Tree Top Bird

Hi Everyone!

I recently watched a brilliant YouTube video by the talented Giovanna on the GelliArts channel, where she used acrylic inks and re-inkers on her Gelli Plate. 

So yesterday, I tried the technique out myself, and today I was inspired to make this art journal page for Erika's In The Air/Sky theme at Art Journal Journey, using pieces of my prints and Dina Wakley stencils.


Hope you're having a happy & creative day,

Fly a Kite

Hi Everyone!

Can you guess what film I saw recently? I didn't think it was as good as the original, but there were some good effects. It inspired an art journal page for Erika's In the Air/Sky theme at Art Journal Journey though :-)


Whilst I'm here, I have a couple of crochet projects that I recently completed, a bright and funky top for my daughter. She'll be home to claim it on my birthday this Friday.


and a commissioned blanket for my nephew. (Demelza Blanket designed by Catherine Bligh)


Hope you're having a lovely sunshiny week,

Starry Starry Night

Hello Folks! I've made another page for Erika's In the Air/Sky theme at Art Journal Journey. Lots of teabag texture again!


After gluing down multiple teabag papers, I used a Prima stencil to add gold acrylic paint stars, then I used a palette knife to apply Seaglass Fresco Acrylic around the three rectangle teabags to highlight them. I also scribbled in the wet paint with the pointy end of my knife. I doodled some stars, stamped and adhered the words, outlined a few of the gold stencilled stars, then flicked gold paint pen all over the page.


I'm also linking my page to Creative Artiste's Mixed Media Challenge 49.

Happy Tuesday!

Butterflies are Flowers

Hello Friends.

I have another page to share with you, that I made for Erika's In the Air/Sky theme at Art Journal Journey.


Lots of teabag texture, three net teapig bags with butterflies, and a butterfly girl on a sparrow's back. A larger butterfly girl, then scrapes of Seaglass Fresco Finish acrylic, and a blotchy hand-written quote by Robert Frost.


Hope you're having a good week,
