Thursday Journal with Neet

This week the words are 'I hear you, I'm just not listening'. I have used one of my Dylusion sprayed pages with some stencil work on top. I also sprayed some gold shimmer ink on as well. The figures are Dylusions and painted with watercolour pens.
The figure on the right looks as if she is walking away and is definitely not listening.
I am getting really fed up with all this rain, I can't do the jobs in the garden and as my textile course has been cancelled for the time being, my enthusiasm has gone as well.
I'm going to give it a break for a while and try and get back to my two on-line art courses, which I have abandoned since April. I can't catch up now, but I can do a bit.

Tag Tuesday - Anything goes

On Tag Tuesday the theme set by Valerie is Anything goes. This has given me the chance to use up some spare bits. I have boxes of things to use up and really must sort my studio out. Times change and I do more textiles than anything else now.
This is another of my deli paper backgrounds and this time I cut up added some extra pieces to the tag. I then added some more friendly plastic pieces. Just in time for this one.

Tag Tuesday - Anything goes

For Valeries theme on Tag Tuesday which is anything goes, I have used up some hoarded scraps. I started off by covering some card with coloured deli paper and making tags with them. I then added some glitter medium through a heart stencil and added some friendly plastic charms that I had made years ago. I really must use up more of these as it is no longer available and will get brittle.

Thursday Journal with Neet

'I'm an acquired taste, if you don't like me, acquire some taste" I had a page already  for this  with a background of spayed Dylusion inks. I used a few stencils on top using Distress oxide inks. The figures both acquired new beds  and painted with watercolour pens.
My two youngest grandchildren came over on Tuesday and had a sleepover. By the time my son in law came over to fetch them at lunchtime on Wednesday, I could have curled up somewhere warm and fallen asleep.

Another piece of course work.

I have just finished this piece for my textile course. It's my first attempt at a sea theme.
The large fish is a print taken from a rubber fish. The two striped fish were masks made out of wallpaper on a silk screen, and the pattern on them is the reverse side of the wallpaper, taking up the colour from the screen  The background is all made with Indian block prints and then over-dyed with Procion dye.

Tag Tuesday - Anything goes

Valerie is hosting this fortnight on Tag Tuesday and has chosen Anything goes. Lots of scope there, which usually leaves me without knowing where to start. As some pressed leaves fell out of my book that's wa=hat I went for. I used a mop up piece of paper stuck onto a tag, added the leaves, tiny acorns, a small pine cone, and a twig charm.

Thursday Journal with Neet

At my age, one should ration one's excitement" are the words this week. I decided to go with pink this time as the lady looks like  she would have a pink rinse if she felt brave enough. The look on her face and her grey hair seem to suit the quote. Being a butterfly is about as much as she can cope with for excitement. Her dog isn't exactly full of energy and excitement either.
The page is distress inks with stencils and stamping on top, and done in a hurry again.
