Journal 52: summer solstice (+ bonus use a sun) or wine
It's been awfully hard to feel summery around our neck of the woods of late....someone fotgot to turn the rain tap off! So despite the stone circles that we have in this part of the world that always seem to attract the new age Druids at this time of the year I decided that I just had to go with wine.
A light wash of shabby shutter DI, some stencilled red wine stains (seedless preserve & festive berries mix), inkadinkadoo grape varieties stamp (dusty concord & bundled sage)
I added a bunch of grapes, 2 champagne flutes & some inked tissue paper vine leaves from my stash which, by the way, never seems to get any smaller!!!! I added a quote to a sticker that I coloured with shabby shutter.
A little close-up...
Art prompts galore
I managed all the elements this week!
Yellow, watercolour paint, stripes, circle, stickers, stars, rubber stamping, animal.
Colour me positive is be enough
I had a background prepped and I raised my stash! The long hair is me though mine is not this long and never has been, the French maid....well, let's just say that housework comes after crafting in the dictionary but I am fluent in french, the lady at the bottom of the page is from a Thierry Mügler ad for Angel perfume and her hair is more like mine, the girl top right is in fact from my hairdresser appointment card....he tries to get my hair straight,the girl in the swimsuit...reminds me of the summer lifestyle we lived in the Middle East and Marilyn....likes to have a fun time and so do I ! The quote is one I like to think reflects the old me & the more recent me lol.
I took a long time to get started because I was blank! Eventually used a piece of card done ages ago with home made texture paste, spray inks & gilding wax + Sizzix butterflies
DLP is PAC: use tissue paper & list 10 overused words
Monday is a new week of inchies and this week is party....done with a Craft Stamper free stamp on shrink plastic....
