A card and a journal cover


Saw this card on Shari Carrol's blog and knew I had case it. The stamps are Hero arts, SU and Darkroom door. I used distress inks on water colour paper. The splodgy flowers on the right were spritzed with water before stamping.


My first Art journal cover, using Dylusions sprays, acrylic, paints, glass bead gel medium and wax crayons. Wasn't sure about this as It was quite big, so I cut it to size ( may use the other bit for the back!) I covered mount board with some Kay and Co paper I thought would suit, made a little banner and added some letters which I cut from Dylan's downloads.
I plan to make this journal a sampler for various techniques I want to try. The pages are 'work in progress' Thanks for stopping by and I'd appreciate your honest opinions - honest I can take lol!
hugs Joy xx
