I recently acquired some of Dina Wakley's collage papers. Here is a journal page using stars and one of the faces, or to be precise half of one of the faces!

It will be OK

I created this digital piece using an Artified Template by Captivated Visions.

I shall probably use these pieces as card toppers. The backgrounds were created by brayering on layers of paint and then using stamps and stencils. The focal pictures and sentiments were created in a similar way in contrasting colours.

Paint Pouring

Paint pouring seems to be in fashion at the moment. I've poured Pebeo paints before but I've never tried it with using acrylic paints and pouring medium. So a friend and I decided to have a go. Here are my small canvases. I used three parts medium to one part paint (approximately).

Here I just poured the paint and just kept tilting the canvas until I was happy.

 For the second canvas I added more paint, so it was thicker, and played with the paint using a stick.

For the third canvas I used an old fork to create the edges and a little marbling.

Wheat Field

This page started out as just experimenting with Distress Oxide inks stamped onto an acrylic background, but I love how it turned out.

Well I guess Autumn is definitely here, now. So I created an autumnal this digi piece.

August seems a long time ago now, but at least I've had a chance to dabble in my art journal. I actually retired at the beginning of August, hence the 'home together' tabs, but somehow I find that I'm still working, so I'm not sure how that works!!
