The final MMD Page a day 31.01.2022

We made it! A page a day for the whole of January 2022! Here is my final entry which is quite foreboding! I love the juxtaposition between the jolly colour scheme and the chilling words and images. I went off the page with this one, adding a flap made up of different paper scraps and… Continue reading The final MMD Page a day 31.01.2022

MMD Page a day 30.01.2022

In today's entry I went for an owl theme! I had these images of headless uniformed people so I decided to add this owl head to make a fun Owl general. I used the spotty background just to add more fun and frivolity to the image, and I couldn't resist the crazy eyed owl sticker… Continue reading MMD Page a day 30.01.2022

MMD Page a day 28.01.2022

In today's entry I went for an anthropomorphic bird theme! I used found images of birds dressed up as humans for the background and added a vellum pocket in which I stuck this delightfully creepy bird man. He looks a bit like he is wearing a plague mask. I then added and distressed the hand… Continue reading MMD Page a day 28.01.2022

MMD Page a day 27.01.2022

5 days left of the MMD Page a day challenge! In today's entry I went for a chicken (well cockerel) and egg theme. It's a very simple page but I like the frivolous egg stickers I used. They are backed onto cardboard to make them stand out from the page.

MMD Page a day 26.01.2022

In today's journal entry I created the background using acrylic paint pens. I masked over the image using acrylic gesso and then used some fun stickers of these acrobatic vintage style men reaching over the heart shaped void to each other. I then just added some marks using pens.

MMD Page a day 25.01.2022

In today's journal entry I went for some of my favourite colour acrylic paints, fluorescent pink and Nickel Azo Gold (both by the company Golden) again but took a different approach to yesterday's page by muting the colours with white gesso. I did not really have a theme. I made this image by layering different… Continue reading MMD Page a day 25.01.2022
