Yay! I had a bit of time for journaling at last! This is a page in my A4 Moleskine (8" x 11.5") and it's a little different to my usual because I wanted to have more of a play with these:
Altered Originals Spray inks www.afth.co.uk
I love these pen style sprayers which you can get seperately because you can put some of the ink into these bottles and add your own sparkly stuff, making your own colour combos. Cool!
Now I can't deny that there is a touch of Dina Wakley influence in this page but that is because it is only 9 more sleeps till I get to go to a whole 3 days of arty fun with Dina when she comes to teach at Art From the Heart :-) I am going with my arty friend Sarah, and we are even staying over for 2 sleeps and making a mini-break of it! Can't wait! (Technically speaking we could drive home each day quite easily but where's the fun in that?!)
I wanted to have bigger circles on this page, because you may have realised by now that I LOVE circles and they often appear in my pages in one way or another. I didn't have a stencil with bigger circles so I made myself a disposable stencil from a scrap of card and a circle punch. Simples!
I sprayed directly through the holes to get this effect:
And then quickly flipped it over to get the negative:
And this is how it looks next to the previous page I did. I love to see such different pages next to each other!
Now, lookie what arrived for me in the post today. Don't you just love it when a scrumptious little gift arrives for you in the post?! I was lucky enough to win these as blog candy on Paper Pumpkin's blog. Paper Pumpkin aka Katherine is a fellow compulsive journaler, go check out her blog! These earrings are from her daughter's Etsy. Have a look - there's some lovely lovely things there.
Thanks so much Katherine, and thanks so much Mia Michelle :-)
Byeee for now .........
