woyww - journal page version 2

Not a lot has changed since last week ... still working on the art journal.  The big blank space on the right is sitting waiting for inspiration to strike.  Thanks to all the tips on journalling last week I can now just focus on doing the page and not over thinking about writing.  Eventually I will come up with something that I can put in that space.

Finally another ATC and obviously the theme of this week is "splats and sprays"and not a butterfly in sight.
alcohol inks on acetate over a stamped image.

Off to visit Julia's woyww but probably to early to link up.  I will slowly get around to visiting lots of desks over the week and getting inspired by other peoples desks.

  3. I love this effect. It reminded me of blowing inks around the page with a drinking straw back in art class days.

  20. Wow, inks on acetate certainly make the colours ping out. That purple is brilliant. I have never tried inks, and at the moment that will have to wait until I have a bit of free craft money. Thanks for your visit and your helpful suggestions. In the end, after another failure, I left a message on Barbara Gray's Facebook and she very quickly told me what the problem was, she was using Perfect Pearls, instead of the cheap mica powders I was using. Can't wait to get some and have a go with the right ingredients. Have a good week. xx Maggie #8

  25. Art is a pigment of our imagination. Love it! That's a fun, brightly colored ATC. Those Stampotique stamps are such wonky fun. I love your serene journal page. I definitely think you shouldn't sweat the words. They will come.

  26. Sandra, that journal is the biggest one I have seen. I had a big laugh out loud moment when I read about the ATC. Too, too cute. Sorry I'm late. I'm having a terrible time keeping my computer going this week. It keeps freezing up and I have to reboot. Happy belated WOYWW from #2.

  28. Ohmy, that ATC is just the biz!! I don't do journals myself, but I do love looking (the wonder of WOYWW!!) and I understand your journal long worries, I often wonder how it doesn't just end up being a contrived story telling exercise. I guess I just don't have it in me! Having said all of that, the pages I can see aree lovely. Written on or not, you must be enjoying the process?
