A Fishy tail

Hello! I haven't been about in blogland lately as life is just so hectic at the moment! Commitments are keeping me from my art work, I just cant seem to find 5 minutes!

I managed to do this journal page on the Saturday after Good Friday but have not had time to post it.

This is a new A4 journal I bought a few weeks ago as it was half price.

I could not get a good photo of this page as I used lots of silver glimmer spray which just keeps reflecting back at me! I also used Dylusions paints and sprays, twinkling H2o's crumpled up tissue paper and text paper for texture, embroidary thread, glitter, TH tissue tape and some net material. I cut the little fish out of a magazine page which was a photo of the sea.

I promise it looks better than this in real life! You cant see all the texture in this photo or the depth of colour as the flash has washed it out, but when I tried to take it without a flash it was all blurry!

I hope to catch some time over the weekend to be creative as we have our monthly crop on saturday.
