Hi everyone just thought you might like some colour in your lives to remind you that Spring is just around the corner.
Don’t you just love those dylusions paints.
You are currently browsing the Shirls Cards blog archives for January, 2017.
I went for Spring with my DT piece and as you can see love is definitely in the air with this make.
Unusual for me to have hearts on my card but because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner I made this for Clare to give to JP.
The script heart stamp is a discontinued one but it was made by Anita’s and the LOVE stamp is from Studio 490.
Showing the card that my Saturday class made which was mainly about the water colouring and die cutting.
The backgrounds on both cards were water coloured and I used the die cuts for dry embossing rather than cutting out.
Apart from the flowers and birds which were cut out and glued on afterwards.
Both cards together.
Dot and I both agree that we wished we had started our art journaling in a smaller book rather the the normal A4 size.
Feeling more comfortable with this A5 book because when starting something in the larger version my interest tends to wane before it is finished. Where as with this one I can’t wait to finish.
Love the first page with all the sewing, stencilling and collaging but the second isn’t too shabby either … lol.
Used the same colours on the second page but whereas the first has collaged layers the second is one flat layer. Both are a nice contrast to each other.
Finally bought one of those small date stamps because when looking back at the pages I like to know when it was started.
Close up pick of those collaged layers.
Already started the next pages!!!
