Art Journal Prompt Cards

I am loving all the Art Journal Prompt cards I am seeing everywhere and they have inspired me to make my own, Normally I just have a list of prompts and I roll a dice to pick the prompt, but this is a much prettier way to do it. 

I cut some card to size and then blended layers of Distress Oxides over them, before spraying them with water. Then I added some stamping and doodling before finishing them off by added the prompt.

What journal prompts do you like to use?

Hearts for Hearts

This was a fun little card to make, all the measuring and laying of masking tape was totally worth it. 

I laid out strips of masking tape, measuring to make sure everything was straight and even. Then using three different Distress Oxides I blended ink onto the squares alternating the colours, before spraying them with water.

Then I cut a little heart out of a piece of card to make my own stencil and scrapped over a beaded gel medium mixed with some red Gelato.

Three Cheers for Polkadoodles

The We Love to Create Blog has recently undergone a few changes, We are still a blog dedicated to mixed media, but Polkadoodles is our lovely new sponsor

I have created a canvas board for this months challenge, I am not completely sure I think it's finished, comment below, let me know what you think? 

Don't forget to pop over to the We Love 2 Create blog, check out my teammate's creation and join in the challenge.

I printed off some wonderful papers from the Belle Papillon downloadables, The music sheet paper was then scrunched up for extra texture before it was glued down with gel medium. Once that was dry I mixed some brown Gelatos with some beaded gel medium, which I scrapped through a stencil. Once it was completely dry I went around the edged with a different colour Gelato. I tried to keep all the colours within an orange/brown group (hope that makes sense).

 I then cut around and cut in half this beautiful butterfly from the same collection which I glued in place with more gel medium.

I then glued over the top a quote I had stamped out and another image from the collection.

 Then I went to town with my Faber Castel Pitt Pens in an effort to lift the images from the canvas.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my blog, 
It's not too early to start my Christmas crafting next month, is it?

Hunkydory Robots

 So I have been crafting for a few years now, and over that time my interests and skills have changed, every so often I like to go back and use some of this stuff. to see if I still remember how and because I really don't like waste.

I came across this cute little kit from Hunkydory and thought I should give it a go, and now I have three very cute cards for all those kiddies in my life.

How much have your creative interests changed since you started crafting?
