Messy art journal CJ

This month for the 'Let's Get Messy art journal CJ' was a page for Gill, Wisher, she has a beautiful little book that she altered called 'Up the Rainbow Stairs' by Sheila E Braine and her topic is,have you guessed??? yes Rainbows :) when you hear the word rainbow what does it make you think of? For me it is the old children's TV program Rainbow which I used to watch when I was a little girl, the theme tune really brings back happy memories for me. I used some water colour crayons for the background, hand drew some houses (a la Kate Crane style) added the rainbow, added a little doodle border and printed out the theme tune and stuck it on. Gill I hope you are of an age to remember the theme tune and you can sing along, hope you like it :)

Make me Laugh CJ

Art journal cj, my page for Sharon's whose theme is TV or Film quotes, as I love the Shrek movies, I think they are very funny and great for all the family to watch. I went with an image of Shrek, my background in Dylusions inks and some inked and gessoed circles, there were so many quotes to pick from but I eventually went with 'you know Donkey, sometimes things are more than they appear'. Hope you like it Sharon :)

Scrap Room Mess

My scrap room is a real mess at the moment, in serious need of a MEGA tidy up, at the moment I have hardly any space to craft on my desk and I can't find anything even when I just set it down!! So my first task this summer holidays is too have a really good tidy up and clear out, I'm hoping by posting these photos it will inspire/embarrass me into tidying up. Do I have too much stuff in my room?? no I don't think so, I probably don't need to buy anything more for the next 10 years but that doesn't stop me from wanting lol :D

Inchie/Twinchie swap

Over on UKS I'm taking part in another inchie/twinchie swap hosted by the swap queen Karen :) I choose to take part in the 'anything goes' part, my only problem was my mojo had up and gone, I tried several different ideas before I finally settled for these.
These are my inchies which I sprayed with Dylusions inks and added a little flower which I had stamped onto some printed paper, coloured in with my pro marker and stuck on.
These are my twinchies which I again sprayed with Dylusions inks and then I just added a stamped image which says 'trying to be good', simples!
