My next Journal page

The theme from The Greeting Farm for this week was "Cut & Patste". You had to cut a face from a magazinge/newspaper and then draw the body on yourself. Oh no thought i, cannot draw to save self!!! Also could not see a decent face to use. Then I had an idea. Instead of some random person's face, why not have the face of a friend? My friend Hels was the featured artist in Craft Stamper this month and there was a wee piccie of her on the top of the page. I've known Hels for quite a few years now and she is such a talented lady. She is a lover of all things Tim Holtz so I decided to use some of the techniques I've seen her use on my background. I used various Distress Inks, blended them all together and then splashed the page with water. The stamps are Tim Holtz and the papers I used for her hat and dress are also tim, Retro Grunge stash.
I hope she likes my little homage to her, please go visit her blog and see her amazing creations.
I am entering this into the following
She's Gone Digital - Art Journal pages
Crafting For All Seasons - Fall Colours
Anything Goes challenge - anything goes
Sweet Stamps - anything but a card

Hi Shazza! I love your art jounal layout, I can imagine how difficult it would be to pick a head or face out of a magazine :) and use it in your artwork. I think you had a great idea to use your friend, how cool! I too love the distress inks, they are positively addicting so I haven't gotten them out for awhile now, I should do the same with that bag of pretzels...

Thanks so much for sharing your awesome creativity in my art journal link party this week!

Hugs, Jan
