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.

  8. Sorry I'm late visiting. I've had no internet or phone since last Monday afternoon, but stopped by to say how much I love the beautiful pages you created. I was most impressed with the recycling of the tape, and the way you tore that playing card. Would never have known what it was had you not told us. And my heart went pitter patter over that card. You stamp so well and that ink is really BLACK. I also like how you stapled the fabric to the rest of the piece. I'm catching up right now and it is taking longer than I anticipated.


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