More grunge...

Paints, inks, images, rubber stamps by Dylusions

Last Sunday I headed to Art From The Heart for a day of uninterrupted art journaling *bliss*  It really is a day of pure messing about, my kind of day!! There are lots of funky new downloads available (here) which I used for this page, a large page in my A4 Moleskine.  Here's a closer look at the funky face:


The expression on this face looks a bit stroppy so I added a great quote I came across the other day, one which I truly believe in - 'speak your mind or shut your mouth' ha ha ha love it!

I used red, pink, yellow, white and orange to paint the background, and then I added a few squirts of various spray inks to create some splats, and drips. I stamped the flowers using 'How does your garden grow' and the border at the top using 'Around the edge'.

Real life calls ...... off to work now. Byeeeeeeeeee

  9. You've made me smile, love the page and the quote but especially the fact that you sing!!!! I am now retired but used to sing along to the either the radio or tape player on my 20 mile journey to work and again on the way home - and used to get some very funny looks in the Thelwall viaduct jams!
    My children eventually got used to me singing and swinging the trolley along on shopping trips so keeeeeeep singing!!!!

  13. I've enlarged your image twice Kathryn to dicover all the details ! Especially the background caught my attention beacause I'm planning (to my coming project) to use more water-color brushes.
    You're art is very inspiring to me and thankyou so much for sharing !
