Faces, Gardens and Tattered Art

Two finished, two half done...

Turned out so different to what was in my head (amazing art in Kelly Rae Roberts' style), even with a labeled, detailed sketch! Instead, my inner paper addict took over and made it more like a scrapbook page but without a photo. But hey, its actually turned out ok! 
In hindsight, Robin's quote should have been in thicker writing or an overlay. Hopefully you can still read it :)

The Garden of My Imagination...
I love gardens, so much simpler than faces or pages about myself!
I started with watercolour wash background, then inked up a few stamps with Distress inks of different greens and yellows. Added the birds, stamped splotches in blues for sky. I never seem to stamp in just one colour! Its always at least two... lucky the inks don't transfer between inkpads!

A few butterflies made from my black and white prints, coloured with watercolour paints and tipped with Stardust glitter glue :) Pretty!

More glitter for their trails and its done. Well then I added words, and then it was done :)

Torn, Tattered Treasured...
I'll post an entry for the Torn and Tattered journal when its finished. More green! lol But at least its almost finished :)

Life As I See It...
I don't like what I've done at all for this... its just too over the top and blah. Ok, you twisted my arm, here it is. I think a bucket or 2 of white wash to calm it down might fix it. Maybe!

I got totally stuck when it had to be about me! lol So I over analysed what I could possibly do and this mess came out! lol 

I think the next journal I do should not have green at all... with them altogether here, anyone would think I don't have sny other colours to use! :D

So that's me nearly caught up. A few ATCs to finish and then the new journal to get organised and then I'll allow myself to join a new swap! Yay :)

Hope you all are loving creating pages in the journals. I know I am :)

Happy Creative Day!

  3. Simply lovely pages! I love your 'faces' and appreciate the leap it took to do the page and I will treasure it all the more for that.
