It's so not me! Didn't come out at all how I visualised it in my head and I am so not keen on my writing with that white pen around it (how come everyone else's looks fantastic??). Anyway I am not moaning - it's a first attempt and, I think, unfinished. Just not sure where else to go with it but I am showcasing it today and will relook at it again tomorrow. Think it would have been better in colours I am comfortable with - today's prompt was to use a colour you don't like or don't use regularly. Mine is pink! I like pink but just don't use it very often (or that lime green either!).
Stuff I have used is: Vintage Photo (couldn't not use this as that would be way tooooooo far out of my comfort zone!), Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick distress inks, Old Lace and Cranberry Zing Glimmer Mists, Fresh Lime dylusions spray, a Nestability heart, corrugated card, Mini Time Travel Mask by Crafters Workshop, and two Cog masks from Creative Expressions, T!ms Life's Possibilities stamps, Coffee Archival Ink, T!ms cog (the bird's nest) which is feathered with tissue tape and also one of his tickets and stamps, T!ms Bird from the birdcage die and also some of his sizzlet Flowers coloured with various distress stains, Brown Bazzill cardstock, Picket Fence and Vintage Photo Distress markers and brown twine. I have to confess it does look a lot better since I added the birds and flowers and removed the gravestones and buttons (don't ask where I was going with those!).
If you can think of anything I can add to this to pep it up a bit I would grateful for any feedback!
I would also like to say a big hello to my new followers: Kathy, Charlotte, Eva, Denise, Kendra and Carla - I hope I haven't frightened you all off with this piece but don't worry I am off now to do some sewing - sew much more in my comfort zone!
Thanks for looking - not sure I am an art journaller yet from Solihull.
