Journaling Recipe 1

Happy Friday everyone, the weekend starts here - yay. I really looking forward to tomorrow when I am teaching two of my 'Recipes for Success', so of course I can't share them with you but I thought I would share some photos of what the group will see and from the process steps I created, I can't wait to see how they achieve their own versions. These two pages use mostly products from the DecoArt media range which are sold at Pickwell Farm.


If you look into the depths of the layers you can see some music paper, text paper and washi tapes.....


.... and more into the middle layers some stamping and stencilling ......


..... and then on the surface you can see I used paints, pens and gesso.


I know for me I often get 'caught' in the twilight zone, not sure what to do or how to start something and recipes can often help kick start me and invite Mr Mojo to return. Often I will only do the first two or three steps and once I have sparked the creative light inside me I don't need them any more I just take myself off into lots of different directions and follow my muse.


I have a second of my own recipe 1 versions to share with you soon and it is completely different, so ........

..... until the next time happy creating.

Just lovely - the light and colour in the bubbles is so uplifting - I love these pages! Interesting what you say about the recipes - a trigger is a great thing to set you off, I agree, and then off you go in whatever direction it takes you.
