Transfer using wrapping paper.

I did not think this would work but it is my favourite so far. Now to work on the pages! I'm only using Matte Medium in a Sainsbury's lined notebook. It really is cheap and thin substrate.

Have a good Thursday all. C xxx

Transfers using matte medium

Having read Art Journaling I have wanted to experiment with transfers using matte medium. Got round to having a go this week. I have learnt much about how it works. The trickiest bit was not wetting the page too much when removing the back of the image.

It rips see first attempt below.

I am planning on repairing as I work!

I got better as I experimented; baby wipes are very useful. It is a truly magical technique to use, and I loved it as the flipped image emerged. Now to finish the pages!

Me Time Messages

Clare, over at Miscanthus, has created a summer on-line class called 'Me Time Messages'. It is a lovely class so do pop over and check it out.

Clare is on week three - as usual I am running behind but never mind. Here is my week one project the message holder.



I have started week two...

The ten minutes a day is going well for me.


We are enjoying some wonderfully warm weather too. Bliss when on holiday. Thanks for stopping by. C xxx

I have been trying to complete a challenge too but nothing is working yet. I made two cards but I did not like either. I will try again later today.

Have a good Sunday.

10 minutes a day!

After the weekend myself and Ribbon Dreams (Debs) decided we really had to find 10 minutes a day to journal or get arty.

So far we have managed it. I Hope it lasts, I am really going to try.

Day 1

Day 2

I wonder what next...
I am going to try and post progress every day. Think I have an easy and quick way to do this now.

Catch Up

Life continues to throw curved balls and time appears to disappear in a vortex of everything except Paint and messy things! However, this weekend I escaped to Bristol with some magnificent hosts and friends. Thank you, all of you, but especially Mr and Mrs K.

We went tarmacing! A technique which is rather terrifying and fume- ridden! Make lovely art and cover in bitumen and white spirit! Then rub off with more white spirit!

Luckily, it worked rather well...



Neither of mine are finished yet but I think they have potential.

We then went to Newbury Artstamps Show and met up with more friends - hooray. Did I buy anything? Well it would have been rude...


Oh dear! But I have promised myself ten minutes a day for arty stuff from now on so I will use it - really!

Thanks for stopping by...I know I am rarely here but I do lurk a bit and love the blogosphere so keep posting and visiting ...thank you. Cherry xxxx
