Kathryn Wheel Challenge Jan/Feb


Hello All,

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
Hugs Juls

  20. January looks amazing now it's all completed. You're right about it being a jumble at the end of the year but I found with mine last year, once it was bound together it became a little reflection of my art journey throughout the year.
    Febuary is STUNNING!!!

  25. Have just seen Anesha's pages and had to admit that up to now I 'didn't get it'. Now I see how they are being used I think it's so clever. Love your brightly coloured pages. Should cheer you up even if you have a not so happy entry to make. (Of course I hope that doesn't happen.)
