Hi there - Thursday already!

Hi there,

Hard to believe we're already at December 29th - the last Thursday in 2011 - how's your year been? I've had ups and downs and I'm sure most people have had the same. I hope that 2012 will be better for you if you've had more downs than ups.

Just a quickie journal panel today - been a while since I did any but I ordered a moleskin journal on-line this morning so thought I should get some practise in!

Materials used:
  • 300 gsm white card
  • black card panel
  • Neocolour II water soluble wax pastels to colour the background
  • Baby wipe
  • Tanzanite shimmer spritz and icicle mask
  • Lid from toothpaste pump rubbed on versacolour gold ink pad and applied randomly
  • Plastic "cork" from bottle rubbed across versafine ginger ink pad and applied to centre of gold circles. I REALLY like the effect this achieved as it's not an even application of colour.
  • Credit card dragged through the gold ink pad and used to draw "lines"
  • Paper Artsy images inked in Brilliance crimson, memento london fog and memento tuxedo black
  • Inkadinkado animal skin image inked in versacolour gold
  • Stampers Anonymous star and check background inked in versacolour silver and studiog plum
  • Faber and Castell Pitt pen used to draw freehand border

Hope you like it and I hope you are enjoying your post Christmas break too. May see you all tomorrow with more "stuff" - thanks for stopping by
