Creative Life

Hi blogland

Urghh I am still feeling rough, have had a chesty cold for a while now and it's really getting me down, but not enough to stop crafting :D

As I have mentioned in a previous post I bought a book of quotes/sayings to use for inspiration in my art journal, here is another spread I came up with last night.

The quote is
"To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong"

Silks Acrylic Glaze
Baby wipe
Memento Ink Pads(Tangelo/Bamboo Leaves)
Archival Ink - Jet Black
Fresco Finish Paints (Chalk/limelight)
Paper Artsy Stamp EEV05
Alphabet Stamp Set (unknown brand)
Posco Pens (Black & White)

And then he kissed me.....

Hi Blogland

I was busy doing some stuff online the other day listening to my music (set to random as you do) and then the song 
"And then he kissed me" by The crystals came on and suddenly I had an idea for a journal page and couldn't wait to play.

Here is the finished result

My Journal
Black Gesso
Stencils (Dylusions and TCW)
3D Gloss Gel (Reeves)
G45 Papers Mon Amour
Indigo Blu Script Stamp
Grey Paint
Mod Podge (Matte)

Amazing what ideas pop in your head when you least expect it.
Hope you like it

Life is...

Hi blogland

I have finally started a new journal - and it's not the one I recently altered as that was given to a friend of my eldest daughter lol.

I bought 2 books filled with quotes and sayings and intend to take inspiration from these when it comes to filling my new journal and what better way to start than the following quote

"Life is the art of drawing without an eraser"
John W. Gardener (1912-2002)

Art Journal (A5 size)
Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Paints (Rose, Lilac & Cheesecake)
Tim Holtz Foam Stamps (Chronicles)
Dylusions Clear Stamps (clearly borders)
Archival ink (Jet Black)
TCW Stencils
Grunge Paste
Posco Pens (Black & White)

I love the way this has turned out (even with the teeny mistakes) and am look forward to continuing with the journal.
