For Art Journal Journey, collage, I have another hybrid creation today. The background is a photo of a ship in the London docks. I grew up near the docks, but in the meantime it has all become a playground for the very rich. Back then, we could see big ships at the end of the street, a fun sight! Here I added my fave Mr Umbrella man, out for his evening walk, and a girl and her bike, both from a digital set called paper town. The moon is one of my photos. The stenciled sentiment is from Stencilry com.
For 99 Faces I drew a face on patterned cardstock with black ink, and painted her eyes, mouth and eyebrows with blue ink. I dribbled some blue and green ink at the top, sprayed it with water and let it run down the page. When it was dried I added some white to brighten it a bit. Also linking to Kim's Show your face.
And as today is all about blue, I am including the tag I made for Tag Tuesday yesterday, theme 'night sky'. I painted directly onto a manila tag using my scratchy brush, sprinkled it with fairy dust, and added some stars when it was dry. The houses were drawn with a stencil, and I mounted the tag onto 2 others cut slightly larger from blue Mirri card and gold corrugated card.
I didn't have much time for taking photos today, as I had a long appointment at the orthopedic specialist. In February I will be getting a shiny new knee joint.
The pictures here were taken early this morning - the sky was clear, the moon and stars were twinkling. I especially love the combination of the crescent moon and Venus
Have a good day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
