My little crafting world....


Hi all
I'm a complete craft addict, so much so that I have left the rat race for the inky race and now have a small business called Surrey Crafts teaching craft workshops in Surrey. If you'd like to find out more just leave a comment, or take a look at my Surrey.Crafts page on FB.

Art Journal cover - My Latest Artistic Inspirations project

Hi all

Here is my latest DT project for Artistic Inspirations challenge 74. I chose the image from Delicious Doodles as it was very different and I loved it, but having chosen I then found it really difficult to know what to do with it!!! Then I joined the Journal 52 group, and this seemed the perfect image to make a cover for my new hand made Art Journal and the idea which popped into my head that 'Words Are Immortal' fitted beautifully.




I used recycled cardboard to make the cover and followed a clip o YouTube to find out how to bind the pages inside. I painted the cover with various cheap emulsions purchased on sale at the local DIY store, had fun using cut'n'dry foam, a toothbrush and dripping techniques.

Then I stamped and embossed the roses which are from Visible Image (and the 'immortal' word too) onto pink paper, cut them out and layered them up. I enlarged and printed the beautiful main image from Delicious Doodles, several times. The main stone is coloured with Promarkers & Spectrum Noir pens. The wings were embossed with glitter Wow Powder, Then all layered up and put together.

I'll enter this into the latest Hels Sheridan challenge which is Wings,(http://pinkleart.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/sunday-stamper-week-290-on-wings-of-love.html )been dying to do one for weeks but just been so frantic with 'life'!
Thanks for looking!

    1. That made me laugh Hels. I'd imagine it would have been helpful if I'd said where the wings were as you get so many to look at! Ta anyway for taking the time to figure it out. Suz xx
