Hi there. I wanted to show today my letter H page in my 2012 A-Z Journal. By this time in the year I was hoping to be at least half way through the alphabet so on letter M or N but I am a little behind.
So H is for Holiday and I used my recent trip to the Lake District with my daughter as inspiration.
The page was originally a yellow/orangey colour but I wanted to change it to green to match the wonderful scenery of the area, so I painted the page with every substance I could find on my craft desk; haha Gesso, ink pads, spray inks, masks and coated all that with some Golden Gel Medium (I like the way it gives the page a shine and a flexibility). Some doodling following Lindsay Ostrum's direction from her book "Creative Doodling for Kids" (yes I know it says for kids but it isn't really there are some fab fonts in there) and stamped and cut out trees - I think the stamp is a Bo Bunny one, as are the Explore and the chevrons. The Journey awakens the soul is a Tim Holtz one I think.
These are the next two pages of "stuff" that I accumulated over the few days we were there along with some photos which I made into three photo strips. Lots of stamping and distressing on these pockets and the letter H is complete in my A-Z Journal.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and having a look at my work. Have a great day.
