Howdy Bloggers , Lisa here with a Friday Mixed Media update ..
whoops crazy morning so I am a little late at posting.
But today I'm sharing the fun that has been happening on my table over the last few days .
I have a new fav photo journal atm.
Still a passionate scrapper , but wanting to art journal ,
sometimes I am in conflict about which creative avenue to take,
this little Heidi Swapp Photo Journal of fun provides me with both those options
and I absolutely love that.
Retreat Photos have become the focus of this little 21 pg journal , I have so many , and although I would love to do each photo 12x12 justice , its extremely hard to get to them all. I could do the project life thing, but Its not really me .. so this little baby , has allowed me some quick colourful scrappy arty fun. *oh and you get some clear stickers in the journal to add to your work
I have kept things simple and fun,
using Finnabair Impasto Paints ,
Journalling about each photo experience and memory has added to the importance of the journal.
I have used cards from past retreats as extra journalling and colour pops
(thanks Anita for always making stuff bright )
I dug out lots of old embellies to add fun and detail.. cutting people from photos, and layering them over other elements, gives you a little depth to your piece
sorry peg , got some paint on ya face x
Colour can change the mood and feel to any piece ,
so experiment with different combos ,
and enjoy the process
use those old stickers with new ones to give new life to your journalling style
For me the most important thing about creating , is to have fun..
Now lets see if this video works,I have never really had blogger vid success, but I'm an optomist.
