Hello! Just wanted to share a couple of art journal pages and my (late) July calender page for the challenge over at Kates blog. I had done it on time but had not had a chance to post it yet.
On this page I have used a download from Ceremony on the left hand side. On the other side I layered up some book print then stamped an image on to a single sheet of tissue paper. I used gel medium to stick it down and also over the top of it to make it see through so you can see the text underneath, mirroring the download. I used acrylic paint, distress inks and more stamps.
This page was acrylic paint, spray inks, TH masks and distress inks and stamps. The dressmaking dummy was again from ceremony. I printed butterfly wings onto blue tissue paper so they came out translucent when stuck down.
Here is my July calander page. Not as happy with it as some of my others as I didn't really have a theme for this month, still I am pleased I have kept up with it even if I always seem to be late posting!
The Wight Craft Circles 5th retreat is coming up soon and we have decided to open up a few places this year.
The dates are Fri 23rd Sept to Sun 25th Sept
Totland Bay youth hostel on the Isle of Wight
Tickets are £45 (non refundable £10 deposit required)
Arrival and check in on the Friday at 3pm, check out 2pm on Sunday.
This is a self catering event, there is use of a big kitchen and lots of take away places nearby. Because it is a youth hostel we ask that you tidy and hoover your room before departure.
Tea/coffee/ juice provided.
There are no classes at this retreat, it is just an opportunity to craft away with friendly like minded people all weekend. We normally all go for a walk on the Sat afternoon to get some group photos (weather permitting!) either to the beach or up the downs.
This will be the 5th retreat we have run and may be our last as the youth hostel is due to close next year.
To find out more please go our blog.
You can see photos of the venue and shots of previous retreats.
You can also leave a comment for me if you are intrested.
