Wasn’t really sure where this page was heading but the panda worked out well in the end and I spotted some bird like shapes in the background which developed on the page sat in their little nests. Mainly used acrylic paints, but the added oil pastels and used stabilo all pencils in black/white.
Inked up a never been used stamp for these coins and then created my own little bodies by sketching and using washi tape for the dress. Used some neon pink smudges which has to be one of my favourite colours and dribbled some acrylic inks in a nice vibrant blue. My coins were layered together with some tuille fabric and I whizzed around with my sewing machine.
Been a while since I have painted in my art journal and this page is inspired by the animal art created by Micki Wilde in her The StoryTellers class. I used PaperArtsy Fresco paints, Big brush Pitt pens and a black watercolour pencil.
Been making some journals using Gelli prints inspired by Birgit Koopsen 31 days of Gelli prints challenge. As you can see I made lots out of my prints and they will make some nice craft gifts.
These mini journals which are just 7cm by 5 cm were inspired by a YouTube video by Teresa Morgan went slightly off piste and have used them for my 2018 gratitudes rather than just jotting them down on scraps and dropping them into a box. Will need to make more of these.
