Wednesday faffing ...

Wednesday is my day off work (lucky me to only work 4 days a week!) and so today I have been faffing and fiddling.  Fiddled with my blog (I'm not feeling the header at the moment - more fiddling will commence - fiddling completed!) and faffing with paint and paper.

Here's a page I did for Tangie Baxter's Art Journal Caravan (here's a link to the blog).  This is a 'prompt a week' type project and I am waaaaaaay behind!  I struggled with this prompt - it was all about measurement - so in the end I just went with one of the quotes given:

Not the best photo as I'm being lazy and taking all these photos on my iPhone - which is a great camera. Also I've just realised I've made a mistake in the quote ... oh well!

Here's a video of how I made this page!  I was trying to challenge myself not to have a focal image cut from a magazine on the page ... and I did struggle!

Here's a couple of pics I was going to add to the end of the video ... but shame got the better of me!  The aftermath:

And here's a really quick, simple page I made for the NaNoJouMo prompt today.  I'm up to date so far! I hesitate to even call this an art journal page ... I (eventually) printed off my own photo of the sunrise over Christchurch Beach from my recent few days in Bournemouth, stuck it to the page, used some Caran D'Ache water soluble crayons around the edge, added the title and voila!

Hi Suzie. Love your blog creations. I've hzd a look at part of your first Youtube video, but it seems to be in fast forward mode. I've altered the settings on the bar bit that pops up, but it's still fast. I will try again later. Keep up the good work. Beth XX

Beth my lovely, it is supposed to be fast ... if it was in real time, believe me you would all fall asleep watching me tapping my fingers while I think! Plus YouTube only lets you upload videos of 10mins I think, so I have to speed it up to get the whole thing on in one go :)
