March 366 Journal

Kate Crane's 366 Journal challenge is such a brilliant idea, and a great way to journal a bit each day. A week of March has almost gone, so time to put the finishing touches to my pages for this month.   I must admit I'm writing in my pages  at the end of the month, but for March there are some days coming up which are hidden under a small tab.


I used  one of my favourite colour combinations of turquose and green this month. Actually this page hasn't quite worked out as planned, but with a bit of collage first aid I think I've rescued it. The gessoed pages have been sprayed with Dylusions ink sprays  and then I've stamped onto the background using Archival ink. The collage elements are images and some lovely handmade paper from Artchix.

The small tag covering 17th and 20th of March is made using a resist method. I stamped the Wendy Vecchi tree onto an ATC using white acrylic paint, and used Distress Inks to colour the background.



There are some little blobs of lime green acrylic ink and mist from the spray inks that have landed by accident on the tree flap, but I think I'm OK with that.

 I have again had feline help, so am posting a couple of pictures of Professor Schroedinger aka Ding Ding and Princess Matilda Tanglepaws aka Tilly. I'd feel a right numpty calling out their posh names!
