February Art Marks Day 23 - Invent

Hello Folks! 

I just got back from my usual Tuesday Silver Screen cinema trip. Today I had the company of my lovely friend Jan. We went to see 'Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool', a lovely film about the relationship between ageing Hollywood actress Gloria Grahame, and young Liverpudlian actor Peter Turner. We both loved it. 

Getting back to today's art marks page with the word prompt 'Invent'. I believe this past year I have been re-inventing myself through art journaling. I love the direction I'm taking on this current adventure too.

I used iris images from Vision Express (opticians) junkmail, added teabags, stencilling, and marks. I'm entering my page for MOO-MANIA's Think Of Spring Challenge. Spring is a great time to re-invent ourselves!

We've had a few inches of snow here during the day, so I'm now turning up the heating, and bunkering down till it goes away. Hope you're all keeping warm!

  1. Beautiful journal page, love the colours and the flowers. Glad you enjoyed your film. Hugs, Valerie

  2. This is delightful Alison, I love your reuse of the BIG Iris, the burst of orange compliments its flecks.. I love the thought of reinventing yourself through art, time stops me from walking this path oh so often. Keep them coming Alison as I am loving them.
    Creative wishes Tracey xx
    P.S Glad you enjoyed time with your friend alongside the Film.

  6. Your last 2 journal pages are so vibrant. I love the colors-but I have told you that before! And I haven't heard of that film, but it sounds interesting. I don't know much about film stars from Britain and that golden age of movies. Happy end of February. Hugs-Erika

  7. Oh, how nice that you have commented on me,
    Now I have found a new blog that I like very much.
    I will visit you again.
    Best regards

  8. A wonderful page, Alison

  10. Such a lovely AJ page, Alison. I like how you added the tea bags, a signature for you, lately :-)

  11. Wow, I'm loving your creative style too! This page is amazing and very inventive 😉. The way you used the round images from the vision express junk mail looks amazing when combined with the teabags, flowers and colours you used - stunning 😁. I hope you are having a lovely week, stay warm! J 😊

  12. This is great. I can see that this Instagram challenge is really suiting you. I love the daisy-type flowers and the orange, turquoise and pale blue combination.

  13. We love Silver Screen, hope to see that film too but suspect it will be all change next week! I love this clever page- the colours are great too! Hugs, Chrisx

  14. I am back from my trip, where I spent two very sleepless days and nights. After returning, I crashed and now I am playing catch-up. This is a beautiful page, and I adore that you chose junk mail as part of your page, along with your signature teabags. It is a fabulous way to invent yourself.

  15. I really like your new decorative designs! it's beautiful so much and good idea on site.



Thank you so much for taking the time to stop here. I love to hear what you think, every comment is very much appreciated.
