2014 Journal52 - Week 34 - Alphabetical

The prompt for week 34 for Journal52 was Alphabetical. I started out adhering a river of thick letters to my page and covered the whole page with gesso. It didn't look like a river to me so I decided to make the Alphabet Fairy! I drew the head and neck on another piece of paper and drew the face and coloured it and cut it out. Then I added some doll hair to the head. I drew in the dress around all the letters and then drew the wings and arms and hands. I painted the dress and letters green and felt that the letters didn't show up enough so I painted the letters with gold metallic paint. Then I adhered the head onto the top of the dress. I painted the background yellow and added some swirls in red. I drew in a wand and a box of letters for the Alphabet Fairy to hold in her hands.
She sure is whimsical! *L*

2014 Journal52 - Week 33 - Gratitude

Week 33 for Journal52 was about Gratitude. I am very thankful for many things in my life.
I first covered the page with some hearts that I cut out from post-it notes to use as masks. Then I used Dylusions spray inks to cover the page. I removed the heart masks and added some muted coloured stamping in the background. I wanted my page to depict joy so I drew some stick figures jumping for joy in the hearts. They make me laugh! I stamped pictures in the other two hearts.  I made a large heart from a paper I had made with more spray inks. I wrote on the big heart and cut it out and popped it up on the page with pop dots. I drew around the other hearts with watercolour crayons and painted them.
The sentiment is something that I try to do every day.  :)

2014 Journal52 - Week 32 - Favourite Foods

The prompt for week 32 for Journal52 was Favourite Foods. I love the Fall when it is harvest time and all the fresh vegetables are so delicious.
I had fun with the background on this page. I painted it to look like a corn field and then did some stenciling, stamping. doodling, and shading with ink. I wrote the title on a separate piece of paper and then coloured it and adhered it to the page. I stamped the girl and coloured her with pan pastels. The corn and beans were pictures from grocery ads. I then added some washi tape.
It makes me hungry just looking at this page! LOL

2014 Journal52 - Week 31 - Friendship

This week's prompt in Journal52 was Friendship. I did the background on this two page spread on the gelli plate and I made the circles with a round sponge. I drew the girls and the banners on an old calendar and coloured them with markers. I cut them out and adhered them to the page. I drew in the hearts and did some stamping in the background.
I am thankful for my friends. :D Tell your friends how much they mean to you.
