A double page journal ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. I’m trying to remember to play in my A5 journal at least twice a month. My A5 journal is all about me, the colours I like or love, the stamps that I also like or love and I love playing with all those fabulous mediums that I own. So today I’m sharing what I created earlier this week and here it is …
An A4 layout
The right hand side
The beautiful butterfly stamps!
I do love these rich colours!
Lots of lovely sparkle and lushly rich colours
I had fun and I love the end results too!
These stamps are going to be used a lot
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Craft for the Craic Challenge May: Things with Wings
Colours and the Photograph which has a lush deep purple metallic look
Most of these painted or inked papers are snippets (left over’s from other projects), I normally experiment on the cuff with not too much forethought. I’m trying to bring inked/painted papers together to achieve a cohesive look for whatever I want to create. I’ve become aware that I regularly work in the same colour scheme and maybe I am over thinking the process – any advice or thoughts gratefully received, please? I’ve an appointment with my Jane Davenport ‘How To Draw Beautiful Faces’ and sketch pad so I’m off to play with my pencils!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this week ttfn Karen x
