Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Art Journal - Resonate

I enjoyed our last journal word challenge so we did it again!
This time I chose the word Resonate.

I started off with modelling paste through a stencil then used my inktense blocks to create drippage. They were not very vibrant so I added to them using my dylusion sprays. I added some music paper and some stamping and added the quote I liked. The word Resonate was stamped on tissue paper then glued down with matte medium.  I used my black neocolour around the printed text and used a waterbrush to create shade.

Art Journal - Summer

Following our craft retreat myself and a few others carried on with the idea of coming up with a word to journal about - Kathy picked Summer.

I went with warm colours (dylusions) and added some stamping and stencilling. I found a quote with the word Summer which also incorporated my love of reading.

What does the word Summer bring to your mind? Happy Summer Solstice day for yesterday everyone :)

Lots of crafting took place
