A bit of colour

I created this art journal page using acrylic paint, Dylusions spray ink and Dina Wakley's stencils and stamps. I like it. Hope you do too!

Black and white tags

Having created a black & white page for week 36 of My Documented Life journal I decided I liked it so much that I would also decorate some tags in the same way. I'm not sure they were quite so successful, particularly as I added some colour to the second, which I'm not sure abut now, but here they are!

My Documented Life - week 40

The instructions for week 40 were to 'paint or colour with three colours you never use'. I found this quite hard as I use most colours in my work, but I went for brown, blue and purple. I don't tend to use brown much and blue and purple are my least favoutrite colours. Nevertheless, I am pleased with how the pages turned out.

Christmas cards - batch 1

I'm not sure whether I am very organised or just mad, but I've been making Christmas cards! As we send so many, my approach to this is different to making birthday cards etc. I create a simple design, that can be varied a little, but which I can make in bulk. It's fun and also saves money!

My Documented Life - week 38

It is getting quite hard to photograph my journal now. It is so fat the pages don't sit flat anymore!

The prompt for week 38 was to 'draw, paint, doodle, sketch or incorporate a real feather onto your page'.

Tag Book

I got the inspiration for this tag book from a post by Anneke De Clerck on the PaperArtsy blog (23.9.14). I used a large tag and, having folded it, I used PaperArtsy Fresco paints and masking tape to create the background of the cover. I then stamped some flowers and the quote on top and added the white dots using an acrylic paint pen.
