Picture (and maybe word) heavy post!!
The lovely Clare has set up a Junk Journal group on her blog and a private group on Facebook. This is my page which started off like this....
I then used a vermillion green acrylic paint to cover it and used more paint through stencils
I used some gelato's around the edges and started stamping
The words were still quite obvious so I put some washi tape down then stamped my new octopode 'doll head' stamp on tissue paper and stuck it down with matte medium.
I then took some tags and used gelato's and dylusion sprays. I used a white sharpie to draw the numbers on.
I put the numbers on both sides so it wouldn't matter if the tags flipped over.
The hearts in the top right corner are self made stamps made by Clare :)
This is the other side of the page - painted the same as the front but with my word of the year 'sharpie'd' on!
My word is CHOICE. Last year I had exams and case studies and reflective diaries and much more to do.. it completely took over all of my time, we also moved house so I felt I had no free time to do anything I wanted to do.
I worked on a word based journal page a few nights ago and thought about words for 2014 - funnily enough choice wasn't one of them but the other words on the page were.
As well as signing up to Clare's junk journal I also signed up to Effy Wild's Moonshine 2014 - mix of painting and art journalling - I CHOSE to sign up to these and am also keeping an eye on a few other art journalling blogs/prompts.
What are your choices for 2014? and what's your word?
