Another A5 journal page ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. As I promised in yesterday’s post I am here with another journal A5 journal page. Yesterday’s and today’s pages came about because I wanted to see if I could use the same ink and painted snippets across a double page but with different stamps used on each page. I hoped that when I opened my pages that they wouldn’t jar and would compliment each other and thankfully I now know I can do that in future. Here is my second page …
The full look on the left and with the borders removed on the right
I love these Neil Walker stamps that I was lucky enough to win from the Artistic Stamper.
So many lovely shades of yellow - not a colour I normally use!
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge XYZ: I’m into using sunny yellow right now
The Artistic Stamper Challenge: journaling Artistic Stamper stamps too
Just as I hoped: the Steampunk Edgar works really well with those birds:
However I need to remember to ground the birds and add a drawn or die cut branch next time!
I do hope I’m not boring you because I’ve a double page journal to share tomorrow and it is the first time I’ve combined my sketched ladies with several stamps and a gorgeous Spectrum Noir AquaTints background in my A5 journal. You’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see but I can say I’m pleased lol.
I’m hoping to do more journaling and mixed media arch experiments tonight and tomorrow. I also want to let you in on a little secret. I add my own words, feelings and sadness or joy to my pages after they have been photographed. Well there is some stuff that I really don’t want to share, lol.
I’m having a ball with using bright colours right now. It may be because I’m desperate for warmth, sun and spring! It has been so wet and chilly in the
this week – had to put the heating on a couple of times which for late May is shocking. UK
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
