Hands up who needs more hours in the day? meeeeee! Also who needs a day in between Saturday and Sunday? eh that would be me also! To say life is busy right now is an understatement but it’s an amazing kind of busy and one I’m very thankful for.
So last week it was a bit of touch and go whether or not I’d have my Messy Fun Friday eeeep! But the thought of having to wait another week was just crazy. So I sneaked in my studio Friday night once the children were in bed ha ha!
I had drawn a baby penguin and it’s mother, with a plan to create a wintry page. Unfortunately with all the best intentions I wasn’t really in the wintry creating mood so I created a bright, happy page. But that’s ok, I had another plan…note always have a plan B!
A few weeks ago I doodled an image of a girl holding a camera on a small post. The image was then re drawn on larger scale in my sketch book. It was then scanned into my computer and tidied up using photo editing software.I now have an image that can be used for future use and it can be used time and time again.
Here’s how I created my journal page…..
- Acrylic paints – Cadmium Orange Hue (619), Primary Blue (159), Black (026) ,white (011) (Daler Rowney) and Citron Green (Americana)
- Journaling- white gel pen (Signo Uniball)
- Stencils – Chequered dots (Dylusions)
- Image – Hand drawn by me
- Stamps – Zentangle stamp set (Sarah Hurley)
- Junk stamping – gift card, bottle tops
- Stickers – Stash
- Words – Tim Holtz
- Alcohol pens – Shinhan
- Image transfer
- Junk stamping
All that is left is to add my image which I’ll post about another day.
Have a great weekend
