Great Opportunities

Over at Try it On Tuesday we have a masculine theme for the next two weeks called For the Boys. Maybe your creations could be for a baby boy, boys, teenagers, adults, sons, dads or grandfathers, if you need more inspiration please check out the fabulous creations from our Design Team.

I created a masculine page with an industrial look using some inks, stamps, stencils, design paper, stickers and recycled magazine images.

I started by building up layers of colour using Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks. I did this by applying the ink pads to an acrylic block, spritzing with water and pressing the block onto the page then drying each colour with a heat gun before applying the next. I stamped some cogs from a Steampunk stamp set from Docrafts using Toffee Crunch Memento Ink and then a ruler and also a bingo card stamp from Tim Holtz using black Archival Ink. Then I stenciled some Geometric Tile squares around the edge of the page using a Dutch Doobadoo mask and black Archival Ink.  Next I fussy cut the lightbulbs, clocks and metal semicircle door from a couple of old magazines and, like all of the paper elements, edged them with black Faber-Castell marker and stuck them in place using a UHU Stic. The world map pieces are cut from a sheet of design paper by Kaisercraft and the “402” is a Salvage Sticker by Tim Holtz which I embellished with two brown brads. To finish, I added the wording using double-sided foam tape which reads “each day holds the possibility for great opportunities”.

As T Stands for Tuesday I’m sharing a recent visit to Dahlia’s Kitchen which is a restaurant nearby, it’s attached to a garden centre so it was fun morning out (grin!).

As it was a hot sunny day we sat outside on their new patio near this beautiful water feature made from recycled metal, it looks a bit industrial like my page although I’m not sure what it is – any ideas?

I went with my sister who had a strawberry milkshake, I had my usual pot of green tea and we shared a huge piece of ginger and lemon cake which was delicious – Happy T Day!

Smile

I’m sharing my last page for this month’s challenge over at Art Journal Journey (AJJ) which I’ve been hosting and I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who joined in the fun!

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting all your blogs to see your wonderful Flora and Fauna artwork and I was delighted by all the different styles, techniques and mediums used as well.

Your amazing creations have really made me smile so I created this page to remember you all – I hope you like it!

I started by covering the page with some old recycled graph paper that my hubby used to mount his childhood postage stamp collection on and then I applied some Pébéo white gesso over the top using a palette knife to exaggerate the worn look. Next I tore the following: some book pages defining Flora and Fauna from a very old encyclopedia that I bought at a charity shop; a wildlife leaflet; a map leftover from a previous page; and a pretty floral paper by Kaisercraft. I edged all of these torn pieces with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink using a blending tool and stuck them onto the page using Liquitex matte gel medium. I also fussy cut some flora and fauna images of birds and flowers from the wildlife leaflet. Next I outlined the Flora and Fauna wording using a black Uni Pin marker and framed it using an oval die cut which I created using a Spellbinders Die and my Big Shot machine; the inside edge is coloured using a black Big Brush marker. I also added a die cut butterfly and Smile banner using double-sided tape. The hydrangea image and flowers are fussy cut from a wallpaper sample. I actually cut two of these images out, which took some time – those who know me will know I love nothing better than fussy cutting, it’s so relaxing (grin!).

So there is a reason that I fussy cut two hydrangea images as this page has a surprise on the far right-hand side, it opens up like a leaflet to reveal those who took part in the AJJ challenge this month. I don’t think you would know this by looking at the page as I fussy cut and arranged the hydrangea flowers on top of the folded section to match the hydrangea image underneath.

Inside, it is decorated in the same way as the main page by backing it with the old graph paper and then collaging the other papers on top. I printed the names from AJJ and tore them into strips, edged them with the Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and stuck them in place. Then I added some of the leftover hydrangea flowers, the wording and the sentiment, which reads “So many wonderful reasons to be grateful” as I am truly grateful to all of you who took part (grin!).

I sure had fun creating all my pages for this challenge and I hope you did too!

I’d like to say a special thanks to Susi and Bleubeard & Elizabeth for asking me to be a guest host, they have really provided such valuable support and encouragement, thank you!  I have also been overwhelmed with everyone’s participation and lovely comments; it has been such a pleasurable experience – thank you all! Jo x

Tomorrow is a new month and brings a new challenge at Art Journal Journey and I can’t wait to see what the new theme is and say hello to our new host – I hope to see you there!

Moments that take our breath away

I was inspired to create an aircraft themed page to remember this year’s Blackpool Air Show which was spectacular! I went for a vintage theme and added a saying that I thought was very fitting: “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away”.

I’m also linking my page to Art Journal Journey where I’m hosting this month’s theme “Poetry in Motion”, here you are invited to create a page inspired by a poem, saying or quote.

I started by adding patches of Blueprint Sketch and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks to the page using a blending tool. Then I used some stencils by Craft Sensations to add layers of clouds using Tea Dye and the Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink and a moustache design using Black Soot Distress Ink. As I went for a vintage feel I chose the moustache design which reminds me of flyers from the olden days who use to say ‘chocs away’ (grin!). I used black Archival Ink to stamp a plane image by Royal & Langnickel and some swirls by Dovecraft to depict a plane’s smoke trail. I cut some information from an old encyclopaedia about aircraft and stuck it to the top left-hand corner of the page using a UHU Stic. Next I layered different elements onto the page using a UHU Stic and double-sided tape to stick them in place, this included: an image of an old-fashioned gentleman to match the vintage theme, and two clocks and a compass which I fussy cut from a Kanban topper set; a large wood effect tag by Docrafts Papermania that I tied with string; a recycled tag which I added the saying onto using rub-on transfers by Kaisercraft; a ticket which I made using the same rub-on transfer set on white card, fussy cut out and edged with Tea Dye Distress Ink, its words remind me of the air show; a Victorian tag of a plane by The Works which I stuck to white card, edged with the Tea Dye Ink and tied with string; a map of the world which is a sticker from Poundworld; a tag that is die cut from map paper by The Works; and a wonderful plane postage stamp from my hubby’s childhood collection. The postage stamp is from Great Britain and was issued in 1969 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first non-stop Atlantic flight by Alcock and Brown in July 1919. Incidentally, Alcock went to school in St. Annes and there is a blue plaque to commemorate this at the school. To finish, I added some brown brads which I opened and stuck to the page using glossy accents leaving the fastener parts showing, giving the appearance of aircraft propellers.

The air show was amazing and my hubby captured some fantastic shots with his super new zoom lens so I thought I’d share the highlights with you. There was a mixture of aircraft, some old and some new and this includes both planes and helicopters.

This is the only remaining flying Lancaster in the UK, (and one of only two flying in the world) so we were very privileged to see it.

It was interesting to see and compare the old Lancaster with the latest Typhoon (Eurofighter) fighter-bomber which was doing all sorts of fabulous manoeuvres including handbrake turns, barrel rolls and flying upside down. This plane is so noisy it makes your tummy rumble (grin!).

This helicopter is an American Huey (Bell HU-1) and this one has been restored. It’s now locally owned and we often see it flying over our house.

There were lots of acrobatics at Blackpool Airshow again and this is the Trig Team, they fly vintage aircraft that were built in the 1940’s.

We also saw the Breitling Wingwalkers who are the world’s only aerobatic formation wingwalking team, this is a close-up of one of the planes. I’m not sure I’d like to stand on top of a plane while it’s flying let alone do synchronised wing-walking (grin!).

Of course you could always loop the loop instead (grin again!).

Then the grand finale was The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, who are one of the world’s premier aerobatic display teams. They never fail to please and here they are flying over the Blackpool Tower – amazing!

They are excellent to watch as they fly close together in perfect formation.

And they perform the most breathtaking stunts! Hope you enjoyed visiting the air show with me too; we had such a wonderful time (double grin!).

The Planets

Whilst out and about on our tandem we discovered some stone mosaic planets in one of our local parks. They were so pretty and unexpected that I thought I would create a space themed page after seeing them.

I started by creating a template of the Earth from white card by drawing the different sections and cutting them out. Using this template I then cut different papers to form the sections choosing designs that linked to the space theme; these included star constellations, space craft, dot shaped numbers, map grids and a denim dark blue to depict the sky at night. I had them sat on my cutting mat and I liked the pattern behind them so much, that I created the mat design on my page as the background. I did this by drawing black lines using a ruler and a Uni Pin marker and stamping lines of a dot and a dash border by Hampton Art using black Archival Ink. Next I edged the Earth sections using a black Sharpie Permanent Marker, stuck them to the page using double-sided tape and outlined the Earth shape using the black Uni Pin marker. To finish I added five space postage stamps from Equatorial Guinea using double-sided foam tape, these large designs are so colourful they really make the page.

As my page includes numerous circles including the shape of the Earth, the small dot border stamp and those contained within the different design papers, I’m pleased to join Rosie who is hosting the “Circles” challenge over at Art Journal Journey.

These are the wonderful planets that we saw at the park.

They form part of the play area so that children can learn all about the Solar System.

Me and my hubby saw them on one of our longer tandem rides when we headed up Blackpool prom and although our tandem isn’t quite space travel it sure is fun (grin!).

Thanks for joining me today! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.

Flying Carpet

I’m joining in the fun over at Art Journal Journey with my Flying Carpet page to tie into Hazel’s theme of “Magical Mystery Tour”. With a flying carpet you would be able to instantly fly wherever your heart desires.

I started by mixing acrylic paints to produce a turquoise blue and applied it to the page with a baby wipe. To push the colour back I also applied a thin coat of white gesso. I ripped strips of two different shades of blue-green decoupage paper and stuck them to the page using Liquitex Matte Gel Medium to create clouds. Once the gel medium had dried I outlined the decoupage pieces with a black Uni Pin fine line marker.  The buildings and palm trees are fussy cut from a children’s book, stuck to the page using a UHU Stic and outlined with a black Uni Pin marker. Next I added sequins to the sky sticking them to the page individually with Ranger Glossy Accents. The flying carpet and rule card are from the same book and are edged with a black Faber-Castell marker and then stuck to the page using double-sided foam tape. To finish I added a piece of self-adhesive fabric border along the left hand side of the page.

It’s also important not to forget the rules when flying your carpet … tee hee!

The buildings on my page remind me of what is known locally as “The White Church” not far from where we live. This beautiful church dates back to 1912 and was built in a Byzantine style. Its glazed white tiles make it a very distinctive and well-known landmark on the Fylde coast.

We only planned to take photos of the outside of the church for this post because like so many churches nowadays it is not open all the time. Whilst we were taking the photos, we met one of the church elders who very kindly invited us inside and showed us around the church.

We had never been inside before and I found myself mesmerised by its beauty and tranquil ambiance.

The way it is designed maximises the light with large stained glass style windows on all four walls.

The windows feature historical events which have been hand painted onto the glass; if you stop and stare you can see all the wonderful details. It is a stunning building!

It must be a magical place because if you look closely at the sky you can see quite a few flying carpets trails … tee hee! So I’m interested to know, if you had a flying carpet where would you travel to?

Thanks for joining me today! If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.

Tolkien Trail

Recently we walked the J. R. R. Tolkien Trail in the Ribble Valley in the glorious sunshine. It’s a 6.5 mile walk around the area that the famous author stayed in whilst writing Lord of the Rings. Some of the names from his book are based on places in the vicinity. It’s a lovely area with beautiful views across stunning countryside and alongside rivers. This page is inspired by all the wonderful sights and sounds that we encountered along the way!

Tolkien Trail - Art Journal Page

Firstly I smooshed Spectrum Aqua Markers to create a wash of colour for the different scenes, this was either a blue sky or the green vegetation background. Starting at the top left corner and working clockwise around the page I started to create my scenes. I stamped the tree image and then stamped some green leaves using Memento and Distress Inks, then painted the trunk and branches using Aqua markers. I doodled leaf outlines and drew a little bird in the branches, adding music notes cut from washi tape to depict birdsong. The Garden Pavillion image was fussy cut from a map of the walk, which like all the other collage elements is stuck to the page with a UHU Stic and outlined with a black Uni Pin marker once the glue had dried. The dappled leaves are stamped using various shades of green Distress Inks and a yellow Aqua marker. Moving on to the bee, this is a sticker and the background is stamped with a hexagonal pattern to mimic honeycombs. The flowers are cut out from a napkin and I doodled on top of them with black marker and white gel pen. The Cromwell Bridge image is from the map, the background of pebbles was created using a polystyrene homemade stamp and a mixture of Memento and Distress Inks. The two little birds were stamped using Archival Ink, I extended the branch and stamped the leaves too. The farmhouse and grasshopper are rub-on transfers and to create the lines of drying grass in the field, I used washi tape as a mask and added Distress Ink over the top with a blending tool.

details

The rusty iron cogs are a stencil design that I cut out from some leftover rusty metal sheet that I had made using cardboard, modelling paste and acrylic paints from another project. (I’m particularly proud of the results from this technique). The leaves behind the cogs are from napkins. I stamped the flurry of butterflies using Archival Ink and then added green foam flowers and the pretty paper daisies. At the centre of my page is the map of the trail we followed and I stamped a quote from J.R.R. Tolkien himself, I think it is very apt for this walk.

We took many photos on our walk and as you will see they give an indication of some of the sights that inspired my page.

Hills

Starting at Hurst Green we walked through farmland into Stoneyhurst College, I loved this kissing gate and the college was very majestic with its wonderful views of Pendle Hill.

College

Stoneyhurst College was founded in 1593 and famous students include Charles Carroll (a signatory on the US Declaration of Independence) and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Author of Sherlock Holmes)

woods

Then we moved into woodland, the leaves were stunning in the dappled light. I thought we might have run into a few more hobbits than we did or even Gollum under one of the bridges. There was an abundance of grasses and pretty flowers as we made our way up the hill towards the river walk.

Cromwell Bridge

As we walked alongside the river, we came to Cromwell’s Bridge, which was supposedly used by Cromwell’s army in 1648 on their way to the Battle of Preston, although the crossing dates all the way back to 1331 AD.

Views

Along the riverside path, the landscape opened up to large open fields and the farmers were harvesting the hay, cutting it down into neat lines. We entered a few farms and noticed old rusty machinery which appeared long forgotten.

stones

We stopped to relax, watch the river flow by and skim some stones, you can just see a stone in mid-flight by the water splash as it was sent skimming along the water’s surface. There were beautiful butterflies alongside the river by the aqueduct as we made our way back to the village that we started from.

With all of “Nature’s Wonders” we saw in the glorious lush green countryside, I’m pleased to join Art Journal Journey.

food collage

As a reward, we stopped off at The Apricot Meringue tea room in Clitheroe – we needed our pot of Green tea, sandwich and chips! We even had dessert to share, my hubby’s choice this time was a Black Forest Brownie Sundae – it was very yummy!

As T Stands for Tuesday I’m saying a big hello to the T-Gang and wishing you all a Happy T Day!

The World’s Fastest Land Animal

Today my page is inspired by “Nature’s Wonders”, which is the theme hosted by Gill over at Art Journal Journey. The cheetah is the fastest land animal in the world, so I thought it was fitting to create a page in tribute to this gorgeous feline!

The World's Fastest Land Animal - Art Journal Page

I started by smooshing diluted Spectrum Aqua markers onto the page using an acrylic block. Using a homemade mask I stamped circles of animal print using black Archival Ink, then splattered the whole page with Liquitex black acrylic paint. I cut out circles of decoupage papers and stuck them on top of the animal print circles using a UHU Stic. Once the glue had dried I outlined the circles with black Uni Pin marker and I doodled different African style patterns around each circle. The images and script are from old encyclopaedias and I highlighted information relevant to the cheetah – if you look closely you may see a cheetah sitting under a tree in the shade while looking out over the grassland. The cheetahs are from a doodle book that I painted using diluted Aqua marker ink and then cut out using scissors. I stamped some cheetah facts and added a beautiful postage stamp. To finish I added rhinestones the same colour as the postage stamp to highlight the text and balance the colours.

stamp

This postage stamp is from my hubby’s childhood stamp collection, it features a cheetah and her cubs and is from Nigeria dating back to 1965.

When I told my hubby I was thinking of doing a cheetah page to join AJJ, a happy coincidence occurred! My hubby told me he had recently watched a video on the cheetahs running ability and comparing it to the Greyhound. Here’s the link if you want to have a look. You can see why cheetahs are the world’s fastest land animal with their rotary gallop and it’s amazing ability to increase its strides per minute, spectacular!
