Rebel Journal Page

I am teaching a whole weekend of workshops to a craft group in Wales at the beginning of April and on the Saturday I will be repeating my vintage tag book but on Sunday they would like a day of journaling, so I am preparing some things to take with me.
P1040343
This is a page made on card and then stuck into my large Dyan Reaveley journal book.
P1040334
I had fun using Dylusions sprays, Dyan’s masks …….
P1040339
….. and stamps ……
P1040340
I also used a large Pronty alphabet mask and picked out the letters to spell REBEL, painted them in with white paint and outlined them with black pen. Just the way I felt at the time I guess and I am a bit of a rebel at heart you know.


… oh and I added a Dina Wakely stamp for the focal image.


Well we've got more rain again today, the garden is saturated and boggy, I am so looking forward to some dry and sunny days. My dear friend Terry in California keeps teasing me by sending 'warm' hugs, which are lovely, but I need the sun to go with them lol.

It's my murder mystery party tomorrow, the one that couldn't go ahead on New Year's Eve because of illness. I am looking forward to hosting this as I have written it myself and have re-themed it for a Valentine party, so fingers crossed the murderer doesn't get recognised too early!!!

Hope you have a good weekend xx

Such a beautiful page... no doubt they will love this in the spring. Hope your party is wonderful!

A most fabulous blend of colours and textures.
They are so fortunate to have you as their teacher.
I love the idea that you created this on card and will insert into your book. For someone who is still timid of art journalling this would be an approach I would find easier than the fear of spoiling a new journal.
Wishes
Lynne
