Something for Everyone

Below are several art journal pages
I recently discovered in my A4 Dylusions
journal. I have used a wide variety
of stamps, stencils & other bits n pieces.
 I adore the quote stamps from Dyan Reavely, 
I have many in my collection including
the ones below.
 Madonna was drawn and coloured by the 
incredibly talented Lily Chilvers, sadly taken
 from this world at the tender age of 21.
Such a huge loss to the creative world.
She left behind some incredible work which
I am proud to use.
 The stamp images below are from Lynne
Perrella at PaperArtsy. The fan die cut is by
 Tattered Lace.
 The photograph doesn't do the colours in the 
page below justice. I used lots of gold paint
and inks along with some super stamps by
Artistic Stamper.
 I wanted to keep this page simple 
by using only 3 colours as I felt the 
image was very strong and stood by
itself alone.
 As some of you will know the semi-colon
is a symbol of strength and survival
of people who are suffering and have 
suffered with a mental health illness. 
My page below is a very personal page
and I am pleased to say that I am a
 A fun page using big lips and a great
zip die cut.
 Finally this last page features Totally Tracy
 flower stamps. The small flowers and butterfly 
were designed by Hels Sheridan. The butterfly
is on card that has been alcohol inked.
I hope the variety in these pages will 
inspire you to get creating.

Vera Lane Studio Journal Pages

Below are 3 journal pages using Vera Lane Studio
digi images. They are 8" x 8" in size.
 I have used a variety of paints, stamps and stencils, and 
added a cat image from ZinskiArt on the page below.
 The animal characters below are from Octopode.
My favourite part of the above three pages is my hand painted tree in the page above. I finished off this page using stamps from IndigoBlu.

I hope these give you a little bit of inspiration for you own journal pages.

We Will Rock You!

I have been enjoying painting rocks and hiding them for others to find recently. This is something that goes on all over the UK and I believe other countries too. 

I have painted many many rocks but so far only found one, I was so excited I couldn't wait to post my photo on Facebook !

Below are a couple of the rocks I have painted.

Eileen's rock is very special, I painted it in memory of a truly wonderful lady who is missed very much
