Art Journal Caravan 2014 page Rain Rain go away!

The first muse for our journal pages on the AJC this year is nature and as the weather has played such a big part of all our lives over the past few weeks I decided to go with that. The UK and the South West especially, which is where I live, has been battered by some of the worst storms for years. In fact Bristol had some flooding for the first time since the 1960's. Although the threat has now passed the endless rain and dark grey skies is starting to get even me down!

For the background I used distress paints then Washi tape borders. The Wellies are from a Cricut cartridge. The cloud is from Rosey Posey Studios and the star from Tumblefish studios. I then added the lettering with a paint pen and added Glossy accents to the drops and flowers.

Graphic 45 Bohemian Bazaar ball

One night while cleaning my teeth after working with the Graphic 45 Bohemian Bazaar papers for The Fruit Pixie a sudden bolt of inspiration popped into my head! Wouldn't the Bohemian Bazaar papers look wonderful as a paper ball! I must admit they do !

If you would like to make one too I have just put a step by step photo tutorial on the Fruit Pixie Blog.

ATC swap

Happy New Year everyone!  Now I can show you what I was working on before Christmas. First I took part in a mixed media ATC swap on the Art Journal Caravan. It was a 10 for 10 swap and I decided to do a snow/ winter theme for mine. I used my Gelly plate for the backgrounds and then used the Tumblefish Studio Winter Junque  digital kit for the main images adding a bit of glitter here and a gem there!

I received 10 lovely ATCS in return.
