Calendar Page Two

A while back, well last month, I shared my first ever art journalling attempt with you.  So I thought I would share February’s page too.  I have to admit I am not as happy with this one as I was with January.  I had a rough plan of what I wanted to do but really needed to plan it better, in the end I was making it up as I went along!

The pages are painted with red and white acrylic paint, mixed to produce a graduated effect.

Then large hearts stencilled on using pink and red inks. 

The hearts and February were printed and cut out with my Craft Robo. Before sticking the hearts in place I blended some pink ink around the edges.  The roses were stamped and embossed with clear and gold embossing powder before the hearts and letters were stuck on.. The stamp is from Clarity.

February ready to go, I just hope it does not end up being full of entries about the Somerset floods.

Thanks for visiting.  Take care.



About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Well I think your Feb pages are brilliant Pippa. You have a plan???? How do you work one out? I never have a plan when I play in my Art Journal – it just happens!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx
