10th book of the sea page

I blogged this for Sunday postcard art, and have now put it on muslin, and finished it off to go in my book.

Tag Along and Tag Tuesday -- Easter and eggs

The theme on Tag Along is Easter, and last weeks on Tag Tuesday was eggs. I have been away for eleven days looking after my three grandchildren, so hadn't blogged for either of these. I have inked the tag in pastel shades, used a die cut of a broken egg, and filled it full of different eggs. There is a air dry clay birds nest on the main egg. The nest is made up of torn strips of the dictionary definition of egg. The word egg is made from small scrabble tiles.

Sunday Postcard Art -- Lighthouses

I'm a bit late with this, but have been away looking after three grandchildren for eleven days. I am absolutely worn out.
For Sunday Postcard Art the subject is lighthouses. I decided to make a fabric one, as it can go in my book of the sea. I will blog it again when I have put it on a backing for the book, as I will add things to it.

Every Inchie Monday -- Hot

For the theme this week on Every Inchie Monday it is 'hot'
For the card one, I have used some very small pieces of  black, coal like rock, and painted some flames. I have used some yellow and red glitter stickles on top so they look more like flames. Unfortunately this does not show up on the scan.
For the sewn one I have made a hot dog, complete with a squirt of tomato sauce ( thread)

Every Inchie Monday -- Head

Head is the word on Every Inchie Monday this week, and I have made my two in card and fabric. The card one is shrink plastic using a rubber stamp of  ' how to proportion a head for drawing'. The fabric one  is how not to get the  proportions right. She has also had a bad hair day.

Artful Times DT piece for Spray Away

For the theme Spray Away on Artful Times, I decided to do July's spread for my Art journal. This is a rather large book that I have altered to make into a journal. I write in it every day what I have achieved art wise. Sometimes I forget, and there are a few blanks.
I usually paint the pages with water colours, but for this exercise it had to be sprays. I have used Dylusion sprays throughout, and then masks. The stamping around the edge are also Dylusions. I just love Dyan's stamps, and they are brilliant for using in journals. Below are the various stages.
The second one I sprayed white linen ink through the masks, which toned down the colour a bit.

Tag Tuesday -- The fantastic and strange

I didn't really have a clue what to do for Tag Tuesday this week. The fantastic and strange wasn't really me, but I then remembered that I had a set of Dylusion stamps with some strange things on.
The background is Distress stains, sprayed with a lot of water allowing the colours to run.
The poorly creature  sitting on the mushroom, not only has blue measles but is terrified of the caterpillar on the ground underneath. He was very lucky that there was a mushroom for him to escape to.
