Journal Journey's Ch 16

Hello all, so you made it through January, well done. It's such a long month isn't it. I hope your drying off from all the horrid weather we've had in the UK & abroad  I hope you are all safe and feeling warmer. I would like to say thankyou for everyone making a special effort joining us here at our monthly Journal Journey's challenge in January :) I also want to do more art journaling this year as well as the many other crafty hobbies I have. 

So what do I have planned for this month? Well, blog land really inspires me and that's what has got me thinking about this month's challenge. Every year I see many people in blog land (some of my friends included) chose a word for the year, I have noticed this trend a lot in blog land and I'ts something I have long thought about doing, and this year I have decided it was the right time for me. Here's what I would like you to do....

Choose A Word

Now I don't want you to necessarily choose a word for the year (although you can if you so choose to). However, you can also have a favourite word? However you decide to interpret this I would like one word to be the focus of your page. so there is lots of leigh-way here and I know you won't let me down. So go to it. Here is my word for the year I hope it gets you started :0)

I started off with scraps of paper, then added some distress inks and some water to blend the papers together, followed by some stamping. I went on a free site for fonts Da Font and printed the word joy out on some card and then put the DI on a matt and sprayed water top of the ink and dipped the card in the various colours until all the letters were covered in ink, I allowed them to dry and then stamped some more over the ink, I also stamped some dragon fly's on some pretty scrap paper and cut them out to add to the spread, all very simple techniques but I think they look really effective, so have fun and share your work  in the linky below and we can stop by and see what you have been up to :0) Dxx
