I decided to show two of my journal pages, one in "new" one in "old" style. Recently I have been feeling I should do some actual painting rather than just collage and stamping and so I made myself create faces and portraits in different styles. You can see a few more of htese in the post below. If I am really honest though I have to say I enjoy both the process and the result of my "old" style better.
I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful Moleskine art journal as one of my Christmas gifts. I can't wait to start on it but have resolved to finish the pages in my old journal first, so I have been busy creating new pages in that. Here are a few samples:
Spent the evening making two similar four by fours out of some previously created fabric paper. They are pretty much the same just in different colour ways. They are intended for two crafty friends. Now the question is, which one will get which colour...
I made this box for my sister in law who is expecting a baby on boxing day. I am going to fill it with pampering goodies for her. This because so often all the attention goes to the new baby, but I reckond it would be nice to give her something just for her
Have been so busy making Christmas cards etc that I have hardly blogged at all, but tonight I thought I should do something. The theme at The Three Muses is Fun and Games. I made a tag. It went through the cuttlebug, was sprayed with various colours glimmermist. Then some gesso was added and finally an image of Itkupilli. The cheeky look on te girl's face suggested fun and games to me...
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
