A-Z journal - B page

B is for Bicycle - challenge - to use buttons and beads

The frame has been embellished with tiny crystal beads and then paper buttons have been collaged onto the page. The B in bicycle has been put onto the back of a large clear button.

A-Z journal

At the beginning of this year I joined an online A-Z art journal and got really excited about it. Unfortunately the challenges didn't go with the type of art I enjoy doing and so I have got together with a few friends on Alternative and we are having a go ourselves, every 2 weeks challenging each other to come up with a page that fits in with our themes. My theme is "Echos of the past " looking at things that have been invented in the past or people from the past who still have a huge affect on our lives today. So here are the first 2 pages -

A is for Aviation - challenge - to use paints

I have used watercolour to make the background and then collaged over the top

Valentines gifts

Each year I try to make my hubby something a bit different. This year I had fun making a small heart accordion card, which was painted and collages. Then using a K&Co kit and some photos, I think are very cute, of him as a boy ( he has other ideas ) I put together a sweet little album so he can actually look at the photos rather than them being shoved in a bag on a shelf !!
