2 pages from my A4 Moleskine art journal
Ok, today is a bit of a photo-fest. I told you, we worked really hard all weekend at the 3 days of workshops with the wonderful Dina Wakley at the equally wonderful Art from the Heart, and I've got the photos to prove it!
On day 2 Dina encouraged us to get lots of layers and texture into our pages, and as she says, to get the layers you have to put the work in. We had to aim for 20 layers on the page. I think I managed it.....
Here's a large scale piece I made using a star stencil. This is HUGE for me - at one time I only made ATCs! But this piece measures 15" x 11". I finished it off at home with some stitching.
And finally (well, for today - there's still more!) this is a great way to make yourself a journal. First we coloured our backgrounds using acrylic paints and Altered Originals spray inks (in yummy new colours), and finished it off with a few splats:
And then turned it into a mini journal like this:
Stamp by Stampotique
(but owned by Dina. We were all fighting over this one!!)
Ok, that's it for today......but there's more to come!
Byeee for now.
