Well Good Morning Peeps. SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM are having their May Blog Hop and there's going to be lots of exciting projects to see, so I hope you will pop round to everyone and have a look. I have put the Blog List down underneath. They always have very exciting things to see - so don't miss out. :-D
I missed out on getting on the List but I did make something.
Oh, No... it's OK... I'm on the Blog List now... YaY... Thanks Tori xxx
This is a 'newbie' for me.... I tried an Art Journal. I'm going to enter this in the ROCK n ROLLA Challenge at Smeared & Smudged coz I was inspired by this month's Vid - Tom Petty. It's a great video with the song.... you should go see :-) Click HERE to have a look.
Here's my effort...... took me ages and I was a bit out of my comfort zone, but I am sort of pleased with it - it kinda' connects and flows through... I think !! :-)
It's a big A4 watercolour book I decided to use so here are the pages individually.....
Click on pic to enlarge.
On the left page, my main image is called "Laura The Librarian" from Opal Manor. I coloured her to look like Alice and wrote on her book cover. She also has glossy accents on her glasses :-) The bat is from the 'Little Bit Batty Set' by Smeared Ink. I tried embossing a net in gold on a painted background but you can't really see it, and my background went a bit 'muddy' :-( I got some lace on there too and used stamp pads to blob over it. The flowers are the bits left from die cuts, and I also used some as a stencil in the background there.... see ???? ! I wrote a couple of quotes from AIW book on there too. :-D
This is the right-hand page and the background was done with inks and various stencils. I drew a b/w room. The Raven is from Smeared Ink's 'Quoth The Raven' Rubber set, which I got from their Rubber Club :-D Cool eh ?!! More doodling and stuff and my Cheshire cat in the corner.
OK that's it - not too bad for a newbie maybe ?!!
So here's the official Blog Hop List if you would like to go and look around :-)
IKE - that's me :-)
