Journalling everything....

I'm making pages about everything going on in my life at the moment, and now I'm even making them about what's going on in my friends' lives too.

Pretty Sandals Card

I had to wait in all day yesterday for a delivery so I spent the day making cards, just using up scraps of paper and ribbon and bits. I think this was the cutest of the ones I made. I like these pretty little shoes so much, it's a pity they aren't real!

Another Personal Journal Page

The words won't make sense to anyone except me, but I decided to blog this page because I was quite pleased with the look of the layers and the texture.
I used paint, collage, stamping, acetate overlay.

Public/Private Double Page Spread

I came across the mugshot of Frank Sinatra and it made me think of the sides of our personalities which we show/hide. My usual combo of paint background and collage.

Watercolour Poppies Page

During some freezing cold days last week, I was really longing for the summer to hurry up and arrive!

I did some loose paintings of poppies a while ago using watercolour paint and watersoluble pencils, so I cut one down to journal-page size. I didn't want to risk making a mess of writing on the picture, so an acetate overlay seemed a good solution. I like the simple summery feel.

Back to Art Journalling After a Long Break...

Well, I'm back again, after another of my mysterious six-month disappearances, and I've been sketching and journalling and making collages for a week or so now. My creative mojo is gathering pace, I've got loads of ideas, and I'm enjoying getting my hands dirty and making art again.

The pages I've made this last week have been quite personal, and one even has several sentences of journalling (which is a lot for me!)

I am getting tired of my beloved turquoise, so orange has recently taken over as my favourite colour. This is a simple collaged page with a watercolour background.
