A Visual Journey #30

I am in one of those moods where ideas aren't sparking in my head and I'm bereft of creative connections. It's times like this I need someone to ignite my inner muse and challenge me to try something different, so for me the best place to go for that is Pinterest and take a look around until I see something that inspires me.

Today I was really taken with a video that Marta Lapkowska made for Lindy's Stamp Gang and followed her steps to create a mixed media journal page. I do recommend you take a look whether you need a shot in the arm like me or just to stimulate your curiosity.

I followed Marta's steps to create an artsy background using torn papers, masking tape and I used dylusions ink sprays for the colours. I have to say at this point I was not sure this background was going to work ........

.... but following Marta's steps in my own way I ended up with pages that I am really quite pleased with.

Adding the stamps, the definition lines, the words and the circles really added to the artsy look.

Even through all the layers you can still see some of the torn text and music papers.

Thank you Marta for the inspiration, it was the perfect thing I needed to do right at this moment and I am pleased with the results I got. 

Thanks for stopping by on my Visual Journey and I can't believe I have managed 30 double pages this year, the journal is getting very fat. Please pop on over to Marta's blog and see the amazing projects she has displayed.

Take care.
