WOYWW! Art journalling! My own writing… With Fairefoxes

This week’s WOYWW is missing the very important part … one might say pivotal… the picture of my desk! This is because I left this morning for work without taking the picture I meant to of my crafting space! Doh! Last night I had been crafting – finishing the journal page – I remembered the picture of that last night – just forgot the actual desk! Doh! If I get a chance later I will rectify this and take a pic and then update this blog post!

Anyways – I am doing this on my lunch at work – trying not to go out at lunch and spend money so thought a bit of blog hopping would be a good distraction… so will be shortly popping to Julia’s blog to go nosey round the other crafty spaces people are sharing – it’s fun to be nosey – and in most cases be inspired!

So what do I have to share… that’s right my journal page!

This page for Rae’s challenge is a few weeks out of sync…. Use my own writing!

I hate my writing and so have got a book to inspire me but not had a chance to use it yet… So this is without that much needed inspiration…

I used a Julie Nutting stamp which I paper pieced on top of a paint background using bubble wrap to stamp and credit card to create the lines. Also in the background is a crown I was sketching, a foreign stamp that fell out of the ephemera box so I stuck down and then a heart I stamped on some random painted cardstock and added the stamped words from the Happy Thing stamp set.

Then I added some doodling and outlining to the girl and then the words using a Calligraphy pen.

Looking forward to using the book as soon as I get there… Will have to post a review when I have had a chance to read it properly.

Happy crafting!

  2. Beautiful page πŸ™‚ Love how you paper pieced the image. I too hate my writing but am trying to use it more on my pages. Happy creating! Shel-PaperOctilloStudio #42

  3. Happy WOYWW. I love journaling with mixed media, but have not done it myself. I did start last year doing some digital journaling, and really enjoyed it. Need more hours in the day! Ali x #43
