Creative Journaling 365 - Day 30

Today I have created just a background for future reference or to add something else to it at a later date. I used 4 colours from Tracy Scott's Limited Edition Fresco Finish paints from PaperArtsy, and The Artistic Stamper's new mini background sets
Lots of paint in streaks as a background, dry and add stamps with one of the paint colours.

 See you tomorrow :)

Creative Journaling 365 Day 26

Ohh Day 26 and this time I played with another technique from leandra of PaperArtsy, but it wasnt teribly good as the grunge paste was bit dry and flaked off, my treasure gold is over 25 years old and need a bit of turpentine, and it came out a biut dark, but it's all a learning curve and i love that I can experiment, as it is only for me, and for you if you are reading this.
Se yuou tomorrow

Creative Journaling 365 - Day 25

Hi! My journal is becoming a series of experiments with products. As this journal is just for me, i know it will develop and some pages will be good, some ok, and others downright awful, b ut it doesn't matter, i am creatin g a little bit of art everyday. Today's experiment is with PaperArtsy Crackle Glaze and their infusions and a mask which i found in my stash. Add a few words, and my page is probably done lol

Creative Journaling 365 - Day 23

I started this page a couple of days ago with some left over texture paste that has sand in it, and added it to my book.. now wishing i hadn't ( as the book is now more than lumpy bumpy! but hey ho, life is like that, so i coloured around it with watercolour pens and some Dylusions in water brushes ( great for travelling.
See you tomorrow for Day 24.

Hi, ooh Day 22 : Ethereal page with lots of sprays all allowed to dry naturally, and more pear stamps stamped in Archivals, which have blended with the sprays strangely. It is calling out for words, but they are alluding me.. never was very good with words on my pages  :)

Hope you are enjoying the journey

Creative Journaling 365 - Day 15

Today's page took a little longer than I had planned, and i think i could add more to it, and may go back to it.
I just used some scraps of paper i found when clearing out my car!! ( don't ask!) and glued them down in a haphazard fashion, add some Distress crayons, and some distress ink stamping with my mini polka dot background. I felt it needed more, so add some washi tape, and then the word collage which are grungeboard shapes from years ago, and more distress crayon. Looking at it now, I feel it needs more in the middle. I will leave that for another day.

See you tomorrow

Creative Journaling 365 - Day 14

Two Weeks, and I have kept it up! How I have no idea, except i think it is addictive.. pen to paper, paper to page, add colour, add a little of this and a little of that. Make it Simple.. complicated makes it tiresome!
Here is day 14's page , one of my favourites so far. Wrapping paper from my presents over the weekend, DecoArt media paints slapped a little on the background, cut out the flowers from the paper, add some white pen around them. Tip: I wrote absolute garbage ( well almost! ) to make the writing decorative.

Creative Journaling 365 - Day 13

Hi! I am so getting into the doing a page or putting art together everyday. i am getting very little done of anything else! oops! Today's page is some dry brushing for the background with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints, and then i stamped very randomly with one of my flower background stamps, also with PaperArtsy paints. I added on of my favourite stencils with more paint, and a white pen. I hope you like.

Creative Journaling 356 - Day 12

Day 12, and i am on a roll..lots of left over paint swiped down the page and mooshed around with a water wipe. then a Tim Holtz mask with more left over paint, and rub ons for the words. Not sure if i should have just left it as it was, but there you go.. Day 12 journal page.

Creative Journaling 365 - Day 11

Day 11! Today I did a page, which to be honest I actually don't like! I used some of the Prima Art Alchemy paints, which have a metallic sheen to them. I didn't like them on this particular page, and then I added some wing stencils with the same paint, and a download of children borrowed from Angie, plus a bit of handwriting. Nah.. not a good page, but a page nonetheless! It's a learning curve this #creativejournaling365....

Creative Journaling 365 - Day 9

Today I sketched a bit, and added some water soluble wax crayons. I used a black Stabilo All pencil to outline, and forgot that they are also water soluble, so when i blended with water, so did the black! Looks messy, but actually i don't dislike it. Creative Journaling is all about learning and the mistakes.

Creative Journaling 365 - Day 8

I went a bit more "let's do a journal page" today, and using just 3 colours of Dylsuions sprays sprayed a few patches, added a couple of background stamps and a phrase stamp, a printed phrase and some tape, plus a white pen.

See you tomorrow

Creative Journaling 365 - Day 5

Day 5 and I am using up my stash! I am not spending long on the pages, as time is of an essence, so if you are thinking they have to be intricate and detailed, why worry? My idea is that you will get better and add more stuff to the pages and go back to some of them ( I definitely will!) . This page uses Prima papers ( in my stash for years!), a paint chip from Dulux, that fitted into the scheme, and a Bo Bunny Flower I have coveted for ever, plus a tag from White Stuff clothing that was just too nice to throw away!
See you tomorrow
