Art Journal Journey -- Recycle and Collage

Another page for Art Journal Journey and this time I have made a Spring green one. The picture in the middle has been on my desk for ages, and I have drawn some leaves and flowers to fill in some of the space.

Every Inchie Monday -- Kenya

We are off to Africa this week and Kenya always makes me think of wild animals. My first instinct was to sew a lion, but I did that last year, so I have sewn an orchid which is their unofficial National flower. They are the largest exporters of flowers in the world.
For my card one I have done shrink plastic giraffe against an African sunset.

Thursday Journal with Neet

All done in a hurry as I have had a busy week and today had to take the car in for a service and MOT, which took from 9 am to 5.30, now am now cooking tea and rushed down to put this on as I am very late. I had made the majority of the page yesterday, but had to wait overnight for the stickles to dry so I could put the words on when we got home.
This week it is blue and gold and the words are All thatis glitters. I have used Dylusions paint for the blue and a metallic one for the gold which I sprinkled with glitter while it was still wet. I drew some more diamonds with red and blue Ranger stickles. It's a shame that the glitter doesn't show up on the scan.

Tag Tuesday -- Black and white with a spot of colour

For my second tag on Valerie's theme on Tag Tuesday I have made another one with a Dylusion figure, this time adding a spot of pink.
I have also included some photos of the poppies at Hereford cathedral, near where I live.







This is Haze who came down to my studio to help move all the pencils about. She has a short attention span so ended up looking at the fish.
She follows me like a little dog, as she is a bit lost having lost a brother and sister who for some reason tried to cross the road and didn't make it.

Every Inchie Monday -- Egypt

This week we are off to Egypt, I have never been , and not likely to now.
My grandfather was there during the first World War, picture below, he's the one in the middle.



I have used shrink plastic for the card one and sewn The Eye of Horus for the other.

Tag Tuesday -- Black and white and a spot of colour

Valerie has chosen the theme for this fortnight on Tag Tuesday. It is black and white and a spot of colour.
I have used a black tag and stamped a Dylusion figure stamped on white card. I added some spots of red.


Art Journal Journey -- Recycle and Collage

A second page for the Art Journal Journey, before I go out and do a tiny bit of gardening.
This time it's a blue theme with some more random findings. The background is a clean off sheet from various projects that was bound to come in useful some day. The saying stamped well over eight years ago, and the image from my vintage collection.
 I am also entering this on Try it on Tuesday where the theme is the same as AJJ
