Travel tip in 2 & 3

Sometimes I make life harder for
myself - and I have no idea why!!!
I signed up 3 times for the tip in pages
swap - so why not just make 3 copies of one design?

Too easy....

So here is design number 2....

celebrating the history
and culture
of Wales

the third design also focussed on
Wales - using photographs I took myself,
celebrating the countryside
and some buildings I love:

The final design doesn't work as well as I
hoped - it kind of looks less like a tip in page
and more like a photo album,
but at least the landscape is unfamiliar
to the person who'll be receiving it.

Travel Tip in page

I have signed up for a 'Travel' themed tip in swap.

Once upon a time, a long time ago,
I lived on a ship, and travelled the world....

I remember sending
airmail letters & postcards home,
probably not as often as I should have....

I often used to wonder about the world
below the waves we were sailing over...

...but have never found the courage to travel there.

Collage sheet freebie

Here's another collage sheet for you to use in your art. I travelled far and wide to find the doors, windows & statuary to take photos of, so please don't sell or repost the images in any manner. You are more than welcome to use the images in your artwork, but not for magazine submissions or to make a profit...

Another deco page

I've had some kind of flu-like virus for a few days and had begin to think my muse was sicker than me as I wasn't even feeling up to making art - but I am feeling a little better today and have done some art - first the photo collage, and now this deco page. I am pleased with it. I hope the owner likes it too.

Collage sheet freebie

Please feel free to download and print and use in your art.
You may need to adjust the size in print preview before printing!

Another deco book

Another deco book is on it's travels, this is my contribution:

I painted the page with Golden micaceous iron oxide,
then stamped a scroll with Brilliance platinum planet,
added 3 flowers,
stuck a skeleton leaf down with gel medium,
then added a paper clay lizard that
I had also painted with micaceous iron oxide.

For the back of the page,
I used a brass stencil and some
Dreamweaver stencil paste
(which is way too gaudy)
then stippled over the stencil paste with
Brilliance inks to dull it down a little.

Deco Book

Here is my page in somebody else's Deco book...

I covered the cardstock with metal tape, added colour with alcohol inks, added a packing tape image transfer, framed it with some german scrap and stamped some leaves.
