Art Journal

After taking Finnebars class some weeks ago,  I made an art journal to take with me on weekends away ..

 most of the pages thus far have contained photographs of previous weekends away against handmade backgrounds..

The inside cover page is scrapbook paper, some sprays, Kaisercraft stamp and washi tape

first spread  is sprays again, papers, and photo's from our second girls weekend ... Queenscliffe.  (lesson learnt that weekend, never sit close to a radiant heater.. I came home with quite a good sized burn on my hip)

havent yet had inspiration hit with what to do to finish this spread.. lots of sprays, collections tissue and torn edge taking away half the right hand side leads to....

Our Lakes Entrance/Metung weekend.  We took one of the cruises across to Metung for lunch and these guys flew beside us for a ways..... handcarved house stamp by Ro Bruhn...

Day trip to Bendigo a while back led to this page.. texture on the right is Gel Medium trowelled on through a cheap lace tablecloth.  Old newspaper, washi tape, bubble wrap stencil and old buttons.. needs some words yet.  Pic was Old Bendigo Post Office...

Cape Schank lighthouse on left side, taken during our Rosebud weekend.  Pics are stitched onto embossed paper and glued to painted pages.  Deli paper along the bottom with hand drawn/coloured hearts and Ro's carved house stamp again.  Right hand side is under the pier at Point Lonsdale (during our Queenscliffe weekend) during an incoming tide.

Ararat and the Grampians... missed a lot of the scenery due to lack of good maps and planning.. so we decided to come back a second time.  This is from the first visit.  Butterfly stamp by Kaisercraft and words stamp by Tim Holtz.

Broke the mould with this one and decided to just do an arty page in there as a tryout for a swap I was going to go in... painted pages, sprays, Tim Holtz barbed wire and cobwebs stamps.  Images by Hidden Vintage at Deviant Scrap.
