Art Journalling

I am still branching out slowly and getting into art journalling - here is my third attempt:

OK to me this doesn't look much different to the tags I make apart from the fact that it's bigger and has no ribbons on the top! 

Anyway for the background I used Melted Chocolate, Postbox Red and Pure Sunshine dylusion sprays, then Broken China distress ink through some sequin waste which I then added a white pen to.  I then used texture paste and puff paint through a Wendy Vecchi Brick Wall stencil and a Glitzcraft Santa_Sleigh stencil, heated it so it puffed up and then painted the house roofs with Angelic Teal Lustre Blonde Moments pearl pigment.  When dry I then painted the wall and snow with white acrylic paint to brighten it up a bit.

The reindeer is a T!m die and is coloured with Tarnished Brass metallic stain, edges inked with Vintage Photo distress ink and then a red seed bead for his nose.

The Snowman is also one of T!ms, cut from card covered with music paper, with the numbers 25 from the Reindeer die cut out from his tummy.  His hat is coloured with Black Soot distress stain, all his edges done with Vintage Photo ink and his nose with a Spiced Marmalade marker.  His scarf is some fibre called Let's Grow from Hobbycraft and his eye some black bling.  I finished with some black pen lines to ground the snowman and reindeer and an Inkylicious Santa's Sleigh stamp in Jet Black archival.

I have moved away slightly from a tag as the edges aren't inked or distressed but as you can see I haven't added any journalling! Oh well, small steps......

A big hello to my newest follower Joe whom I have actually met in real life as he used to work in a scrapbooking shop in California!

Thanks for looking - Cant believe it's December tomorrow from Solihull

I don't think there are any rules with journals and they seem like a great place to play. This is lovely; the depth of the red background makes everything else ping off the page. Hope you have a fab weekend. Hugs, Buttons x

Lovely journal page there Pet. Not sure there are any rules as Journals are your own domain. Enjoy. Wrap up warm

Journals are just places to play and you've done just that :) Cool snowman with the music paper.
