Hi everyone! We are back from our few days away and I have a journal page for Rike's 'Animals from A to Z' theme at Art Journal Journey!
We get quite a lot of snails on the paths around here and I always stop to look at them - they are such wonderful looking creatures!
Slim here loves snails too - Slimy is his pet! That isn't so strange, my GD had some African snails in a tank sometime ago. I think they were taken to her Mum's house to look after eventually!
My page started with a little bit of an experiment...
..while clearing out some old boxes I found a thin sheet of foam like material. I spread some paint on and made a print on my journal page.
I also got a few more prints onto book pages, although I had to press more firmly as the paint began to run out.
I used a strip at the bottom and added some pink to my page.
I stamped some black drips and runs stamps - I am not good at keeping my stamps with their packaging and once again have no idea who to credit! I also added a few spatters.
Slim (Paper Artsy ElenaZinskiart and Slimy(Caravelle Studio) were both stamped onto my page and also stamped onto card and coloured with Inktense blocks and a water brush. I fussy cut them to be stuck in place to keep the details.I gave Slimy some gold dots with a sparkly pen. I added a Tim Holtz chit chat sticker to show how these two love each other!
I would also like to enter at:-
Simon Says Stamp Monday - Grunge It Up
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Make your own background
We are prepared for cold weather over the next few days although we have to venture out tomorrow to take the car for a service and an eye test for hubby!
I am also going to get the results of my blood test this week so finger crossed!!
Thanks for looking, Chrisx
