Journal Journey's Ch02

Hello and welcome to my second challenge woo hoo. I am so pleased with all of you who joined in last month and thank you for being with me lol. Lets hope some more of you will get the bug in August to come and play along. Please help spread the word by adding my button to your blog if you haven't already thank you.

So August is the holiday season but I have completely ignored the obvious lol and this month we'll have a mythical theme I do hope you will all join me for:-
Yes fairy month. And as usual you can stamp draw put photos in your page/pages, calender pages? What ever you would like to do and mediums? well anything you like ;0) paint, collage, ink, etc. If you want more of a challenge why not try to use something you have had in your stash that's sitting there a wee bit unloved. Let me know in your comment if you did the added challenge, and what you used ;0) 

I used the transfer technique to make my fairies, from some photos off the web. However, I have altered them lots. And I thought I would use something I find hard to use as an extra challenge GLITTER. Don't get me wrong I love glitter but I always find it really hard to use ;0)

You can see the glitter here a little, the paint I used for the skin of the fairies also had a lovely sheen to it so their skin looked magical to ;0) OK now it's over to you, begone, go, create *sends you off with happy smile*  You can always ask questions in the comments I look at this most days and there is always my e-mail. Just remember I am learning all the time and DO NOT know all there is so come on, learn along with me and have some fun at the same time Love Dawn xx

I have been reading some books By Julia Kagawa about fairies and silly me, I bought two of the same one (I do this alot so dizzy;0) any way I thought you may like to have my extra copy ;0) It's called the Iron Daughter. If you would like to be put in the draw for this book, please leave me a comment to let me know you're interested when you  have entered this months challenge and I will make a draw at the end of Aug and announce the winner on the 1st of Sept along with the next challenge ;0)

Please leave a link in your post back to this post so others can find me and hopefully join in the fun. Thank you. I look forward to having a look through all your entries Love Dawn xx

Dawn, your pages are so beautiful. The colors are awesome. And I will try to advise some of the artists I visit of your generous book offer, for those who like stories about fairies. (I also have bought books that I already own, so don't feel too bad!)
