Tag Tuesday Catch up

Hi Everyone,
Here is an update on the tags I have done over the past few weeks for Tag Tuesday starting with the most recent.




Here are a couple of mixed media pictures I have done over the past couple of months when I was unable to post pictures, for the reasons given in a previous post.

It is easy to see why have chosen the theme Hearts and Flowers for my SKETCHBOOK FRIENDS Group isn't it? lol.

I would love to hear your comments they are always very much appreciated.

Thanks for dropping by.

A Sketchbook Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I'm so glad that I am all up and running again and able to share with you some of the things I have been doing since I was last able to post pictures on my blog.

Since I last posted here I have joined  a new group run by Lynn Holland called 'Sketchbook Friends'. If your interested in sketchbooks or making art journals pop over and take a look. It is open to anyone who would like to take part.You can choose a theme listed on the blog or one of your own and I have chosen Hearts and Flowers.

I have made my own book based on  Teesha Moore's video on youtube on how to make a sixteen page journal and this is front and back cover.


I wanted to post the one picture of the front and the back together but for some reason blogger kept turning it the wrong way around.

The cover has been created using Brusho, Pan pastels and water-soluble colour pencils. The black and white edging is done using a black Sharpie pen and white acrylic paint.

I am really looking forward to this challenge as I have been wanting  to make  my first art journal for a while and this has given me the incentive to make a start.

Please feel free to leave your comments.  I would be very interested to hear what you think.

Bye for now,
