JJJ - Days 15-18

 Hi Everyone!

Here are a few more of my Junk Journal January pages. Some of them have faces on, so I'm linking up with Erika's Let's Face It theme at Art Journal Journey.

Day 15 - Muted. Please believe me when I say the colours are more muted in real life! 

Day 16 - Musical. The keyboard came from some earphone packaging, never throw anything out! And the guitar came from a magazine. The splashes were made with diluted coffee.

 Day 17 - Hand Lettering. I got a bit carried away with this one, and I found a lovely Lord Byron quote to go with my art doll.

You might recognise the doll's face as one of my hand-carved stamps from early last year.

Day 18 - You've Got Mail. I made the music paper envelope using a template, and the stamped images are by PaperArtsy.

Thanks for coming to see my blog today.

JJJ - Days 12-14

Hello Everyone!

I hurt my back at the beginning of the week, and woke up Tuesday morning with lower back pain, so I haven't been able to sit at my computer comfortably all week. Thankfully it's feeling a bit better now, but I'll carry on doing my back exercises and taking the anti-inflammatories for a wee bit longer.

I have a few more pages for Junk Journal January to share with you today. 

Day 12 - Quote. This is one for Erika's Let's Face It theme at Art Journal Journey. Eleanor Roosevelt gave us some really great quotes!

Day 13 - Dreamy. I love that found book text 'fragments of everything', I think it's perfect for the theme.

Day 14 - Tickets and Tags. This is one of my favourites!

Many thanks for visiting here today.

Happy weekend,

JJJ - Days 10 & 11

 Hello All.

I've another couple of pages to share for Junk Journal January, keeping it short as my back is playing up today.

Day 10 - A splash of colour.

Day 11 - Stamp it out. 

I carved a couple of face stamps for my collection, and used those together with a couple of my other stamps, some collage, scribbled text, and found text. I think someone's been scribbling on the walls! 😁

Junk Journal January - Days 7-9

 Hello All.

I'm sharing a few more pages for Junk Journal January today.

Day 7 - Positive Vibes. I love my creative online community of friends, this is for all of you! Let's face it, you're the best! I wonder if I can share these faceless friends with Erika's Let's Face It theme at Art Journal Journey.

Day 8 - Florals. Some ephemera that I've been hoarding for a few years!

Day 9 - Sepia. Teabags, coffee and black ink painted circles, watercolour painted leaves, and some found text. Plus white ink splatters to bring it all together.

Wishing you all a creative Sunday.

Junk Journal January Days 5 & 6

 Hello Everyone.

Here are another couple of Junk Journal January pages.

Day 5 - Fabric. I drew a face on my seed head for Erika's Let's Face It theme at Art Journal Journey.

Day 6 - Inspiration. I used images from a magazine and a bird book for my collage. The yellow stripes are painted with a new neon watercolour paint I received yesterday.

Thanks for visiting me today.

Junk Journal January Days 3 & 4 and a Card

 Hello All.

I have a couple more pages to share today for the Junk Journal January Challenge.

Day 3 - Torn Edges. 

The girl and rat were already part of my page, and I started off adding woven pieces of used, torn masking tape around them. The masking tape had been used on the edges of a painting, so it had some turquoise and black paint on it already, but I added some more Prussian Blue acrylic over the top. 

I used watercolour paint to colour in the girl and rat. The 'tree' is made from a book page that I applied fibre paste to, then painted with watercolour. It has lovely texture. I found some book text that fitted the page, and finished with white acrylic ink splashes.

Day 4 - Stickers. I used some collage items, an old playing card, and stickers that I've had in my stash for a while, most of which were gifted to me.

 I'm linking this page to Erika's Let's Face It theme at Art Journal Journey. Milady has been caught just as she is about to extinguish her candle.

Before I go, here is a little card I made for Art Journey's January challenge, which is to stamp on anything but paper.

Thanks for dropping by my blog today.
