I am continuing to journal with Alison’s old family photos, building the connection I have to her memories. I’m doing the pages using bits of this and that, getting rid of stashed supplies! Love my new Dina Wakley journal because it has a variety of pages including burlap.
This week’s colour is blue, and the quote’s another good one. I used Distress paints, Dylusions paints, collaged papers, Graphik pens and stencils.
This week I used Distress and Dylusions paints, black Fudeball and white Posca pens, StencilGirl stencils and Simon Says Stamp inkpad. This quote is so true for me – art time is part of keeping myself mentally and spiritually well.
Playing catch up after spending last weekend in Auckland with my sister Ailsa. The flights were my birthday and Christmas present – we shopped, went to libraries, talked, spent time with family, and had a wonderful time. I bought a bunch of summer clothes and got some real bargains.
CMP pages – Dina Wakley & Dylusions paints, stencils, Simon Says Stamp inkpad.
#colourmepositive has started for 2017. I’ve decided to do single spreads this time, so it’s a square format. In 2016 I used a particular style all year and I love the cohesive look of the journal when I flip through it. This year I want to use a denser, more collagey style and develop my own mark making a bit more. This is one reason for doing single spreads; it’s easier to get the page looking really full. I am very much inspired by the work of Frieda Oxenham; you can see her work here.
I used Tim Holtz Distress paints, rubber stamps, Fude ball pen, white Posca pen, Dylusions paints, Dina Wakley wing stamps, StencilGirl and Tim Holtz stencils and collage materials.
This week’s quote was short and sweet, and the challenge was to list a super power you’d love to have. I used Dylusions and Dina Wakley paints, and some stencils.
The words on today’s journal page are from The Golden Boy; I love this version sung by Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe. Tony and I are two introverts so I really do love him for his peace and silence, and occassional fire!
