GPP Cat got your tongue
Over at the crusades this month, Michelle has challenged us to get innovative with words on our journalling. Not just the written word but stamps, stencils...anything goes.
I have been doing a lot of art journalling over recent months but am still trying to find my own style...its tricky! And getting words on to the page is even trickier. It doesn't help that I hate, I mean really hate my hand writing...so this has been a challenge indeed!
Here, I used a few elements and techniques collected from previous crusades namely wax rubbings and masks. Even that spade shape was used as a hand made mask at some time.
here some stencilling and a little doodling which I am experimenting with at the moment
and some collage, paint and gesso!
and finally a page in progress
I have realised that I love to use the cut titles and words from magazines.
