DH went out in his 4x4 to do the shopping and I worked on this page in my Dylusions Art Journal by Ranger, I love this journal infact I have two and can't wait for the next lot to appear in different sizes. For the background  I used Tim's Distress Paints Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Vintage Photo and Picket Fence, I love these paints they are so easy to apply. I glued various ephemera to the page, lace, torn book page, music, old air line ticket, mesh and film strip ribbon from Tim's Idea-ology range. The photo is from my Sleeping Beauty ballet programme which I distressed a little using a fine sand paper. The drips and splashes are Dylusion inks Black Marble and Nutmeg, butterfly is from a magazine. Actually the whole page was inspired by the front cover of Somerset Apprentice which was done on a canvas but I thought it would look good as a grungy journal page hope you do too. The photo looks a bit dark even though it was taken in the window with glaring white snow and sun shining through. Now I am going to carry on working in my book Art Doodle Love by Dawn DeVries Sokol which is a wonderful book for art journalling I love it.

I have been meaning to post this journal page for quite sometime but kept forgetting as normal life takes over as usual. I did this at my favourite place, Art From The Heart, at the beginning of March and because of St David's Day Dyan said we had to use yellow in the background. I really enjoyed doing this page, everything you see is Dylusions, background inks, stencils and stamps plus of course the journal itself which if you are an art journaler you must get one of these if you haven't already got one.

.....I didn't manage to post my art calendar page on time even though it was ready at the beginning of the week, too many other things going on. This is my Art Calendar March page for Kate's 365 Calendar challenge, have a look at Kate's blog to see all the other calendar pages. I chose the background colour as it is my Birthday this month, I think my colour is Amethyst but the background looks more like lilac rather than amethyst. The journal squares were cut from a piece I did on the Gelli Plate, my images are all from Stampotique. I have used some Washi tape too, it's one of my fave things at the moment.
