Seek Gather Create Week Two and AJJ Where In The World

 Hello Friends.

Here is my week two junk journal page for the Seek Gather Create Instagram challenge. 

The 4 items to use were...

Acid Green, Fabric, Puzzle, Pebbles.

I'm linking my page to Chris' theme of Where In The World theme at Art Journal Journey. South London/Bexleyheath is where I grew up, and I've spent my married life in Orpington. I used the relevant piece of page from an old map book.

I've used PaperArtsy stamps on my gelliprint page and on the puzzle piece, and I created the 'pebbles' by making tiny blobs with a glue gun, then painting them with PaperArtsy Fresco acrylics.

Thanks for popping by my blog.

I used a Canadian postage stamp which shows dragon boat racing in Vancouver.

Fodder Challenge 2023 - Part One

 Hello Everyone.

Fodder School recently ran a free Fodder Challenge on Instagram, featuring 12 mini classes from the tutors in their up-coming year long class. The year long class is a bit pricey for me, so I love it when they do the freebie πŸ˜€

Here is the first installment showing what I created. I only managed 9 of the classes in the time frame, so I picked my favourites.

Day One - Watercolour foliage with Tiffany Sharpe.

Day two - Book cover with gelli-printed collage fodder with added marks, with Barb Smucker.

Day three - Floating quote quartet with Alison Bomber.

Day 5 - Mixed media tokens with Kecia Deveney.

Day 6 - Gelli printed fabric ribbons with Yetunde Rodriguez.

Apologies for the photo heavy post. As you can see, there was quite a variety of amazing projects. Thanks for staying till the end of my post πŸ˜€

I'll be back with the rest of the projects tomorrow.
