Journal Pages

SaWo’s choice this week is Sandy’s fascination with art journalling… I haven’t journalled for quite some time, so this was the perfect prompt! I have spent the last 2 days in an altered cutlery frenzy, as the pieces I took to the Gallery have sold and I had a message waiting on Thursday evening when we got home, asking for more!! Lovely! However, the wire-wrapping and beading is the tricky part and demands concentration and focus, so a little light relief in the form of a journal page was exactly the therapy I needed:


All the stamps are from my collection of handcarved ones; the background is half a telephone book page and a piece of a gift bag. Coloured with Blue Jeans distress ink and Neocolours II crayons. I used a black roller pen and a Stabilo fineliner to write and outline with and a Gellyroll white pen for the highlights. The French Kitty is the Calendar/Planner DD gave me to “play” in!!

Fun all the way and very gratifying. Tomorrow I must:

Finish the other 4 pieces of cutlery and look for more!

Go to the local Car Boot (weather permitting, of course!)

Work in the afternoon/evening…

Now, I’m going to finish watching The Mummy Returns (for the 4th or 5th time!) Pure escapism… 😉
