Birthday and a New Art Journal

 First up, today is my beautician's birthday.
Happy Birthday, Hayley, hope it was fabulous.
I selected some soft colours and die cut
Tim Holtz wildflowers.
While they were drying, I used
the negative space as stencils over
the Kaisercraft Stamp.
Colours - Distress Ink;
Spun Sugar/ Milled Lavender/
Dried Marigold & Bundled Sage.
I spirtzed the die cuts with pearlised 
water so they dried shimmery. 

Next is the start of my brand new
Art Journal!
I have a couple of pages left in the last one
to complete. But, i was so
eager to begin.
This format is the same as my last
journal but instead of double page
spreads I have cut them into single pages.

Each page will begin with a dictionary page
and a single word and definition will
be masked off while I create.
The mask will be removed at the end
and the word highlighted.

First page is Courage.

 Stamp - Dina Wakely
Texture paste through home made
stencils using Tim Holtz media dies.
Colours are;
Dylusions paints and LSG sprays
Bo Bunny texture stamps
Heidi Swapp Gold spray splattered
Gold paint.Chit chat stickers.
 The colours are more vivid than they look here.

Second page Valentine
 
Texture paste through a CW stencil.
Colours; Primary Elements pigments
Chit Chat Stickers.
Heart designed by (I believe) Penny Bearcroft 
for Stamp Bug 
French wording stamp - Lime CitrĂ³n. 

These pages come together quicker than
the double spreads and I have already
got a set more pages to work on.
(Dictionary purchased for 99p 
from The Works just to cut up)

Two More January Birthdays

 First two images are two
slightly different views of
a shaker card made for Pauline.
A 40th birthday so 40 confetti.
 Basic Grey Paper, Tim Holtz Word die
Jar stamp and die.

This image is of the inside stamping.
I just coloured with a shimmer pen.
 

This next one is a more
colourful, graphic design for
my friend Rachel.
 
 Word dies were die cut 
from pink glitter paper to
match the triangles on the
Papermania Neon Geometrics paper.
I also added glitter pink dots 
at the top & tiny triangles
inside the squares.
Words and squares are Papermania
Polaroid die set.
Dream Big is a Papermania stamp.

This image shows the paper added on the inside.
