A giant tag

I used Dylusions Spray Inks and a stencil to create the background of this tag. The circles are die cut from scrap brown paper I used to cover my desk. It's always good to recycle! I then added the scribbles and rub-on.

The story of me

I first coloured the background using Distress Stains and then stamped on the buildings image (A Lynne Perrella stamp by Paper Artsy). Having stamped the face (a Pam Carriker stamp) onto tissue paper I glued this on top. Once dry, I added the highlights with acrylic pens and edged the tag.

Eternal youth

I love the work of Finnabair and, having watched a video on her website,  I decided to have a go.

I started off with a piece of DCWV card and sprayed some Glimmer Mists through stencils. I then added some stamping and stuck on the postcard. Lots of embellishments came next and then I sprayed it all with Glimmer Mists again. For a first attempt, I am very happy with how it turned out.

Some moments ...

... can last for ever.

A digital piece with another face, but this time not drawn by me. I wish I could draw like that, though!

The future

Another journal page in the same vein as my previous posts, but a profile this time. I find side views much harder to draw. Can you tell?!

The third way

This journal page is about resisting violence whilst also not doing anything i.e. taking the third way.

It was created in the same way as the previous two posts.

Accept change

Another journal page with a face. Created using the same method as my post yesterday.

Faces

I'm practising drawing faces again!

For this journal page I drew the face with pen on an old dictionary page. I then created the background on my journal page and stuck the face onto it. Then I coloured the face and completed the whole page.

A True Story

A tongue in cheek piece, and quite a contrast to my post yesterday!

Sometimes it's OK to say 'no'!

A journal page with Dylusions Inks, Washi tape and scraps from my stash.

Live, laugh, love

This was a simple tag to make. I covered it with strips of various tapes, dug out some pieces of decorated chipboard from my stash and added the words.

Juggling

We all juggle elements of our lives, but we have to remember that some things are more precious than others.

Stop!

This is a digital piece inspired  by some of the awful situations around the world, such as Syria, Palestine and Jerusalem, and Egypt and wishing, somehow, things were different.

This page was created using scraps of paper sewn together and mounted on an acrylic paint and sprayed ink background. I then added the journalling.
