Thursday Journal with Neet.

This week the theme is Nature. As this covers so many things it made it difficult to narrow it down. I have used a double page that was already painted, and a Dylusions figure. The stamps for the cat, leaves, mushrooms and flowers are also Dylusions.
I wonder what Neet has done for this one.



I am also entering this on Art Journal Journey where the theme is Out and about, and Try it on Tuesdays, which is mechanical.

Tag Tuesday -- Birds/nests

Another bird shaped tag for the theme on Tag Tuesday. These bird shapes have been hanging around in my studio for ages, and as I chose the theme for this fortnight it was an ideal opportunity to get them done.



I am also entering this on Simon Monday challenge which is Things with wings.

Every Inchie Monday -- Peacock

It's another bird this week on Every Inchie Monday. The colourful exotic peacock. I love the colours of their feathers, and trying to get the look of it on an inch is not easy. I have used shrink plastic for the stampbord, and beads and threads for the sewn one.

Go Tag Thursday -- Nautical

The theme this week on Go Tag Thursday is nautical. I love sea theme art and hope to make a another one if I have time. The base of this one is corrugated card with a size 8 tag on top. I painted the background with acrylic paint, added a lighthouse from a napkin, and some fabric rocks. I used puff paint for the sea spray, clay shells and star fish. My two scanners are playing silly beggars so I have used the scanner on my iPad, the light wasn't very good either.




Thursday journal with Neet


I don't know how Neet has interpreted this one, as the theme is strips. I think it's supposed to be strips rather than stripes. Isn't our language odd !!
I have made a very simple one this week as my imagination had gone AWOL.
I decided to cut up strips of paper and make a carry cage for the dogs. No way was I going to do all the cage, so you will have to use your imagination for the missing sides.
My scanner hasn't caught the right side as it's near the end of the journal and won't lie flat


Susi suggested I add this to Art Journal Journey, which is hosted by Yvonne and is "Out and About". I suppose it sort of fits as the dogs are definitely going somewhere.

Tag Tuesday -- Birds and nests

I am very pleased to be hosting our forth challenge on Tag Tuesday. I have chosen birds and nests, as this is the time of year when the birds will be gathering the nesting materials and building their nests. I love birds and am an avid bird watcher.
I have made three tags to give you some inspiration, two conventional ones with paper backgrounds, texture paste and stamped images. The nest for the first one is made from cut strips from and old book, both have real feathers on them. The third one is bird shaped and will join others to make a bird tag book.

Every Inchie Monday -- Woodpecker

It's another bird this week on Every Inchie Monday, it's the turn for the woodpecker. I have featured the greater spotted woodpecker as that is the one we see here on the peanut feeder. The stampbord is shrink plastic.
