You Gotta Have Friends (And a Kate Crane DVD)

The challenge this time over at Stampotique is a Wish For The New Year. My wish is to see more of my friends and family. Real life can be a bit of a treadmill and before you know it it's Christmas again and another year has gone by. For my birthday I bought myself the fab Kate Crane's art journaling DVD's, (I knew it  was no use relying on hints to get this)  and armed with my shiny new  A4 journal, some Dylusion inks and paints, and the bottom drawer of my Stampotique stamps collection I decided to take the plunge and do a journal page.
Sooo I painted it in blue, pink and purple, hated it, and decided to tear it out lol. Then I remembered what Kate had said on the Art From The Heart taster day - that she NEVER tears out a page from her journal (let alone the 1st one) so I carried on with the splatting and the stamping and the bottle tops and the credit card painting and in the end I quite liked it!
I think that Karin and Marci look like X Factor finalists, and twinkie is just about to deck Louis Walsh :o)
So a Happy New Year to everyone, and may all your wishes come true (as long as they are legal and don't interfere with mine lol)
Thanks very much for looking x

  11. Fab journal pages Sue, I had to laugh about Smile punching Louis Walsh!!
    When I don't like a page, I paint over it and call it 'another layer'!
    Thanks for joining us at Stampotique again, Happy New Year x

  12. I also got myself the DVD and my page follows some of Kate's great teaching but deviates a little as I'm not very good at following instructions
