Thirty days of artmarks….

I would like to welcome my newest followers AussieAnnie, Karen (Lunagirl), Elke(I can't find link for Elke), Cheetarah and Stephanie and probably a few more who I haven't mentioned - I realised that my followers list has grown considerably  - if I have missed you off it certainly doesn't mean that I don't appreciate your support! 
Once again I am a little behind with commenting too, please forgive me!!

I have been finding some time to play - I am joining in with Rae Missigman's 30day artmarks challenge.I missed joining in the last one so was already with my little journal this time - here are the first 3 pages…I have used a 4 x 4inch journal
 Day 1 and the prompt was 'clustered'- I used the flowers from a Woodware stamp to make eggs.
 Day 2 - the prompt was 'repeating'- Elenazinskiart leaves on a background made with Oxide inks, deli paper sprinkled with Infusions and lots of repeated paint and pen marks
Day 3 - the prompt was 'layered' -this was going fine, with lots of layering of stencils and stamps - until I stamped the flowers - made a complete hash and had to stamp and cut out more flowers - fortunately I had some under paper with splashes of oxides on it!
 Day 4 - the prompt was 'stacked' I used watercolours on the paper then used one of my old masterboards with a few more marks added. I cut a section up into strips, jumbled them and stacked them in a heap. 
So much litter seems to be spread around these days - our journey up the motor way would be so much prettier if only folk didn't throw their rubbish out of car windows or ..worse still….fly tip!!! There…rant over!! 

I am using Instagram (chrisxpear)to publish my pages daily but will be keeping up to date here on my blog when I can! 

Thanks for looking, Chris

Beautiful pages Chris, ou seem to be having fun. Litter is always a problem, I get very cross when I see what people throw on the street or just dump. Hugs, Valerie

Love your journal pages!!! How long does the challenge last? I've kind of backed off on challenges lately as I was doing too many and stressing. :)
