Week 3 Summer Holidays

Monday designated a pj day by Jess.
I began the week with good intentions but life took over and to be honest not a lot happened.
Tuesday Jess's friend Jess came round few a few hours10-4ish,oh and we had a window cleaner for first time in ever, now booked in on a regular basis so I don't kill myself hanging out of bedroom windows, only thing is that I now have to clean the inside, lol.
Wednesday I began a couple of journal pages, "Stand out from the Crowd" was the finished one which has been posted already the other is a work in progress.
Here is what I have so far.






Thursday I made a card, for my nephew who is one very soon.
I'm afraid I can't show this one yet just in case sister in law is having a peek.
Friday I started and finished another journal page, this time a flat dylusion type page with a touch of doodling. Saturday morning I realised why I don't do this type of page anymore because my right hand feel swollen and hot, pulsating with pain.

 The page started life about a month ago as a pencil drawing which I sealed with soft Matt medium.
Something similar to this one, sorry forgot to take before and during.


A single colour of semi opaque paint was applied all over the page using a distress ink applicator, by just pressing the applicator down I made a random pattern, building up the colour with layers.
Using a black Pitts pen and a white marker I re-drew the face using the pale lines as a guide followed by a a touch more doodling.
Here it is, I think it needs a little something more but to be honest my hands are throbbing at the thought.


 Saturday came and went with a massive migraine headache.
Sunday I caught up on a few house duties, followed by diner at mums.

 
I did manage to pick up a pen again  for a  few dots and touch writing here and there on one of my finished journal covers. The large white arrows were Dylusion stamps used with white paint. I did have to go over a few places because of the spine shape and bent pages. All good fun tho.

Three weeks down, four to go.

  1. Great stuff going on here - I particularly love the brown and teal textured pages (colours right up my street). I'm off to sign up as a follower.
