There was a young girl 'ahem' who's daddy bought her two DVD's for her birthday. These Art Journalling DVD's were by Kate Crane who was a great inspiration to the young 'ahem' girl. So after watching the DVD's one day whilst doing her ironing - the young girl (OK rather middle aged girl) decided to have a play.
On the same day, another person who gave alot of inspiration to the middle aged girl - Lily of The Ocotpode Factory - issued The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge 'Once Upon a Time' So even though middle aged girl hadn't yet completed the previous weeks challenge she decided to have a go, using Kate's Techniques and Lily's Images.
The Middle Aged Girl had a lovely time getting inky and painty and threw all her inhibitions away about using her handwriting on a page. She even made a colour wheel before she started!
She used Gesso and stamped into it using a piece of her sons lego (don't mention that bit please), she used paints and inks and a lovely new 'splodges' mask given to her for her birthday by her dear friend Kathy aka Ducklady and when it all looked like it was going to be a total failure remembered Kate's words
'There are no mistakes in art - keep going and it will be OK'
So middle aged girl did keep going and she thinks it does look OK
So the Moral of the Story is
Put away the Ironing and get in your Craft room and get messy - its the way to a happy life!
Now a question for you.... Who is the Journalled page about???
