Thursday journal with Neet

Neet's choice this week with the words : I'm extremely under chardonnayed" One of Dyan's made up words as my spell checker does not like it.  I have used the other half of the  double page from last week, in colours I rarely use. I have stencilled over it. I think the animals are somewhat underchardonnayed as well, she certainly looks a bit spaced out.
I am off this week so this is a scheduled post.

Art Journal Journey - Geometric shapes

On Art Journal Journey the new theme set by Alison (Craftytrog) is Geometric Shapes.
I had been spraying inks on some journal pages and was having a clean up. I saw the ink sprayed page and decided to file it in the bin. Or I could cut it up into geometric shapes and have a go at Alisons theme on AJJ. I quickly brayered the page with some turquoise paint used a circle stencil on top with orange ink, and glued the cut outs to the background. I then stamped various circles from my small bits stamp collection ( very useful for travelling)

Thursday Journal with Neet

This week I think it washy choice with the words " You would think that with all your multiple personalities, at least one would be likeable"
Once again I had trouble doing the background and ended up with a real mess. I must get some done in advance. The figures are Dylusions and painted with watercolour pens.
I was so hoping to get ahead of myself this year and once again I have taken on too much. I'm going to have a go at at least one of my art course paintings this week ( Says me hopefully). Housework , shopping and cooking do get in the way.

Tag Tuesday -- New beginnings

The first theme of the year on Tag Tuesday is New beginnings, chosen by Valerie.
We can use something new, a new technique or a new tag.
I have chosen to use a new Tim Holtz die cut that arrived too late for Christmas card making. I really wanted to use it so this was an opportunity to do so. I used a piece of corrugated card and covered it in Gesso and blue watercolour paint, and added the moose and the trees.

Thursday Journal with Neet.

This week the words are " I don't like you. You're very ugly and have no manners at all" I feel that is a bit harsh on the poor odd flamingo, who has somehow been given a short birds legs, but when you are a pretty blue bird you never know what their previous conversation was about.
