Ridiculously Delightful Dreams!

The guest artist as Wanderlust last week was Magda Polakow. She showed how she paints whimsical paintings. This isn't something I would normally consider, but here it is. I'm imagining my pig dancing on a stage, and he does make me smile.  What about you?

Summer Sun

We haven't had too much sun this summer in London, so far. So this page was a bit of wishful thinking!

The Patterns of Life

This journal page comprises of collage, paint & stamping. I did it very quickly, but I quite like the finished result.

My Fingerprints

You may not be able to see them, but my fingerprints are all over this page. All the paint was applied using my fingers; no brushes in sight. Thanks go to Kasia Kryzminska at Wanderlust for the inspiration behind the page.

Keep you eyes on the Stars ...

... and your feet on the ground (Theodore Roosevelt).

This journal page was a Wanderlust project, inspired by Jennifer Lee.

Phone Art!

I have discovered that I can create digital art on my phone, which I am loving! I need some more practise, but here are a few examples.

For the first piece, I used one of my own pictures with words and a frame from the app Rhonna Designs.


The second piece is a picture taken from a bus on a wet night, with a frame, geometric shape and words added from Rhonna Designs.


The third piece is two of my photos superimposed onto each other with a filter then applied, using the Diana Photo app. I then added the frame, shapes and words from Rhonna Designs.

Watercolours

This past week at Wanderlust was concentrating on using watercolour paints and a variety of techniques.

In this landscape picture I used salt, alcohol, masking fluid and cotton.


For this picture I only used watercolours, but used paints and pencils.


I can see all the faults in both pictures, but I'm still quite pleased with them as watercolour is not a medium I am used to, yet!
