Pot Luck Art Journal Workshop

Hi Everyone!..

Today I am sharing 2 art journal pages with you ๐Ÿ™‚ … now if you have followed my blog for a while you will not have seen any art journal pages because I struggle with them big time!

So I headed over to Stampers Grove in Edinburgh yesterday to attend a workshop with Lorna Figures called Pot Luck Art Journaling and I really enjoyed myself… and managed to get one page finished and another page started which is a huge accomplishment and I kinda quite like the concept now.. so I am now the proud owner of a lovely new art journal, ranger apron and some Dina Wakeley Scribble Sticks ๐Ÿ™‚

First picture is my finished page using my new scribble sticks ๐Ÿ™‚

and this is my second page.. not quite there yet with this one .. but I will share it again with you once I finish it and i’m happy with it.. this page I used distress oxide inks

art journal page 2

I am on holiday now for the next two weeks so hope to be up in my shed a lot more creating lots of crafty goodness…

My next project is going to be a travel journal, I have everything I need to make one and I have been itching to get it started so watch this space ๐Ÿ˜‰

As always, thank you for popping round

Crafty Projects Jan-Jun 2017

 

Good Morning Everyone!

Just sharing a wee video montage of the crafty things I have been making in the first half of 2017..and there are not nearly enough of them lol.. will aim to make more Jul-Dec ๐Ÿ˜‰

Let’s go somewhere

Hi Everyone!..

I have been playing with Distress Oxide inks on kraft cardstock tonight ๐Ÿ˜€

I made a wee tag

Lets go somewhere

I put so many layers of ink down my tag warped quite a bit, so I double layered it ontop of another one to give it a bit of stability..

lets go somewhere 1

I used Spiced Marmalade, Broken China, Iced Spruce, and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks

lets go somewhere 2

I also used a lovely Petaloo Darjeeling Teal Dahlia flower, a Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker, and my Uniball Signo White Pen..

lets go somewhere 3

I used a Prima Finnabair spotty stamp over top of the oxide inks and finished it off with some Maya Road Fibres …

As always, thank you for popping round

I mixed a spot of cobalt black paint in with the texture paste and swiped this over my stencil, i like this decoart media texture paste as it is quite rubbery when dry as opposed to a chalky finish.
