CBC Day 7 & Scrap with us #17

CBC Day 7
Random word prompt
This has not photographed well because I used some metalic acrylic paint on it. Quite a simple journal page today, I have not thought outside the box as much as my other pages, but I think thats because I did this at our monthly crop today, those little feelings of 'is it good enough' were creeping around my head because there were other people there! Stupid I know, but there you go!
If you cant see what it is, it's dandelion seeds flying on the breeze!
I found a wonderful blog last night through a link photo on CBC, its called One Blackbird (link on my bloglist). I stayed up untill 1.30am and looked at every single blog entry! This is my first attempt at an art journal and I am not sure what I am doing, but her blog inspired me. There are amazing journal pages on it and I even found a starters kit list with essensial supplies for journalling! I will definately be popping back to check out her work on a regular basis!

Today was our crop and week 17 of scrap with us which was
'I'm feeling distressed'
Not a great LO but my head is full of CBC and my art journal at the moment! I love the photo of my sister which I took last week at a reaissance festival we went to. She was so engrossed in watching the Bloodstone border morris dancers she didnt even know I'd taken the photo!

I know thoughtful is spelt wrong, it was intentional!
PP was Kaisercraft Airyfairy which I have had forever, primas, thickers, Cosmo Cricket alphas, lace and buttons. I did scrunch up the paper and tear the edges but it doesnt show that much! I also distressed the edge of the photo.

i feel so honored that you mentioned me in this entry. i am also a beginner so i'm glad we found each other - we can learn together.
i love this page for "fly" - i can actually feel a slight, warm breeze when i look at it.

Oh, how many times did I do this as a child? So many times and then taught my children to do the same! Love your interpretation of "fly", and your art journal! My daughter draws, so I will be sure to introduce her to your blog, too!

It's so beautiful. I'm going to be saying this every day I think - but this one is my new favourite of yours. You are really inspiring me to do my art journal Sam, it was always the journalling side of it that was putting me off but both you and Virginia ( are really helping me get started. I'll check out that other link when I get back from the school run.
