Bitten by the bug!

So,after sending my Art Journal CJ on its way last week I really missed it and wanted more! This led to me poking my nose on the UKScrappers Art Journey thread and decided to join in!
I've found a notebook that's been hanging around for ages and started on my intro page. I used Cosmic Shimmer as a background and stamped the border with a bit of doodling thrown in too. 
I'm beginning to feel obsessed! 

I'm going to pop this over at Handmade Monday which I've neglected recently and have missed.

Journal Your journey-Art Journal CJ

I've bitten the bullet and joined an Art Journaling Circle Journal over on UKScrappers. I've wanted to try art journaling for a long time but just don't have the guts to do it!
Now I can't back out as I'll have a journal to complete every month!
My theme is travel-favourite quotes,places,journeys etc. 

Cover Page

Background is glimmer mists,stamps and doodled border

 This is a bit of a mish mash so I might redo it when I get the journal back!

I found the image of the lady on the motorbike and just couldn't resist it! Love it! The quote's a favourite of mine. All the images I've used are from Freubels-Freebies.
I'm looking forward to experimenting and learning along the way-just hope I'm up to it!

Fairy Doors

I saw a swap on UKScrappers for Fairy Doors and was intrigued! I've never heard of them before but it's such a magical idea to have a door in the house for the fairies to come in!
I made one for the swap and another for a friend's daughter. They're made on thick card, painted with acrylic paint then decorated with flowers and Stickles. I cut out the toadstools, coloured with Promarkers and gave them a bit of texture with Enamel and Glossy Accents. I really enjoyed making these and can see myself doing a few more!

This is the one I made for the swap...

and this was for my friend's daughter.
I did put a little fairy with both the doors but she was too shy to be photographed!(I forgot!)

ATC -Fly

This is for the first challenge of 2012 over at ATCs with Attitude. I wanted to try an art journal-y thing as I'm about to start an art journal CJ.(something new for 2012!)
The design team were given two images to chose from and I chose this one because I liked her attitude!
I coloured over the ATC with oil pastels and stamped the borders down the side before adding some Stickles to the wings and glossing up her hair.
Couldn't resist the crown! 

Happy New Year!

I can't believe a year's gone by since I started this blog - and it's still going! I've had a great time keeping it up and running but the best thing's been all the new friends I've made along the way.
It's a wonderful community and I can't wait to see all your creativity in the year to come!

Happy New Year to all my followers!
