Arting about

I was messing about with paint the other day.....

This one I did with a sample pot I bought many years ago when I did some Egyptian stencilling, it came from Laura Ashley and, despite being more years old than I care to remember, it was still fine to use.
I did some stencilling over the top, Dylusions stencil & 2 different shades of ink and then added a little overstamping with Tim Holtz numbers.

Then up popped colour me positive: healing // add a heart or many

More painting....overstamped using versamark & then dusted with metallic eyeshadow!

Here you can see the stamping a little more clearly

Nothing added to this one yet...

Definitely needs more work....

And then I did a little more of my "use it or lose it" - I had some mop-up scraps that I really quite liked the colours of & decided I wanted to use them to cover the reverse of a page that was blank apart from some bleed through....stuck down with double sided tape and then doodled some fake eyelets & stitches with 2 different sizes of Sharpie.

  6. lots of great art - love the monkey face

  7. Looks like you've been having lots of fun - great art pages - specially like the heart one but you have created some lovely background pages too - love your free and easy approach - I really must have a go! Great monkey inchie too - looks like a cheeky chimp!

  8. Lovely journal pages and inchie, my you have been busy.

  9. Sally, there is so much here. My! You have been busy. Love all the colours you are using. Yellow is so bright and sunny, can't help but feel happy with that. Cute monkey. Your heart is very well done. Cheryl

  10. Wow - a wealth of creativity in this post. Love the painty pages - can't wait to see where some of those backgrounds take you next. The "stitched" together one is so cool! And red and yellow would be probably joint least-reached-for for me, so it's fun to see them so close together towards the end there... maybe I should branch out!
