Return to Sender

This months Kraft challenge was all about postage. I am running very late with my entry so will update this blog later. Here is my entry - I made my own background paper!

Wanderlust Update

We are now up to week 7 in our year long art experience  Wanderlust  and it is certainly keeping me very busy and sometimes very stressed a I ponder over what to do and how to do it.
So this is what I have been up to.  Our journal exercise for week 6 was to write all over our page and the class was on Zentagling. I decided to combine the the two and complete my zentangling on my journal page and this is what I came up with. Note to self. Spend more time completing the zentangling tile exercise.The background was created using Dylusion paints applied with a baby-wipe, stencil and stamps.

So, this is what I have been up to this week. We have been experimenting with alcohol ink pens on velum. Our drawings have been inspired by "Suzani" designs. Some of these are to be torn up and pasted face down on the first layer of our project (Still to come) so here they are before this is done.

Vintage is Timeless

This is the sketch provided for the February Scrap the Boys Challenge.

I decided to be a little different by doing a vintage look which could be classed as feminine but I am happy with the outcome. Hope you like it.

and a close-up.
