more fish…

Loving this new paper from the Flamingle range by a Polish company.

I used the last of the beautiful fish, I LOVE THEM!!!!

A very busy background and I have used loads of layers of patterned paper, mostly old stash pages, but I like the crazy mix I have going on. Its green, and thats my fav colour!

my 12 journal pages finished

Number 4 is now journaled on, I just forgot to re photograph it. Also number 11 is journaled on, its white pen on the right hand edge, its hard to see in the photos.

I must say Im pretty happy with these pages, and now Im going to try one without the help of my tutor..Wilna, and without her delightful illustrations. They may not be as pretty as these 12 but I must keep trying.

page 12 of my art journal

This is the last page of the Wilna Furstenberg class I too recently. I have enjoyed every minute of the class, watched the videos many times over and spent hours playing in my journal. I had a few set backs with the last page, but kept working, and finally it turned out ok. I wish I had of had a zebra on my patterned paper like Wilna did, but I tried using a few old book pages.

This time I think I rushed it a bit, as Im so eager to start another page.

I didn’t wait for it to dry between applications of holding paste, and thats a big mistake. Anyway Im happy with how it turned out and the texture I reapplied and I love it. Its a stencil by Celebr8 called Succulent garden.

I have had the calico house forever!!!! I actually had 2, one was spotty and I recently used it on another layout. This one finally got its day. I cut the 3 flying ducks out using my silhouette cameo machine, they represent the beswick ducks my grandparents had on their wall for as long as I can remember.

Using some scrapbooking paper as my starting point….this paper was from Ruby Street when I lived in Cairns and first started scrapbooking. I love it a lot but it has to be used, and although I end up covering most of it, I know its there.IMG_5155

Some acrylic ink and white paint and lime green ink…..

Prussian Blue paint, Im not liking what this is looking like here and had to keep adding to it….

This is it so far, I really love all the crazy colours so I think I will leave it at that and do some journaling on it, just waiting for it to dry.

I love this layout I recently made of Brad with the caravan. This picture was taken a while ago, and I have wanted to document it, so here it is. Ive used the last of the fish from the book pages on here just so I could keep some of them, I love them.
