Journal panel (No 24)

Hello friends

Hope you are all good and are enjoying the beautiful sunshine...
I Just wanted to pop in and share with you this vintage inspired journal panel...I was inspired to create this after watching Finnabairs Facebook live... it really inspired me.

The original page is from a vintage book which I mounted onto some grey board, 
I then added lots of layers of gesso, crackle paste, design tapes,ribbons and lace...
The photo is a Tim Holtz photo booth photo and the butterfly, design tape words and paperclip are all  from Tim Holtz  Idea-ology 
I used finnabair Art-Alchemy Rustic brown and vintage rose paints
and I added some vintage watches from my stash.... 
To finish I added some rusty wire to create a hanging.... 
I love adding layers and this make has many!
As always feel free to leave a comment I appreciate each and everyone!

Have a lovely weekend

Live in the moment...

Hello friends
Hope you are all good!
The Easter holidays are over....
I'm back to the day job's really 
going to be a struggle to get back into a routine!

So a really quick post to share with you this cover of a blank journal...
I started by applying a wash of Dylusions paint (dirty martini) and gesso to the cover of the book...
Then  re-using a polka-dot paper gift bag, I set about layering it with old text pages...
I then added more gesso and some of my new favourite slate grey, dylusions paint.
 The photo is from Tim Holtz photo booth, I also used some of Tim's  Idea-ology findings
 I added some vintage lace, some rusty wire and to finish I added some stitching. 

I added splats of ground coffee dylusions paint and re-purposed some ric rac ribbon that was originally on a gift bag I had....( Remember I hoard everything!)
As always please feel free to leave a comment....I appreciate you passing by!

Have a great week!
Bye for now

Heart and Soul

Hello friends

I hope you are all good!
Just a really quick blog post today to share with you this make...

I created this mini box using some old bolts, an old camera parts, a butterfly from Tim Holtz Botanicals ephemera pack and some rust paste and Art stones from Finnabair.... 

I added some rusty wire and stitched into the butterfly.... 
The words are from Tim Holtz too ( clippings - idea-ology)

I really love the effect from the rust paste....
