I really enjoyed making the assemblages with photographs from my family history collection, (if you missed this post you can find it HERE ) so I thought I'd have a break from editing digital images for the Lancashire stories project (find out more HERE) and have another play and experiment with collage, textiles, ink, paint… Continue reading A few more little experiments

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
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.
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.
