Fun fun fun!

So today hubby and boy were at a football tournament and daughter was amusing herself watching pre-olympics programmes on TV, so I had a play in my art journal(s)!

 I went back to Scrapping the Music and had a look through their prompts and was hugely inspired, as always!

I made this page for their Golden Years prompt … the song comes from the movie A Knight’s Tale, one of my all time favourite movies ever in the entire universe, and the clip that this song relates to is the absolute best bit of the entire movie. So funny 🙂 Check out this clip if you haven’t seen the movie!


And here’s my page inspired by the song – it has nothing to do with the movie at all 🙂  Excuse the photo! I left it too late and now it’s dark 🙁

Here’s a closer look at the little cutie!

Another of the prompts over there was Just Breathe by Pearl Jam. Now if you know me, you will know that I have a slight obsession with Eddie Vedder, so I just had to do this page right away! Again, the actual page has nothing to do with the delicious Eddie …

AND I made a video of the process! You can see it here:


Mega catch up!

I’ve been working hard to catch up on my Art Journal Caravan … I’d kind of stuck way back at week 6 or 7 … but I’m now up to date to week 19! Hurrah! I won’t bore you all by posting all the pages at once, but here’s the first few:

Week 7, with a face!

Week 8, with some inked up paper towel:

Week 9, with a napkin:

Week 10, a quick magazine image collage:

Week 11, a little bit of journalling added to the face I showed you in the last post:

As a thank you to my lovely blog readers who have encouraged me so much lately, I’ve decided to give this painting away to one of you!  If you would like to be in with a chance of receiving this, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post.  I’ll keep this open until 16.00hrs UK time on Wednesday 16 November, and will announce the winner here on that day!

I used mostly acrylic paints on this, with a bit of spray paint and some charcoal pencil.  It’s on a block canvas, approximately 9×12 inches.  The block is approximately 0.5 inch deep.
