Anything Goes challenge which is to use Stars in any form. I coloured my ATC background with DI Tumbled Glass then I sprayed through a Crafters Workshop template (mini cosmic swirl) using Dyan's Altered Original spray in Sky Blue. My little guy is a Stampotique Original, coloured with my Copic Markers, his hat is from Dyan's Downloads cut from one of the houses. All the stars are also from Dyan's Downloads, the silver one I coloured with a Ranger Dabber and the 3 bottom ones I covered with Glossy Accents and did the same with his boots to make them nice and shiny. The wording was done on the PC and finally I faux stitched around the edge. So that's it, my star.

Hi everyone, I have just had a great weekend. One of my grand-daughters came to stay on Friday after school and on Saturday we went to that wonderful place AFTH to do some Art Journaling. It goes without saying we had a fantastic time talking, eating, laughing and of course doing some art work using all of Dy's wonderful inks,sprays, stencils, downloads, paints, I could go on forever LOL. Here are a couple of pages that I did for you to see, both are completely different styles.

How lucky am I having been to AFTH two full days this week. The first day was Wednesday which was a "play day", these days are brill as you get to do whatever art work you want with no interruptions. If at home there are constant interruptions, take the dogs out, do some cleaning, shopping,cooking etc while at AFTH you just get to play as long as you like. I spent the day doing a page in a friends circle journal which I can't show you in case she sees it,sorry! Today was Art Journaling day, Dyan gave us a challenge which was to use one of the large Crafters Workshop stencils and some dress pattern tissue. You might not be able to see but there is lots of layering and one of my favourite Stampotique characters stamped on to a piece of tissue under the umbrella and a quote from one of Dyan's downloads.

"Anything Goes" finishes tonight so I have only just made it again. The challenge is "VINTAGE". I have used a 4x4 canvas covered in Gesso, painted with Claudine's Traditional Tan. Using Gel Medium I placed a torn piece of music sheet and went over the whole piece with DIs Shabby Shutters and Scattered Straw. The type charm "Chic" is a 7Gypsies and the images are from a sheet of Graphic 45 "Domestic Godess", cut out and outlined with a black pen. Everything can be bought at Art From The Heart.

As a number of people have remarked we are half way through the year and where has time gone. I know they say as you get older time flies but even much younger people are remarking about how fast this year is going. Here are my pages for June and July in the Art Calendar challenge organised by the lovely and very talented Kate. For July's pages I have used Altered Original sprays from Dyan at Art from the Heart, stencils and a few stamps from Stampotique Originals. Now I need to upload to Flickr following my grand-daughters instructions.
