Good morning everyone.
The dark clouds are starting to roll across the sky today and
rain is definitely on it’s way.
My garden will love it!

Elisa Ablett is sharing an art journal page today that
she has made using lots of Dina Wakley stamps and some stencils.

Elisa has chosen to use Distress Oxides and paints to create
the colourful background for this piece.
She has added the face by stamping onto tissue paper and adding
water colouring to it.
Elisa shares a wonderful tip …
“Stenciling around your stamped images can assist with
blending the stuck down image with your background”
You can see more details and information about how this page
has come together over on Elisa’s blog here.

Have you added to your art journal lately?
When you are struggling with ideas it is a great idea to
just ink up a few pages ready for the future.
Or even add some gesso to blank pages so that they are
dry and ready to use later on.

The wind is picking up here so I better go and make sure everything is
secure outside.
Then it’s time to play with some Lavinia fairies.
I think I’ll work on some samples today for an upcoming
craft show here in Bendigo next month.

Wishing you all a crafty day!
