I don't know about you, but I get a little bit twitchy if I haven't had chance to get a bit messy with my paints and inks. A little time for my art makes me a nicer person to live with I'm sure LOL! So I started this journal page last night. I began with pinks and oranges but it looked a bit too........nice. It needed something a bit more edgy so I added some green and then some even stronger green, and then some turquoise blue. And then to make the colours really pop I added some distress ink straight from the bottle and splodged it in with my fingers :-) I have the evidence on my hands today to prove it.
The image came from Itkupilli. I know some of you find these images a bit too spooky but I LOVE them and if I'm going to journal about annoying things then I don't want it to look pretty. So now I get to write on it :-)
I have also been busy with some other things. Here is a glimpse of an easel card I will be doing at my workshop on Saturday using beautiful papers and images from Crafty Individuals:
And have you seen Teesha Moore's new blog post about drawing 4 fun? I couldn't resist trying it. FUN FUN FUN! This is an exact copy of Teesha's I have to say and it's unfinished but maybe I'll have another go soon.
On top of all the other everyday things, we have been stripping wallpaper off in our house this week (when I say 'we' I mean my husband has and I have helped by pointing out all the bits he missed) and the children couldn't possibly miss the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to draw on the walls:
And finally a belated thank you to Ann of the Flutterby Crafter blog for this award:
Do hop over to Anne's blog and have a look at the amazing things she can do with distress inks, metals and grunge board to name a few! She even does journal pages occasionally :-)
Bye for now.............
