Michelle Ward’s stencils. I used archival ink to stamp some text here and there, and to add a fine black border round the outside edge of the pages. I used the Dylusions again,with two Tim Holtz stencils, the bubbles and the stars. I cut a bunch of 1.5×1.5 squares, edged them with black archival ink, wiped gesso across the centres, and wrote in the dates with a Stabilo pen. I stamped the month and year with black Archival and some old Memory Makers foam stamps, then added some details with a White Signo pen.
