Where I would like to live.

At the beginning of the year Roc over on http://www.whatsuproc.blogspot.com/ set up a monthly journal challenge, I managed to do the first on in January and not done one since until today. April's challenge is to do a journal page about where you would like to live if you didn't live where you live now and write a postcard to someone from that place. Well I have always wanted to live near the sea, I can only put that down to being born under the star sign Pisces. So here is my page completed. I have used all Dylusions paints and sprays I sprayed through some net and a pebble stencil as these are related to the sea. The fishes, bubbles, banner border and the fossil border are all from Paper & Gluestix. The small curly border is a Stampotique stamp and my large image is from the Octopode Factory.
My friend Anne spent ages last Friday showing me how to Link, I have all the instructions written down and fixed to my PC but I still have not mastered copying the URL, IT IS SO FRUSTRATING.

Here comes April

A few days late but better late than never. I am really happy with the background colours on this page although now I have put the journal squares on it covers most of it. I used Dylusions paint Mustard and Pink, sprayed with Sky Blue Pearl mica spray from Art From The Heart. I also sprayed in white which is a Crafty Notions spray. I painted with a gold dabber through a couple of stencils, did lots of circles in orange and white. My images are from Octopode Factory coloured with Copic Markers. The rain drops are from a Claudine Helmuth stamp. The days of the week I wrote on old music sheet and April is stamped on an old book page. I had better get on with May now seeing as time is flying by.

I can't believe how fast this year is going, I know they say as you get older time flies but this is ridiculous April already. So here is March completed for the Art Calendar Challenge that Kate of the Kathryn Wheel set us all. Now I must go and complete the prep of my April page, last month I was well in advance this month I am way behind.
