Here's a journal page that I created during my time offline when the dreaded tree fell onto our phone line.
I was fortunate enough to attend a couple of Dina Wakley's classes recently and this work was inspired by her class on composition.
I started with a couple of strips of newsprint; stencilled some crackle medium through an alphabet stencil; made bold brushstrokes using Silks; printed with string; printed Joie de vivre; sprayed mica inks; printed with lids and splattered some watered down paint.
The stamp on the tag is a recent purchase from Paperartsy.
Really enjoyed playing in this relaxed style!
oh I would have loved this class, your journal page looks fabulous! Looks like you used your offline time to great advantage!!ReplyDelete
I'd forgotten about your line being out....probably because I'be not been around much myself with mum in hospital.ReplyDelete
Love your journal page Hazel.. lots of tricks & techniques you managed to incorporate into a really nice uncluttered page.
What a fabulous class..... your journal page is great....I love that stamp tooReplyDelete

Great to see you using your new found skills on your journal pages Hazel, loving all your different techniques. Your colour choices are inspired as is all the wonderful white space. I do enjoy a bit of white space, really adds depth and light, quite wonderful :-) xxxReplyDelete
Wow, a fabulous page Hazel, I love the Joie de Vivre stamp, and your textures and colours are beautiful. I do love what you've achieved here - and how lucky you were to go to a couple of Dina Wakeley's classes - I am quite envious!!ReplyDelete
