It's weekend - enjoy!
The weather is not quite as sunny as it was the past 2 days,
but it's a bit milder, so that makes up for it. I was able to have a short
walk again. I wanted to pick up some lovely shells and feathers
I saw, but can't bend down yet because of my ribs.
I will find some another time!
For Art Journal Journey, Erika's theme of 'tell me a story',
I have 2 pages in my 2nd new journal,
which is already 'old' and nearly full!
The first page is a heap of words, you have to make
the story yourself! The 2nd page is about childhood
memories, I used to love watching my aunt cook
and bake, and being able to 'help', and
lick the spoon....
I am in a tag phase just now. This one is about 10", and once again
made of recycled cardboard, partly peeled. I covered it with a mix of Golden crackle paste mixed with sky blue paint. The Euro shop recently
had a variety of expensive brand names in crafty stuff for 1€ each,
which was great. I roughed it up with a palette knife and
added some Frantage EP. The other colours were added with
Gelatos and a water-brush. The birds are from a serviette,
which I pasted onto thin card and then fussy cut.
The red berries were made from small balls (Pentart),
painted red, and the eggs are larger balls painted egg-shell blue
and then crackled. The nest was embellished with a remnant
of Christmas decoration band and some feathers.Then
I sewed it to an old calendar page.
