The Color Room challenge - sketch and colour palette
Although I said I was giving up on attempting art journalling I am still trying to be a little random and messy with my spray inks. So seeing this scrapbook sketch over at The Color Room (and using the colours fushia, raspberry, white and sunflower) I decided to have a another go at creating a 'random'!!! background for the layout. 3 backgrounds went in the bin straight away but this one I hung on to and once I started placing bits and pieces here and there, its kinda growing on me :O)
I've used a couple of photos of Heidi Mae finding a snail in the garden - and believe me Urrgh is the right word for them! Slimy horrible things!!! Anyway here is the layout
Hello, I'm Polly.
I love altered art, cardmaking, ATC's, in fact anything that needs gluing, stamping, inking or cutting is just my idea of heaven!!!!
I am pleased to say that my husband of 7 years is extremely tolerant of my crafts, especially as I tend to spread from one room to another,well aren't all we all a little messy when we're being creative!!
I like to incorporate all kinds of embellishments in my work especially lace, ribbon, butterflies, angels, hearts etc in fact anything pretty and girly. I soooo love pretty and quirky pieces of art. I was lucky enough to see Tim Holtz in the flesh recently - seeing him was just fantastic. It was only a one hour demonstration but its amazing how much inspiration you come away with.
I hope you enjoy my blog
