Art, & a reminder to hug your people

The reminder first. A friend of Tony’s just rang. A few weeks ago he fell off the bottom rung of a ladder and fractured his skull. He was flown to Wellington and is recovering well at home, but the ending could have been very different. He was incredibly lucky. Life is fragile – hug your people.

Onto the art. The journal page uses an old family photo, Distress Oxides, a Tim Holtz stamp set, a scrap of Graphic 45 paper, and black Archival ink.

The smaller journal page is the latest #CMP18. I used Dylusions paints, a Graphik pen in teal, and stencils.

Long weekend? Art time

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!

#cmp2018 catchup – again

You know I’ve been either busy or sick when I haven’t blogged for 3 weeks! I was away, doing some wider profession work, for 6 days then had to get the paper done. Before I went away we had a storm and lost power for 24+ hours, right when I was preparing to be away. And so on…

Here’s the last 3 week’s of #ColourMePositive2018 – I used gesso, stencils, Dylusions sprays, texture paste, Graphik pens, and Dylusions paints.

CMP18 catch-up

I’ve been playing catch-up for various reasons. I’m using a wee 6×6″ hardcover journal this year and am enjoying the format. Distress paints, Dylusions paints, stencils, collage materials, Pitt Big Brush markers.
