Well hello Peeps,
Today I have started on a new - and slightly scary - project for me..... JOURNALING. !!
I got this amazing notebook from SMEARED INK ages ago as part of a prize, and I just sit looking at it sometimes and generally coveting it and not wanting to blemish the pristine, virgin pages inside in any way !!
Having had recent discussions with an awesome artist friend of mine.. I was being heavily persuaded to give journaling a go but I still remained hesitant - until yesterday when I found this amazing FREEBIE quote from GINGER's HOUSE. :-D So I have used it as my first page along with my Scaredy Cat and I made the opposite page with some Dictionary definitions of the word Journal.
Having actually stuck something in it, I thought I may as well take a further plunge and do another couple of pages. I sat thinking about what to do and then I thought - well do something you know or like,.... Right ? - so here is my next one which goes over the two pages.
I LUV cats, so that is what it's all about.
I got some old dictionary pages with the definition of CAT on them and slapped them in first. Recently I also got this purr-fect little kitty from A DAY FOR DAISIES . He is called 'Fairy Kitty' and is the Freebie with the current Challenge. I shaded the top image with a very pale grey Promarker, but it doesn't show too well on the pic. I printed him twice and used some nail varnish on his wings and then cut out his body again to mount on foamies for a bit of pop. The nail varnish had bits of glitter and flowers in it and looks very pretty close up. It's called "Richmond Gardens" by Nails Inc. but it's an absolute sod to try and get off your nails - even with a ton of varnish remover - so I am going to just use it for crafting. !! :-)
I printed several bits on there with various cat stamps and then I found a fabulous poem by ELEANOR FARJEON, called 'Cats Sleep', so I wrote it out in the shape of a cat's butt and tail on the other page.
Well - I guess that's just about it, but I now have another idea brewing which was inspired by another poem by Eleanor, so that's coming up another day :-D
Thanks for stopping by. xxx
