Go Tag Thursday -- Balloons

Balloons are the subject on Go Tag Thursday and I only possess one air balloon stamp. I did find a couple of all papers that had some balloons on, so ripped bits off them to help make the background a bit more balloon like. I then stamped the balloon and an inventor type gentleman and added him as well. A few cogs and a compass finished it off.

\Art Journal Journey -- Poetry in motion.

I am really late entering this challenge on Art Journal Journey which has been set by Jo from Let's art journal. This one from me is from one of my small Dylusion art journals.


Every Inchie Monday -- Seagull

On Every Inchie Monday we are off to the seaside for the next two weeks and the first one is the seagull. More often seen eating fish and chips at seaside resorts than fishing at sea. The sewn one is the second attempt as thee thin legs kept falling off the first one. The stampbord one is shrink plastic.
We are off to the Isle of Skye on Friday for a week, so have made the next ones in advance. I will schedule them and hope I can get them onto the Inchie site.

Thursday Journal with Neet

Today we are back in the UK, and have landed in London. Their outfits are a bit over the top, but it did use up a wooden moustache I had had for a while. The two pages are one ones previously cut with a wavy edge and coloured on a course with Dyan. These are proving to be a bit of a nuisance to use up. The two pages are bit disconnected, but I ran out of inspiration on this one.

Every Inchie Monday -- Frog

In a bit of a hurry this week as I am still catching up on not doing anything last week, while my friend was here.
Frog is the subject on Every Inchie Monday and I have drawn a poison dart frog on the stampbord and sewn a green tree frog on tyvek, with a felted background. Not the easiest thing to draw or sew, and I think I could have done better if I had taken more time on it.

Tag Tuesday -- Use your scraps

On Tag Tuesday the theme is Use your scraps. chosen by Valerie. On and around my desk was the following: piece of sequin waste, clay and friendly plastic embellishments, some odd bits of yarn, and a broken air dry clay edging.
I made the tag from a scrap piece of cardboard and use some texture paste through some stencils. I painted it with acrylic paint.


I am also entering this on Go Tag Thursday where the theme is Anything goes.
