WIP using patterns...

I thought I would show you some WIP first a page that I have used some of the old dress making patterns on. It only took a very small amount to cover an A4 page. If you look closely you can see where it reads 'FRONT BAND'. The layer underneath is old book pages, which shows through nicely in places.

I have also used some Domestic Goddess Graphic 45 papers mixed with Simplicity from Fancy Pants, lettuce ink and acrylic paint.

As you can see there is lots more to do on it yet.

Another WIP a cover page for another art journal

The title is made using letters from an Idea-ology salvage sticker book more Grahic 45 papers this time Jabberwocky from Hallowe'en in Wonderland, which are truely fabby.

Another busy week ahead, so it might be a while before you get to see the finished products. Hope you have all had a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by. Lynne x
