Thursday Journal with Neet.

This week the quote is ' What you believe in becomes true. Believe in something absurd'
The only thing I could think of after deciding on the figure, was to make up a ridiculous bird/animal, which is what I have done. Once I had started I enjoyed doing it and it came together quite quickly. Just as well really as I have been at my daughter's in Swindon for the last few days, spent a few hours in the garden when I got home, cooked dinner and then came down to my studio with not an idea in my head.
The background is distress inks with stencils used with the same colours. A bit of stamping and some glueing and it was finished.

Thursday Journal with Neet

"Dinner is poured' are this weeks words, and as my guests have only just gone, this simple one was done in a bit of a hurry. It would be nice if the rain would stop so I could hang the two loads of washing out. We did manage a trip out yesterday to Coombe Court and didn't get too wet so that relieve the pressure of entertaining them indoors.
For this page the background is distress inks and a variety of stencils. I then used two of Dyan's mask/stencils and used black paint for the figures and doodled around and in them.
I am now six weeks behind on my art courses, which is the point I usually reach at the end of March. I really must get back to it again, before I loose the will to do any more. It gets more and more impossible to catch up. I haven't bothered with any 3D ones as I am out of flat places to put them.
I wish it would stop raining as my plants are getting ruined and the iris are looking very sorry for themselves. The roses are all hanging their heads and the lawn is a soggy mess. The new work on the garden has ground to a halt, and I am thankful we didn't open the garden this year.

Tag Tuesday -- Beverages

Valorise theme on Tag Tuesday is Beverages, and I was not sure where to start.
In the end I decided to go for something a bit different and after using tea dye distress ink on the background I stamped the coffee words on top with Expresso ink.
I then painted a little picture in coffee, very strong, and used like a watercolour.

Thursday Journal with Neet

This week it's "I have absolutely no desire to fit in" Now why did I choose this one and give myself a problem. In the end I went for a normal body but a weird head. I used a mop up page with some stencils.
I've been in the garden all day as a way to avoid doing the ironing and getting the guest room ready for Peter's son and wife. Having had a schoolfriend and her husband here last weekend and then my daughter the next night, it's a quick turnaround.
Must do it tomorrow and then think what to feed them with.

Tag Tuesday - Gardening

Joan's theme on Tag Tuesday is gardening. I love my garden, but have been so busy these last few weeks I have hardly had time to do any gardening, let alone make tags.
I have managed to make one with my two of my favourite flowers on, poppies and daisies.
The background is distress oxides and the flowers stamped and coloured with Derwent Intense crayons

Thursday Journal with Neet.

"I'm not getting older, I'm increasing in value"  are the words for this week, and it wasn't easy to choose the figure to go with this one. Dyan does not seem to draw older type figures, so all I did was give her grey hair.
The background is sprayed with Dylusion Inks and stencils used afterwards. I also used some leaf stamps and doodled over them and down the sides.
This is a scheduled post as I am at my daughters helping with the last of the house packing. Just her study and kitchen to do.
Home a day early.  Update, the buyers dropped out with 3 days to go for completion !!!!!.  We had packed up the kitchen, and I can't print what we all said. Karen said she can manage with the things we didn't pack so it the house is back on the market and everything is packed ready.

Try it on Tuesday Make a Mark

Try it on Tuesday has the theme of Make a Mark, and this fortnight I was asked if I would like to be guest designer.
I have used a large Dylusions journal and inked the background with Distress oxide inks. I then used various stencils and inks to make the marks. I also stamped a few simple marks and some script with black ink.
The two figures are also Dylusions, painted with watercolour pens.
