Try it on Tuesday - Butterflies

 Good Morning all! It's time for another great challenge at Try it on Tuesday!



For the next 2 weeks we will be celebrating Butterflies!! 

I made a simple art journal page for this challenge, I used some watercolors for the background, added some stamped butterflies, some butterfly wings behind my little girls, some washi tape, thread and gems. 


I do hope you will join us and share your butterflies with us!

Have a fabulous week!

SOSS - F Words

 Hello all! It's been a while and the challenge over at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is just what I needed to get the mojo going after a couple months off! 

Edna and my old teammates (miss you all terribly!) have come up with some amazing inspiration for this next two weeks challenge....


This challenge was perfect for what has been happening in my life for the past couple of months, and I just had to art journal it! Although you can't read the journaling around the outside, it was painful to write, but oh so needed! 


I even used my favourite "F Word" in the background! 

Thanks girls for the great challenge!

Miss you loads!

Try it on Tuesday - I can hear music!

 Good Morning all and Happy Tuesday!

We have a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday for the next couple of weeks...

"I Can Hear Music"

Of course I had to do a fun art journal page for this challenge! I used some Tim Holtz music tissue paper for the background, added some spray inks, added some molding paste through a music stencil and then of course, my little people and a snarky sentiment!

 

I do hope you will pop by the blog and check out what amazing projects the design team has done for this challenge!

Art Journal Journey - Play it Again Sam

 Happy Sunday .. again! This month at Art Journal Journey, 

Alison is hosting for the month of April with a challenge of 

"Play it Again Sam"

We have to do an art journal page based on a favoutie song.


I have had a tough couple months and just need some Silence in my life, so the song I chose was Sound of Silence. I love this one when I am needed some quality me time... so here is my art journal spread for the challenge. 


I embossed the trees with black embossing powder, added some distress ink to the top with purple, blue and black. I then painted a black area under the trees to do some journaling on of the song lyrics! 

I do hope you are all doing well, and Happy Sunday!

The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog - Industrial Grunge

 Happy Sunday all! Today I decided to do some altered art for

 The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog challenge this week ... 

"Industrial Grunge"

I decided to alter a computer board into some industrial grungy things 

that inspire me at the moment!


I added some bits and bobs to the computer board, gessoed it black, added some blue ink spray, brushed with white gesso, highlighted with silver wax, and voila... industrial grunge!

It was fun to just play and thanks for the great challenge! 

Have a super Sunday!
