She Believed She Could...

Hi Everyone! 

First of all, let me share with you my Week 24 teabags for the 365 Somethings Challenge. 

These teabags were started with a circle of book page and a smaller circle of gelli-printed tissue. I then scraped on some DecoArt crackle paste. Once that was dry, I stamped some PaperArtsy Hotpick images, first with Fresco Paint, then I over-stamped with black archival ink. I added some stamped quotes, then finished with some painty splatters.

I also created a journal page for Gill's Inspired By challenge at Art Journal Journey, which started off being inspired by a couple of YouTube videos I watched, then soon went off in another direction!

I started with another page in my gelli-print journal, adding collage scraps, and painty marks, then stamped a Dina Wakley Scribbly Woman, painted her a body etc., then added a quote.

Hope you've had a creative Monday too,

Alison xox

  8. I simply adore your teabag art. The way you create in a series each week amazes me. These are simply special, too. I am in awe.

    You have come up with a great journal page for Art Journal Journey. I like the circles you used in the background and how you layered the sentiment. Of course, I like how you drew the outfit on the lovely stamped girl, too. We are thrilled you shared this with us at Art Journal Journey, too.

  9. Gorgeous how you created your teabag circles - each in another design and all with great textures!
    Your artjournal page in your gelli-print journal is very beautiful, also full of textures and structures!

  10. Hands down to these new stunning set, love the texture and soft colours! And ..I'm envying you, in Italy we don't have these rounded tea bags :-(

  11. Wow, the layers of papers and colours on your teabags are amazing! The offset stamping of paint and black ink works so well 😁. I also love all the detail you created on your journal page too, her hair colours look so wonderful! Sending you happy and creative wishes! J 😊 x
