NaNoJouMo Days 8 and 9

Still managing to keep up with this …

Here’s day 8 – “make a list”!

And here’s today’s … “true blue”! A tricky one …

I’ve lost my lovely background! I was messing about and did something to make it not show up properly, so deleted it, but now I can’t get on shabbyblogs.com to get it back 🙁  boo hoo!

ALSO, don’t forget to enter my giveaway in the post above to win a mixed media canvas by moi! 😀 xx

NaNoJouMo day 4 …

A little behind now, but here’s my page inspired by the prompt “Matters of the Heart”

See how I made this page here:

Another page was created today (along with video) but I’m not sure I’ll get the video edited and processed tonight as I have a hot date with Harry Judd on Strictly Come Dancing!

NaNoJouMo Day 3 …

… and I’m still up to date!

The prompt today is ‘Hopes and Fears’.  I read the quote while I was at work and from the moment I saw it I had this song going round in my head …

Everybody’s Changing by Keane … from the album Hopes and Fears.  This song brings back many memories from a time in my life, not too long ago, that was full of hopes and fears, mainly to do with my job at the time (ITU Nurse).  Anyway, here’s my page:

Another quick and simple one!

Wednesday faffing …

Wednesday is my day off work (lucky me to only work 4 days a week!) and so today I have been faffing and fiddling.  Fiddled with my blog (I’m not feeling the header at the moment – more fiddling will commence – fiddling completed!) and faffing with paint and paper.

Here’s a page I did for Tangie Baxter’s Art Journal Caravan (here’s a link to the blog).  This is a ‘prompt a week’ type project and I am waaaaaaay behind!  I struggled with this prompt – it was all about measurement – so in the end I just went with one of the quotes given:

Not the best photo as I’m being lazy and taking all these photos on my iPhone – which is a great camera. Also I’ve just realised I’ve made a mistake in the quote … oh well!

Here’s a video of how I made this page!  I was trying to challenge myself not to have a focal image cut from a magazine on the page … and I did struggle!

Here’s a couple of pics I was going to add to the end of the video … but shame got the better of me!  The aftermath:

And here’s a really quick, simple page I made for the NaNoJouMo prompt today.  I’m up to date so far! I hesitate to even call this an art journal page … I (eventually) printed off my own photo of the sunrise over Christchurch Beach from my recent few days in Bournemouth, stuck it to the page, used some Caran D’Ache water soluble crayons around the edge, added the title and voila!
