This is my first proper blog post in 2 weeks!! On one hand I have missed blogging but I have to admit that the break (even though it was un-intended) has been good!! I am now more or less settled back in at home here in UK and my husband is heading back to work next week so I am looking forward to getting back to more regular creating and therefore blogging.
While he was home one of the things we did was to go to Stafford to see THE STAFFORDSHIRE HOARD......a fabulous collection of Anglo Saxon gold and silver unearthed in a field near Lichfield. This seahorse, which in real life is tiny, was one of my fav things.
I used a leaflet from the exhibition as the background for my pages, cut some pics from a couple of postcards, adding some stencilling and stamped some words.
Making these pages set me off on thinking about what makes a journal.....again!!! I mean does using leaflets and postcards from the exhibition make this more a scrapbook than a journal??? What do you think?? I don't really mind what it's called......art journal or just journal or scrapbook.....whatever it is, it's where I have fun, catalogue things that make me happy/smile/remind me of days out etc etc
I've been asked a few times what I use for my large lettering.....I use these (and other sets) foam stamps that I've had for EVER!! I love them dipped in paint!
Hello and welcome!
I like to travel and I'm incurably curious. I love my garden and I like to make things,
I like altered art and mixed media and have a leaning towards the slightly darker, weirder side of things....as you may notice!
