I love people’s hands, and am always checking out people’s rings, nails and so on – not in a judgemental way, just curious. This was done in my small Dylusions journal.
Paints: Ground coffee, Laidback lilac, Vanilla custard. Stencils: Sugar lumps, Blocks, Modern script. Stamps: Dy’s alphabet. Other: Distress ink, Stampin’ Up ink, white gel pen. Pitt Big Brush pen.
Still recording the lyrics I love. Pink’s songs really speak to the part of me that’s a bit broken – the food addict who now knows she used/uses food to smother her emotions. The spot on her chin is from my mucky fingers! (oops…) This was done using Dylusions products, which are some of my all time favs.
Most weeks I do a page or two in a small Dylusions diary; it’s about 8×5.5″ and lovely thick paper so there’s no need to gesso, the colours don’t bleed through and the pages don’t curl. I usually do a combination of collage and text; some of the tme I’m recording the lyrics of the music that colour my life, less often it’s inner thoughts (I tend to use other jounals for my inner world).
Well, really not so much forgot, as life got in the way. Long story and not worth sharing. But I *have* been arting when I can. And coughing, I’ve been doing a lot of coughing.
Pages in my Dylisions and Dina Wakley albums using Distress & Dylusions paints, stencils including Tim Holtz, Dylusions Dyary stickers and rubber stamps, ephemera, white gel pen, silver and gold Nuvo Mousse, Dina Wakley washi tape, Dina Wakley stamps.
It’s a four day weekend so, even after Tony and I went to Palmerston North yesterday, I’ve had heaps of art time. And I still have a spare day for paperwork, housework (maybe) and more art. How good is that!
