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.
