Paperartsy - Darcy's journalling page - month 2

Well, last month I got left behind and I'm ashamed to say that the first two pages of my journal for 2014 are unfinished!! I did get the 24 layers of paint on, but, thats as far as it got…. I will finish it tho' (when?? lol)

Anyway, this month I'm on the ball…. I was very lucky to meet Darcy at Stevenage where I was a very lucky girl and bought all her new stamps (and the new Paperartsy paints, and a few other sets too - I know how spoilt am I?)

so, armed with new goodies, I've managed to follow Darcy's full and comprehensive instructions and created:-


so, I'm not going into any details here as its a true interpretation, with a few adjustments, of Darcy's pages which you can find here…… I have learnt loads of techniques, and as I'm not an artist, I've played with mixing paint to gain depth and texture - I've really enjoyed getting inky and messy and learning new paint techniques - this is definitely something I will try again.

Here are a couple of close ups…

I'm really looking forward to seeing pages 5 and 6….. thank you for the inspiration Darcy
