End of term is but 4 days away and so I am getting in the art mood! I have completed Arlee's arch ...... I think? I found some diods earlier left over from a school project and knowing Aree's love of found items they may just have to be added. But essentially it is done. I gathered up some silk and used my embellished felt again. I added a piece of painted embossed wall paper and added a felt barouque cross/flower.
I addedbuttons and a hand made tassell too. The top of the arch, is a little hard to see but is a piece of my embossed aluminium, using the impress machine. I know Arlee was having gadget envy but she will drool when she sees it in the flesh!
I read on Jo's blog that Sarah Whitmire of Caspiana blog was completing a soul journal. Now I have been interested in journalling for a while, but couldn't seem to go ahead on my own. Sarah's prompts are fab, so inspirational so I made a start. I bought an address book today in the pound shop for .... yep a £1 and proceeded to stick lots of the pages together so I have thicker pages and about 14 pages in total. I followed Sarah's instructions on using a text background, I didn't have an old dictionary or yelow pages so I got some text from a bridal magazine, I find they have amazing colour and lovely layouts. I found a piece that had both WALES and SWANSEA in it so those are the highlighted squares/ cirlces. I just wrote for 3 minutes, which was suprisingly easy, I was shocked.
Next comes Gesso and the design part. I am loving it! Thanks Sarah, I am going to learn lots about journalling but maybe about me too!
