Chris is home this week so we have been busy catching up on the shopping and this evening we went to the airport and fetched my Mum home to stay with us for six weeks... she has just gone off to bed as it is silly o'clock to her being on French time.
This is what my work desk looks like this week... it has the pieces of Donna's journal there... it really needs tweaking and putting together but I have to admit to not really being an art journal kind of gal... I love them when other people do them and I would love to free myself to be able to smear paint on magazines and glue stuff willy nilly and then do arty farty stuff to the page to make it look awesome.... it really is a lot harder than it looks but this journal... well, the makings of it, have been sat at the side of my desk for a couple of months and I had sort of decided to put it down to experience but then I mentioned it to Donna and she asked me to finish it....
I have to admit I love the cover... it turned out exactly how I wanted it to... which is something of a surprise!! It looks almost metallic and bronzed but its only tissue paper painted onto the chipboard with black paint and then a bronze paint smooched into all the crevices but its really fab looking!!
See? Isn't a lovely finish?? Now if I could just get that to flow over onto the pages... hmmm! LOL
