Wanderlust - lettering

This week we have been learning about lettering. This is one attempt to develop a fancy lettering in one of my journals. The background is made up of acrylic paint, gesso and spray paints. It's not great, but I'm pleased with it for a first attempt.

Wanderlust - weeks 6 & 7 (cont.)

My next Wanderlust project was to use various pens to make a pattern and use that pattern as an inspiration for a canvas.

Wanderlust - weeks 6 & 7

Wanderlust

Having joined the Wanderlust Class, I am learning so much and having so much fun. Kasia's journal pages are wonderful and I used her pages this week as inspiration for mine.

Wanderlust

The theme for week 6 of Wanderlust was 'tangled journalling'. I hadn't tried Zentangles before, but decided to give it a go. It is quite time consuming, but I am pleased with my finished pieces.

This is a simple journal page, with acrylic paint and stamping, but I like the way it turned out!

Wanderlust

Teresa McFayden challenged us to paint a still life picture for week 4 of Wanderlust.
This is what I chose to paint:


And this is my (probably) finished painting. You can see I have exercised a bit of artistic licence.
