Kathys Sketch file

This is the sketch for October over at Kathy's sketch file...




I made this card:-


the background was created using dylusion ink sprays then using a stencil and water to add some bleaching content, my attempt to "dribble" without a pipette is down the side!!  I then stamped a couple of dylsuions stamps to the side and then bleached out colour again...

Then I made this piece:-

but it told me it wasn't happy and wanted to be part of something much bigger so it turned into this:-


which is my third art journalling page - I love this art journalling malarky!! this page consists of texture paste used thro a Tando stencil/mask, acryllic paints,water soluble wax crayons, distress inks, distress stains, tape....loads of bits....the bird stamps (which my OH say's freak him out) are by Paperartsy as is the tape strip they are standing on and the phrase is from a Tim Holtz set of stamps....the date stamp is from a stationers...

Do pop on over to the sketch file Kathy has loads of sketches up for you to have a go at...

I love, love, love these projects. I adore the swirly ribbons on the first and it's fab to see how you've used the sketch "inside" the much larger journal page - inspired and inspirational, as always
