Inspired by Teesha Round 4


Here we go again.  Travelling Art Journal #4.

  This time around I have taken my inspiration fron the talented Teesha Moore.  Teesha loves bright colours, she loves quirky borders, lots of texture using dots, dashes, slashes, lines.  She is into collages and altering them.  She loves pointy hats and striped stockings.  Lots of illegible journaling and colourful quotes.

To begin I created my journal from Stonehenge paper and used a Teesha video for instructions. To decorate the cover I tried a technique I saw on line.  I painted coloured blocks all over, then after it dried I stencilled with black paint and then again with white, making a third layer.



I began my Title pages with my signed contract and the list of players in postal order.  Opposite I used a quirky image and added some information to help people along.


Nest I did my spread.  I chose another quirky image to collage over a bright background.  The background has various marks made on it as well as some stamping and stencils. I outlined the lady in gold pen and highlighted some of the gold in her costume.  Also used Inca gold with stencil to make a kind of halo.  The quote reads....Collect as precious, the words of the Wise and Virtuous which  I chose because my image is called The Night Collector.


This is the back page where I have added some little tags for people to sign and date when they receive the journal and maybe add a few words about their experience.


The next pictures are close-ups showing the borders I have added.
I hope you all have fun and enjoy a little bit of Teesha.
