I did a page of my journal. I covered the page with different pieces of tissue and stenciled some acrylic paint to create swirls. I made two attempts at the wings because the first ones went very dark for some unknown reason. The second set was a bit better so I adhered them to the page. I stapled some wide staples to the page and decided to stick two pages together to create a pocket that I'll fill later. It was only after I'd stuck the two pages together that I realised that I'd adhered the cloud and wings on upside down so the pocket is also upside down !! arrgh!!!!! Too late to do anything about it. ....
hmmm...... I'll pretend I did it on purpose just to add a quirky feel to the finished journal. If I do some later pages upside down too this one won't look so odd! Creativity has many guises!!!! lmao
This afternoon,I finally started making Christmas cards. I went to my usual Crafty Friends group and we had a go at making iris fold cards. I cut thin paper into strips, folded them in half and layered them around the aperture fixing them with sticky tape. I edged the tree aperture with a green Promarker and the star with gold 3D glue. I added glitter glue as baubles to the tree and star confetti to the star card. I stamped the greeting on one and adhered an embellishment to the other.
I don't know that I'll make as many Christmas cards as I did last year, but I might make a few for the family. I'll make some with my mother too but she tires very quickly so I guess we'll make a couple a week if she's up to it.
