Dragonfly Journal Page

Hi everybody, I'm sharing a journal page with you today and I'm also entering it into the Art Journal Journey Recycle and Collage challenge.

I used one of the pages in my Dina Wakley joural. I started by making a collage of patterned paper, tissue wrap, music and book pages. I stencilled some modelling paste with a Crafters Workshop stencil. I added some colour with Gellatos and water letting some of the colour run. I dry brushed some Imagination Craft Starlight paint over the stencilling and added some white splatters. The  words were stamped with an Artistic Stamper stamp. For the dragonfly I printed a Gecko Galz image, adhered it to some card and cut it out. I put stickles on the wings before adhering it to the page. Lastly I used a black pen to doodle round the edge of the page.

A close up of the dragonfly - you can just about see the glitter on the wings.

Thank you for visiting my blog, have a lovely weekend. xxx Hazel.

Flower Collage

Hi everybody, today I'm sharing an art journal spread with you that I've made for Alison's Art Journal Journey Collage/Recycle challenge.

The background of my spread is a mop up from another project. I stencilled some script with modelling paste and cut out lots of flowers from some patterned paper and adhered them to my spread. I then adhered the magazine image and more flowers. I added some word stickers and gave the page a coat of matte medium, then I went round the flowers and image with a pitt pen to give them some shadow.

It looks like were going to have another lovely sunny day here, I hope it's going to be the same for you. Thank you for dropping by and have a good day. xxx Hazel.

SPA - Birds

Hi everybody, I hope you're all well and having a lovely weekend in the sunshine
Birds is this weeks theme over at the Sunday Postcard Art challenge.

My postcard has an alcohol ink background. I used a Stampendous stamp and die for the flowers, Katzelkraft stamp for the black birds and a TJ Design stamp for the postmark. The birds are cut out from a paper napkin and the words are Tim Holtz small talk stickers.

Thank you for visiting my blog, have a lovely Sunday. xxx Hazel.

SPA - Water

Water is this weeks Sunday Postcard Art challenge theme.

The background was coloured with acrylic paint and the puddles were stencilled, I drew the rain drops. I stamped the image onto card, coloured it, cut it out and glued it to the card, the stamp I used is a Dylusions stamp.
My card was larger than a postcard so after I wrote the words I took a photo and loaded it into my Serif programme and resized it, I added the pink and green border and added some script and a postmark to the background.

Thank you for looking. xxx Hazel.

AJJ - Recycle and Collage

Good morning all, I hope you're having a good weekend, I had a great day at Ally Pally yesterday, it was lovely catching up with people that I haven't seen for a while and buying new goodies to add to my huge craft stash.

On Wednesday I had a lovely day being creative with my my friend Alison/Craftytrog, she's hosting this months Art Journal Journey challenge, the theme that she's chosen is Recycle and Collage. I made an art journal page, it has a little bit of collage on it so I'm entering it in the challenge.

The background was a mop up page in one of my journals, I adhered a strip of patterned paper on the left hand side of the page and added some stencilling and some stamping with black Archival ink, I then added some strips of patterned paper and the lovely green butterflies that I found on some paper in my stash. The words were stamped onto white paper with Finnabair stamps and I added some remnant rubs. I gave the page a coat of matte medium and when it had dried I used my pitt pens to add some shading.

Thank you for dropping by to take a look, have a lovely Sunday. xxx Hazel.

Mixed Media Canvas

HAPPY EASTER everybody. It's the 1st of the month so that means the start of a new challenge over at Altered Eclectics, the theme as always is anything goes as long as it's Mixed Media/Altered Art, no cards or ATCs are allowed.

For my DT piece I've decorated an 8" x 10" canvas.

I painted the canvas with gesso and adhered some book page strips then I added colour with acrylic paint and a brayer. I stencilled some paint and when it had dried I stamped some postmarks and script with black archival ink. I stamped the Paperartsy flowers onto patterned paper, cut them out and adhered them to the canvas. For the words I used a Paperartsy stencil and modleing paste. I gave the canvas a coat of matte medium and when it had dried I coloured the flowers with my pitt pens and went round them with a black pen, I went over the stencilled words with a white pen.

Thank you for visiting, have a lovely Easter and try not to eat too much chocolate. xxx Hazel.
