Mixed Media Monday "Wings"


I have not been able to blog for ages, nor did I have time to create art much... work was just too busy, also I had a friend to stay. But things are slowly getting back to normal and I decided to use some of the themes on challenge blogs as art journal prompts. The theme at MMM is wings, and as I seem to be right into angels at the moment,that was easy. I also wanted to use one of the images of William Bouguereau. I got a whole Lunagirl CD full of them. I love his paintings and I know I will use them again and again. Angel and girl don't really go together in style, so I tried to tie it together with the colours I used....

ps...Astrid do you actually stick the images to your page, or do you do image transfer...I have been trying that, but not got the knack yet...I need more practice I think..

The two pages go very well together. The gorgeous background accented with elegant flourishes tie them together. Your journal pages are very beautfiul. And I'm sure that Lunagirl CD will get lots of use.

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!
