Butterfly Card

Just a quick post today to share a card I made yesterday.
I am using up bits and pieces that I have, and the butterfly embossed background is one that was lying around waiting to be used.

I hope you are having a crafty day.
Happy stamping!

Art Journalling

I am finally feeling brave enough to start sharing my Art Journalling pages.  Some of them were done last year and I will get to those as well.  Right now however, I am going through a process of art journalling, a personal journey, hopefully one that will help me to move forward, become more sure of myself and my creative side.  Along side of that, I am also doing a course in Art Therapy and I look forward to sharing some of my art that I create during that course.  I will be putting the Art Journal creations onto a separate page as well as this main one, so that you can follow along with my journey from the start if you wish to.
So here is today’s page.

And yes, this journey is going to be personal, at times it will probably be raw, and emotional.  However it will most definitely be honest.
And I will also share how I went about creating my pages.
Today’s page:  I start out with some Ranger inks which I smooched onto a craft sheet and then sprayed with water.  I then used a paint brush and painted approximate flower shapes randomly over my page, just adding colours as I wanted them.  I then spritzed a little more water over the paint to make it more washy.  Once that dried I took a word stencil ( in this case, the Kaszazz “Destiny” stencil), and picked out the letters I wanted to use, and sponged the letters on to my page.
Then I used Kaszazz Bricks stencil and sponged around the flowers and anywhere I wanted the brick background.
Last but not least, some doodling with a black Dylusions paint pen around the flowers, the words and up the side of the page, and added the writing.
And that’s it!  That is my first page in my very personal journey.  It’s personal but I do hope you will follow along and perhaps be brave enough to join me.
