So the summer holiday is here and I like to have a little art journal, that I can just toss in my bag when I am out and about.
I have some 12x12 grunge board that sits around waiting for projects like this as it can take a little rough treatment and that's what happens to anything sitting in the bottom of my bag.
On card I stamped the clock,key and dancer. The clock and key were stamped on card painted black and covered with gilding flakes. The dancer was just stamped in black ink. I used the words mask to add the word Art to the corner with texture paste.
Once they were dry I added the swirls using Phthola Turquoise. After deciding I did not like the word white, I painted it black and added a little gilding flake. I finished off by adding some circles using a white pen and a little doodling with a black pen. I then stitched in the pages and added a ribbon to close.
And of course I couldn't waste the left over paper so I made this note pad.
Here I have just added more words from the same mask with black paint, and stamped the Decay swirl,
Thank you for reading
