Colour makes me happy!

I have just got home after visiting the David Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy. If you have the opportunity to go, I would definitely recommend it. The colours he uses are stunning and seeing the pictures he drew on his IPad is very interesting.

Dropping the level a few gears, here is a journal page I created last week. The piece of collaged card is actually part of the packaging of a Dina Wakley stamp. Waste not want not!

... a peaceful heart

Having sprayed the page with water and spray inks, I then used two home-made heart stencils with acrylic paint. I used another stencil with yellow acrylic paint. I then stamped white acrylic paint on a bottle top to create the white circles. I edged the hearts with black oil pastel and added some more acrylic paint. To finish I outlined some of the circles with black pen and added the quote.

Be still ...

I created this journal page at the same time, and in the same way, as the one I posted two days ago.

Miracles happen ...

I started this journal page by applying several layers of spray inks. Next came the gesso, which I scraped through a stencil. I sprayed over that, slightly off-setting the stencil to create more depth. I stamped the figure onto white paper and glued it onto the page, outlining it with grey pen. Lastly, I added the words.

My Valentine's card for my husband

I made this at the same time as I made my postcard for SPA (see below). I then edged it with red vellum and stuck it onto the card.

A birthday card

This is a card I made using my Spellbinder dies. The 6 dots (candy) and the central 'happy birthday' motif are all by Craftwork Cards.

Sunday Postcard Art

I haven't been able to join in SPA for a while because of studying, but I couldn't miss another week! This postcard was made by adding acrylic paint and spray paints, some through a stencil, to watercolour paper. I then stamped on some script and hearts in crimson, and then the black hearts.I added the words digitally after scanning the postcard.

Without mystery ....

I was aiming to create an arty digital piece. You can let me know whether you think I achieved it!

A journal page - waiting for spring!

The background of this page was created by applying Portfolio pastels and then blending them with a baby-wipe. The flowers are stamps (PaperArtsy), stamped onto decorative paper, cut out and outlined with a pen.

Tulip journal page

Obviously, I was a bit premature to think we had missed a severe winter this year. It's pretty cold outside and snow expected tonight... So here's a nice warm page with a tulip offering the hope of spring spring to come.

The background is acrylic paint and oil pastels. The central piece comes from Paper Whimsy.
