Whats your passion?
Journal 52 week 23 and our prompt was Passion with the added piece asking us What we were passionate about. Well besides my family, my immediate answer is crafting and in particular getting inky, messy and having a great time. For me this an escape to a different world, no rules, no restraints, just go with the flow.
This journal page started off, with a few glued on pieces from an old book and was random stamped with leaves. Colour washed with Sky and Vintage Lace Frescao paints. I then added a bit of stenciling , next up was a piece of corrugated card, before sptitzing the page with Dylusions white linen.
All the stamps used are from sets by Stampers Anonymous.
The small butterflies were heat embossed then water coloured.
The dragon fly after being stamped on the page was stamped again then fussy cut it before water colouring. To highlight the stencil I did use some Olive bronze, Treasure Gold, wax. A little distress ink Weathered wood around the edges and I decided to stop.
The current challenge page for CC3 challenge 4 over at Linda Ledbetters, is for us to use Page 49 in the Compendium of Curiosities book as our guide. As I knew I was entering this challenge I did go into details about how I did part of the page. bet you all can guess which bit.
The new challenge over at A Vintage Journey challenge 8 is -- Wings and Things. where they hope we will be inspired by Tim Holtz. I have to say yes I was big style, with this page, it so reflects how he has inspired me to use his products in ways that I would never thought possible when I began my personal journey many years ago.
Thank you for stopping by. I always appreciate the comments you leave me.
