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
Today I am sharing with you a recent body of work I created which consists of several mixed medium assemblages. Assemblage is art that is made by assembling disparate elements – often everyday objects – scavenged by the artist or bought speciallyhttps://www.tate.org.uk/art/art-terms/a/assemblage These pieces were created using various mediums- collage, alcohol inks, acrylic paints, textiles… Continue reading Mixed medium assemblages
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
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
In today's entry I went for an eye theme! Ever since I was a little girl I have loved drawing eyes, they are beautiful and weird and creepy and fascinating all at the same time.

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.
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
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) I chose aquatic plants as a rough theme I used aquatic themed stickers, some info from a book scrap on plants and added a faux stamp, well, just because I… Continue reading MMD Page a day 24.01.2022
