A few more little experiments
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

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.

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.
