August Tag

Here is my tag for August using some of the techniques that Tim used on his blog this month.

Thanks for looking.

Journal your Art CJ

This is my final page for the Circle Journal I have been doing over the past 9 months on UK Scrappers.
It is Juliwan's page and her theme was 'Love.' I have used two of my favourite Stampotique stamps and different paint techniques to produce the page. The writing is a quote by William Shakespeare and reads "Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind."

I am now looking forward to my circle journal returning home to me.
Thanks for looking.

Journal your Art CJ

Luckily I had done this Journal Your Art CJ entry before the Olympics started! Today was posting day so I am popping the page on my blog.
This page has been done for Lynne (UKS MrsMcF). Lynne asked us to do a self portrait in any way we wanted to, therefore, I have used a Suzi Blu & Unity stamp, the quote around the image captures me but maybe the body and face is stretching the truth a bit! LOL
I sketched a background masking off a border to act as a frame on the page.
I then used my Pitt pen to draw in the lines and Inktense blocks to colour the background.
The stamped image was coloured using water colour paints and gel pens.
I used leaf metal flakes around the frame and on the tiny heart in the left hand corner of the stamped image. Once I had placed the image in the centre of the page I wrote a little about myself in some of the blank areas.
I then carefully removed the masking tape and drew around the inner edge of the frame with a Pitt pen.
This is the penultimate page for this CJ, I hope Lynne likes it.
Thanks for looking.
