I am almost at the end of my July Junk Journal so this is the last timelapse that I will share - next week it will be a proper photo!


This starts with yesterday's page and then moves on to today when the three prompts were rainbow, frames and snapshot.

Creative Warriors Inspiration Team - Post #18

             

This is my next inspiration for the Creative Warriors Inspiration Team 2022 - Term 1

with Michelle Grant Designs

You will see our inspirational creations on the Facebook Group


Today I am sharing a journal page which is a mash - up of 

Lorri's Painted Faces



Firstly I made paper dolls using Lorri's Painted Faces (I coloured these with markers). The bodies are cut from a page from Brave.
I used another page from Brave and decoupaged this around the paper dolls.


At the same time I made a page in my July Junk Journal using one of Lorri's Painted Faces.


Happy Crafting!

Wednesday again, so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #685

I am afraid I didn't make #684. My daughter and I went on a week's trip. We bought flights that would do multi-cities so we visited Adelaide and Sydney from Melbourne and back! It was a week of sightseeing and culture -the ballet in Adelaide, La Traviata in the Opera House in Sydney and Moulin Rouge at one of the theatres. Plus lots of art galleries, museums, walks seeing wildlife. I only did some of my temperature blanket in the way of craft (and that has become very blue!!)

But to get to today, my workdesk is again a timelapse of that little junk journal. 




The three prompts were fluros, unique and magazines. My pictures were cut from Daphne's Diary magazine.

This is how far my little junk journal has got so far:



I will share more ICADs next week - although I have caught up on the JJJ, I still have a few to catch up on on them...

To finish a few photos from our holiday:

Australian sealions on Kangaroo Island


Yayoi Kasuma exhibit in The Art Gallery of South Australia in Adelaide.


Jellyfish from Illuminate Adelaide


Walking through a Songline - Aboriginal exhibit in A Sydney Museum.


Finally - getting there with the house Kevin comes back from Egypt on August 26th - we are planning to move at the beginning of September, all being well!







Anyway, all for now - see you next week... hopefully I  will manage to visit you all this week...

Happy WOYWW!

Addicted to Stamps and More - Any Occasion #434



The above is my Any Occasion project...for Challenge #434 at Addicted to Stamps and More


I have used black glossy card blanks matted with pieces of a gelli pull.
I then embossed images from the Visible Image Stamp set Creative Chaos in black.


The Gelli pull used teal and gold acrylic paint and yarn to form the lines.
