Cracking Copper!


Hello journal friends. It's almost the end of the month, why not enter this months Nature/Autumn challenge there is still time;0) and there will be a brand new challenge on the 1st of the month ;0). So to this Journal Spread. I thought I would try some of this paint on my Journal pages and see how it worked. ;0) It worked fine. I love colour and texture, so I try to make sure my pages have both in abundance ;0)


Isn't this Croco paint effective? I have had it ages, I am trying to use things I have lying around as I am on a NIL BUDGET for craft items for this next few months, I have a couple of Birthdays and Christmas coming and my son is at University in London and needs our support, so I am stretch too thin and my craft budget has gone. I think it's a challenge I am going to enjoy, I have plenty of things in I can use and I have an imagination would you like to join in to?  For example on this page I have used left over kitchen roll from clean up. The wings & body image are from a free supermarket magazine, the lady with the top hat was a free download and the music sheet was a greasy marked piece of paper ready for the bin but with a stamp and some ink it is now grungy and useful.

 

I have also had this frame for about a year. If you want to join in too, just pop by and leave me a comment in whatever post is the most recent and tell me what amazing things you have found in your stash or what you have got for free to make your journal spread. I think it will be inspirational for all of us. We can each stop by and see what you're creating. Love Dawn xx

Wow, wow, wow! Dawn, this is fabulous - I love the colors, the textures, the images, everything. I haven't been doing much journaling, but I've been collecting things to use, LOL! At this time of year we get a ridiculous number of catalogs in the mail, so I've been saving the ones with the prettiest graphics to use someday... some rainy day with no other chores to do... right!
