Hello and welcome to my work desk this week.
It was half term last week and I managed to have some extra precious crafting time! I finished a few cards using the Papermania toppers and a few more I found lurking at the bottom of a drawer! I'm not a great birthday card maker (I LOVE making Christmas cards tho!) so the quicker the better for me.
I have been staring at this unfinished journal page for about two weeks with absolutely NO inspiration at all, all I knew was that it was about our ski trip. Cool mountains huh?
So this is what is on my desk today.
I was going to use my tree stamp you can see but it was too big so I decided to paint my own.
No words yet, I'm still thinking about that. I want to use the little 'I love winter' stamp from Hobbycraft somewhere on the page too.
I have only been keeping an art journal since last October and at first I was scared stiff of the white empty page staring up at me. I bought some cheap paints and just started to experiement with colours and gesso and stamps etc.. and finally when I realised mistakes didn't matter, I started to enjoy creating a page.
This is my favourite so far, inspired by the fantastic skydive by Felix Baumgartner last year. Imagine floating up above the earth to 24 miles high and then jumping out.......I think I went to Tesco's that day!
A bit of an attempt at steampunk!! The washers I found in the garage and the little gold thingamy in the top right was off of an empty ink cartridge!
That's all for now. Have a happy and creative week xxx
