Busy, busy week but I have managed to squidge in a little play time :-) Here's a journal page I started a while ago while I was on holiday. I didn't have much arty stuff with me but I managed to create a background with neocolours and add a main image from Lisa's altered art and some other bits from Teesha Moore and Cassiscreations. After a heated phone call one day, I added some text over the mouth and made this page as a reminder to myself to keep my cool and to keep my MOUTH SHUT!
Another page using an image from Lisa's Altered Art:
And a page I finally got round to finishing. This was part of my on-line class with Nancy Baumiller where I have learned a lot about backgrounds, lettering and making funny people! I am also working on A4 size here which is huge for me and taking me well out of my comfort zone! This still isn't 'me' yet - it's very much Nancy's style (I guess that's what happens when you take a class!) but in time I think I will take these new techniques and make them my own. It's a fab class and Nancy will be doing it again in the spring.
I actually had a day out yesterday *gasp*. I rarely have a day off on my day off if you see what I mean. I went to The Stamp Man and met up with Sarah from the Art of Moodling blog. Jill and Ian of The Stamp Man were very kind to us as we mooched around their shop for hours, stroking everything LOL! And Ian was very patient with us as we took over his packing table with our art work! Jill showed us all of her lovely samples in the shop that she has made and I got to see Sarah's lovely lovely art in the flesh. The backgrounds in her art journal are stunning and I have come home feeling inspired :-) I also did a little spending in the shop.....oops.
Don't forget you have until Monday to sign up for my blog give away...see below....
