Home again and I have another page ready for joining in at Art Journal Journey! Bleubeard and Elizabeth had plenty of ideas in the introductory post this month for the theme of Summertime Love so here I am at the seaside!
I had a background sitting(as they often do)in one of my large journals, just waiting for me to decide what to do with it! While looking through my scraps I found a paint sample card that I had picked up ages ago! I tore off the brand name and then just around the edges (leaving the advertising words) and placed it on the page - really pleased to find this start to my page!
I stamped the Dina Wakley bird onto some card that was leftover from a Brusho playtime. I stamped the shells (a Lindsay Mason stamp) randomly around the bottom of the page and added some loose weave gauze before adding the image.
The page already had some stencilling on it but I added some more (using a wavy stencil)and a bit of stamping - filmstrip edge and some dots and a Visible Images word. Finally I drew in some seagulls!
I haven't been around much lately for looking at blogs! The reception at our caravan is getting worse so I can only really use my phone on the move or if we are lucky enough to be in a cafe with Wi-Fi, which of course means I am either distracted by the scenery or I am one of those annoying folk who sit and ignore their partners and I'm afraid that's not really me!(Well, maybe for a short time!!!!)
Thanks for looking, Chris
