    I’m still having great fun playing with Carolyn Dube’s free Use Your Words workshop. Today I finished Wednesdays assignment.

    Dance! - A Colourful Workshop - Use Your Words

    I started by printing the quotation and gluing it to the page, then added colour using a mixture of dripped and sprayed Twinkling H2O’s – very messy! Using the same colours, I painted a panel which I’d embossed using a gear embossing plate, then brushed it with a black staz-on ink pad to give it some extra depth. I created the word dance using a plastic letter stencil then cut the letters up and taped them together. The dancer I cut out from a computer image and painted using acrylic paint.

    It was a very messy project, but I had great fun with it!

    Getting Messy!

    Once again I’m playing catch-up! I’ve been having so much fun getting messy, I just haven’t had the time to post the images!

    On Friday I played with some embossed flowers, trying to colour them using a couple of ink pads. It didn’t work quite as I planned. Instead of nice clean colour on the raised areas, I ended up with a very dirty, grungy looking image (and a very dirty grungy me, covered in ink!). Not being one to let these things deter me, I stuck the image to a page in my notebook and created a grunge border round it using acrylic paint and an old credit card (getting covered in paint this time!). I think it looks alright now. What do you think?

    Embossed Flowers

    Yesterday I finally got around to completing this week’s Life Book Lesson from Monica Zuniga. I was a bit apprehensive when I watched the video, but once I got started I had so much fun (I got covered in paint and glue with this one!)! I started by creating a painted background, but once I created my doll and put her on it she disappeared, so I decided to use a plain black background. I created the doll using a collage of a mixture of stamped and embossed images, with the exception of the face which I scanned from a magazine and altered digitally, then coloured her using watercolour pencils. I’m really pleased with the way she turned out. Do you like her?

    Collage Doll

    Today I thought I’d play digital and mess free! I started with a photograph of sand patterns I took last week, then added a scan of an acrylic paint background I made a while ago and blended them together.

    I really love how the colours draw you into the image.

    Catching Up!

    I’m playing catch up today – it’s been a really busy week!

    Flower Blend

    On Tuesday, I created a couple of backgrounds using a mixture of acrylic paint and ink. I scanned them both into the computer then added a photograph of some flowers and blended them to create this image.

    Doll Bird Doodle

    On Wednesday I followed a video from Doll Dreams teaching us how to draw these cool doll birds! I tried it out in my everyday notebook using a uniball eye pen, then did the doodle later using my rapidograph pen while I was on the telephone! I didn’t plan for them to go together, but I think they do anyway! Do you agree?

    r-evolution!

    Today I had fun playing with all sorts. I started by colouring the page with neocolour crayons, then collaged an embossed sheet which I had coloured with distress ink and the stamped image of the globe which I cut out. Next I added the text which I printed on the computer and coloured using a watercolour pencil and a gold marker pen. Finally, after scanning, I added a bit of digital shading and distressing. I really like how it turned out. What do you think?
