Art journal journey week 23

Image: disco ball. Word: party. Prompt: make a list of 10 things that make you smile. Technique: incorporate the colour wheel. Quote: LIFE may not be the party that we hoped for, but while we are here we may as well dance.

I've made a "Colour Wheel" from a large die cut circle & added some windows , used a kiddies box of paints, some dancer images and made my own version of a disco ball by running a circle of metal though my cuttlebug.....added a boom box for the music element!

Life documented week 23

Monthly Theme - Doodles and Marks

Quote - Press forward.  Do not stop, do not linger in your journey but strive for the mark set before you.  George Whitefield. Prompt - Use at least three marks on you page making them numerous times. Technique - Adding the same marks over and over for impact and using a palette knife for added texture. 

An opportune perfume bottle cap & a sheet of doodled book paper on my desk led to this one....I just added some stencilling, stamped with the cap & added the quote to the book paper.

Journal 52 week 22 


All kinds of flowers from my stash including the central(ish) Clematis that is rescued from my art book from when I did my C&G creative embroidery nearly 30 years ago!

Colour me positive week 23

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks,  breaking rules, making mistakes & having fun.

Like my documented life page this was a serendipitous one! A background that was already made , some artpops (the circles) that were a good colour match thanks to the printer being low on black ink, some stamping of Tim Holtz quotes and the seaside images....

Every inchie Monday and we are up to the monkey business this week, a bit like my dog & his current favourite soft toy! Gorilla is the name of the game...
