Thursday Journal with Neet

This week we have the words 'Smile it is the key that fits the lock of everybody's heart' + the words 'where should we fit it" added by Neet.
I thought the figure of Winston didn't look as if he had smiled for years, so used these two figures to illustrate the saying. I used Dylusion paints on the background and various stencils including two new ones ( the green leaves and the seed heads)
My cold is on the mend now, it just takes me twice as long to do anything.


I am also entering this in Art Journal Journey where  Jo's theme is Something new and
  Try it on Tuesday where the theme is 'What a cutie/make someone smile today

Tag Tuesday -- Winter scenes

On Tag Tuesday it's Michele's turn to host with he theme of Winter scenes.
My tag has a background of distress inks sprayed with water to give the mottled effect. The trees are a die cut by Tim Holtz with white puff paint to look like snow. The foreground is texture paste with some snow like glitter on top. The trees also have glitter on, non of which is visible on the scan.

Thursday Journal with Neet

Very late putting this on as I have been rushing around Hereford with my son, getting all those last minute things before he flies back to Russia tomorrow. I should have put it on last night as I made it ages ago, I just haven't thrown off this cold yet and ache all over from coughing
The words for this week are 'I don't know how to put this nicely, so I won't'
The background is sprayed with Dylusion sprays and some of the new shimmer inks. I used a stencil for the leaves, and coloured the figures with watercolour pens.

Tag Tuesday -- Celebrations

On Tag Tuesday the theme is celebrations chosen by our new team member Pinky.
I have chosen to celebrate a romantic weekend in Paris. The tag has the main feature of the Eiffel tower with the happy couple surrounded by flowers with a bit of lace to finish off at the top.
I am very late joining in as I am still suffering from a really awful cold that the grandchildren kindly gave me. My mojo hasn't really appeared since Christmas.

Thursday Journal with Neet.

'Easy when you know how isn't it' I was a bit stumped with this one and in the end went for these two figures doing some exercises and balancing acts. I had already sprayed the pages with Dylusion inks. My son is home from Russia for a fortnight so I managed to get this done on Monday. As we are off to one of my daughters for New Year I thought I had better get organised.
I have caught the most awful cold from the grandchildren and feel terrible. The two men are eating at my youngest daughters so I don't have to think about cooking for them. I might have a boiled egg if I can be bothered, which I doubt I will. I just feel like sleeping to stop the awful cough which has given me a rotten headache. I have used some of the new Dylusion shimmer inks on this page so will enter this in Jo's theme of Something new on Art Journal Journey

Thursday Journal with Neet

The second Christmas post with the words "I'm trying to get into the Christmas spirit, but I can't get the flaming top off the bottle"
I have used the opposite inked side from last weeks and have used loads of numbers instead of stars. She might see stars, once she can get the top off at least one of the bottles. I must say she does look a bit cheesed off.
I am also entering this for Yvonne's theme on Art Journal Journey where the theme is words and numbers.

Thursday Journal with Neet

The words this week as we are fast approaching Christmas are "I'm the reason Santa has a naughty list" which I have altered to we're, because I couldn't resist putting these two little fellows on. The page is sprayed with Dylusion inks, with some stars in metallic silver. The figures are coloured with watercolour pens.
I am also linking this to Yvonne's theme on Art Journal Journey which is words and numbers


To everyone who sees this have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy and healthy New Year
