Kathryn Wheel Challenge Jan/Feb
Well here are my Feb Pages of my art journal. I have to say that last month hopping around all the talented crafters that are joining in the Kathryn Wheel Challenge, I was so inspired by the fabulous mix of bright colours....and so I really wanted to be a bit braver with colour for this month....also you maybe thinking that this seems familiar, and yes I love the front cover of my inkspiration journal which you can see here, I wanted to do it again but on a slightly larger scale.
I have taken a load of leanne Ellis images and have masked them altogether...I then coloured with copics, and then painted over using twinkling H2'Os ( Pink Azalea, Key Lime, Sky Blue, Iridescent Gold & Yellow Rose)....and I used the Yellow Rose For the main background. For the squares I used "Big & Juicy - Happy Birthday" which I have braired onto card...and then chopped it up for the little squares.
This is my entry for
Crafty Card Makers - Just add water (twinkling H2'Os)
CES Challenges - Bright and Bold
Spoon Full Of Sugar - Photo inspiration
And here are my January pages....I did find that I have overcome the fear of my own handwriting, the more I wrote on this the more the page looked right...however I did say as this was my first attempt at art journaling I am sure I would look back on this page and cringe....I already think my feb page is 100 times better than this one.....hopefully I will keep improving as the year progresses!!........I just think it will look a funny mixed bag by the end of the year.
Thanks for looking
