My favourite shoes. The theme for this weeks documented life project. I used what I call my 'drained of colour' technique. A black and white photo with the colours in the background which in this case matches the colours of my comfy birkies. Here is my finished journal page threaded onto my book binding ring.
Hope everyone is having a good Easter weekend.

is hard to. The theme for the current SODAlicious art journal challenge No49. I have been toying with the idea of a fabric art journal and here is the first double page spread. I used all my usual supplies but added some hand stitching, beading and worked on calico.
I am going to enter my pages into the ABC challenge of 'as you like' and That Craft Place 'Anything Goes'.

My art work this month was not only inspired by this month's OLW challenge with the theme 'adventure' but also by the current Mix it Up Monthly challenge with prompts of 'maps' and a colour scheme.
This unseen women is striding off on an unknown adventure. I worked on the back of a watercolour postcard, used a map from a vintage book about Somerset in the UK, a range of Fresco paints and stamps by PaperArtsy, a handful of coloured pencils plus a few touches of Coral and Apricot Promarkers.

a steampunk girl. Been working on a canvas the last couple of days and here she is finished off. Wasn't planning steampunk theme but that is what she became! I used a mix of Fresco Paints and watercolour pencils. Some journal stamps by PaperArtsy and some Prima embellishments. The feather stamps was a Craft Stamper freebie.
