Beauty and the Beast

With my Birthday fast approaching, my hubby took me to the cinema to see the new live action Beauty and the Beast film as an early present. I loved the film and have been singing the songs ever since, so I created this page.

To represent the song lyrics and story, I stamped a Script stamp by Kaisercraft over the page using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink fading the image as it reached the bottom left hand corner by using secondary stamping. I then covered the whole page with a thin layer of white gesso to push the stamped image into the background. Choosing colours to depict the constant snowfall and candle glow from the castle scenes in the film, I diluted ink from a grey Faber-Castell Big Brush marker by scribbling it onto an acrylic block and spritzing it with water, I then pressed and dragged the block horizontally across the page. I repeated the same technique using Paris Dusk and Pottery Clay Memento Inks. Next I stencilled more diluted Pottery Clay ink with a blending tool using a Swoosh mask by Creative Expressions. I stamped tree branches and cogs on the top of the page using Docraft clear stamp sets and the Rich Cocoa ink, these link to the castle grounds and also to Cogsworth who is one of the enchanted characters. The cutlery, chains and other images are paper cut from a Vintage Classic Design Pad by The Works and I stuck them to the page using Liquitex Matte Gel Medium. I added some sparkly swirls, dots and flowers using gold Glitterations outline stickers. Using the same stickers, I outlined a picture which I cut from the Cinema booklet and my cinema ticket which I coloured using Spectrum Aqua markers and stuck them to the page using a UHU Stic.  To finish I fussy cut a rose that I had stamped on some of the same Vintage paper using Burgundy and Moss Spectrum Aqua markers and coloured the image further by pulling some of the colour from the stamp outline using a wet paintbrush. All of these elements remind me of the cutlery, china and rose in the film.

As we were out at the cinema, I’m pleased to be able to join Yvonne from Meggy’s Way’s theme “Out and About” over at Art Journal Journey.

Our local cinema is independently run and not part of a chain. It is situated on the beach front and has 4 screens. It’s quite small, but with only 6 rows of seats, it has a great atmosphere, we really enjoyed the film. At less than half the price of a multi-plex screening, there is plenty left for popcorn!

To tie in with the film, my hubby surprised me with these lovely roses too! He knows how much I love the story; we have seen the animated film many times and we’ve even been to see the Broadway Musical when it came to London, which was amazing! My favourite song has to be “Little Town”, it’s the opening number in the film and I’m always singing the lines that Belle sings about her book:

“Oh, isn’t this amazing?
It’s my favourite part because — you’ll see
Here’s where she meets Prince Charming
But she won’t discover that it’s him
‘Til chapter three!”

Winter Gardens

We love to go to Blackpool Winter Gardens, we have been there a number of times to see shows, to find out about the history of the building on the Heritage Tour and just recently we attended the open day where you have access to all areas and can take your time exploring all the amazing venues.

Firstly, I coloured the background by painting alternating concentric circles of diluted Navy and Marine Spectrum Aqua Marker ink, this represents the beautiful glass domed ceiling and the blue accent colours that you see in the Floral Hall when you enter the Winter Gardens. Next I stamped a sheet music stamp by Woodcraft using Paris Dusk Memento Ink and a script design by Kaisercraft using the same Navy Aqua marker, this depicts the entertainment facilities, as well as the music being played on the famous Wurlitzer organs while we were there. I then stamped a palm tree from the Tropical Travelogue set by Hampton Art and scroll work stamp by Craft Sensations using London Fog Memento Ink. I used these same two stamp sets to add the chandeliers and art deco border using black Archival Ink as there are lots of chandeliers and art deco designs throughout the different areas of the Winter Gardens. To produce a watermark effect (fainter impression) I secondary stamped a series of images on the background from the Steampunk set by Docrafts using black Archival Ink, these images tie into the Victorian era when Winter Gardens was built and opened. I used a trellis design stencil to apply white gesso, Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and modelling paste as we saw lots of beautiful ironwork and plaster work throughout the building. With the background finished, I embellished the page with bronze art deco style outline stickers and tickets which are rub-on transfers; the words “Explore”, “Discover” and “Adventure” on them describe our time whilst we were there. The old images of Winter Gardens are from a leaflet; I cut them out with serrated scissors and stuck them to the page using double-sided foam tape.  I think they capture the magnificence of the Winter Gardens venues and finish the page beautifully.

As we are “Out and About” in Blackpool exploring Winter Gardens, I’m very pleased to be able to join Yvonne from Meggy’s Way over at Art Journal Journey.

Winter Gardens is an entertainment facility located in Blackpool town centre and contains ballrooms, theatres, large themed rooms and spaces in a variety of styles. It is a magnificent building that opened on 1878 and has changed and expanded over the years. It is now undergoing further refurbishment to restore and uncover its original features. There is a wide range of decoration including Victorian ironwork, Art Deco styling and the most amazing plaster work. As you enter the building you are greeted by this beautiful domed ceiling.

Then you enter the Floral Hall with its beautiful palm trees, tiling, blue accents, yellow columns and lights. This is where you have access to all the other venues including the Empress Ballroom, the Pavilion Theatre, the Galleon Bar, The Baronial Hall, the Spanish Hall, Horseshoe, Olympia and the Opera House.

There are a number of venues designed by Andrew Mazzei who was a well known Hollywood film and set designer. In the 1930s he worked on the plaster work and decorations for the Baronial Hall, the Floral Hall, the Galleon Bar, the Olympia Hall, and the Spanish Hall. The photo above is the Spanish Hall designed in the art deco style with a three-dimensional frieze surrounding it which depicts the Andalusian Hills and Villages; it is very atmospheric.

The Galleon Bar was also designed by Andrew Mazzei and it’s my hubby’s favourite! It is a very creative recreation of an old Galleon Ship from the Spanish Armada, complete with oak beams which are all actually plaster work!  It really does look like real wood, doesn’t it!

While we were exploring the different venues at Winter Gardens, music was being played on the Wurlitzer organs located in both the Opera House and the Empress Ballroom.

The magnificent Empress Ballroom is my favourite venue. It was built in 1896 and has a spectacular barrel-vaulted ceiling, pristine parquet flooring, ornate balconies and the most amazing sparkling chandeliers! I can just imagine the olden days and the excitement of arriving in a horse and carriage to find yourself in such a spectacular venue, the stunning dresses, the dashing gentlemen and the stories that filled the ballroom; I guess I’m just an old romantic at heart!

Music at High Tide

We always have fun when we walk along the South Promenade in Blackpool, and the last couple of times we have been lucky to have been there when the tide has been coming in. This is because we get to listen to the Hide Tide Organ, which is a sculpture that has pipes running through the centre and down to the shoreline, so when the tide comes in it makes the most amazing sounds. You can imagine my joy on hearing it so I had to capture this in my journal.

music-at-high-tide-ajp-new

I mixed blue, green, apricot, yellow and parchment acrylic paints to produce the background colours that represent the sea, sky and golden sand, and then applied them to the page with a baby wipe. I kept the paint strokes angled towards the right of the page so it looked like the tide was moving into the shoreline. Next I added strips of music note washi tape to represent the musical sound the tidal organ makes and merged them into the background using paint. Then I splattered white acrylic paint over the page, I did this by applying the paint to an acrylic block adding a little water and flicking the paint from the block with a paintbrush. This represents sea foam and I concentrated my splatters on the left of the page fading out to the right. The seaweed leaves are fussy cut from paper by Kaisercraft from their Rock Pool Collection, they are stuck to the page using Liquitex matte gel medium. I painted two wave-shaped paper borders blue and then added wavy detail with a white Uniball gel pen; they were easy to stick to the page as they are self-adhesive. To make my tidal organ sculpture I created a rust effect on a piece of card. Firstly, I stippled modelling paste onto the card to give a rough textured foundation and let it dry thoroughly. I then mixed yellow, red and black acrylic paints to produce brown and orange rusty hues, and then I stippled these colours along with black acrylic over the top of the modelling paste trying not to overwork the colours to avoid them blending together; the idea was to create texture and for it to look patchy like rust. Once the paint had dried I used a template which I had drawn to cut out my sculpture, then I coloured the cut edges with a Sanguine Faber-Castell Big Brush Pitt marker and I stuck it to the page using a UHU Stic. I stamped the words in an undulating pattern using a Docrafts Alphas Folk alphabet set and black Archival Ink. To finish I added a couple of seagulls, which are cut from white paper and stuck down using a UHU Stic; we often see a seagull perched on the top of the sculpture.

I’m so pleased to be able to join Yvonne from Meggy’s way who is hosting this month’s challenge “Out and About” over at Art Journal Journey.

high-tide-organ

The High Tide Organ is a sculpture which is 15 metres (49 ft 3 in) tall and is described as a “musical manifestation of the sea”; it is one of a few examples of a tidal organ.

plaque

“The sculpture was designed by the artists Liam Curtin and John Gooding, and was constructed in concrete, steel, zinc and copper sheet. The harnessing of wave energy, and the sculpting of the concrete and metals is said to produce a unique interpretation of Blackpool’s natural and man-made environments. The instrument is played by the sea at high tide through eight pipes which are attached to the sea wall. These are connected under the promenade to 18 organ pipes within the sculpture. The swell of seawater at high tide pushes air up the sea-wall pipes and causes the organ pipes to sound. The best time to hear the High Tide Organ is two to three hours before or after high tide. On very calm days the organ is silent for part of its cycle. The pitches of the pipes are based on the harmonic series in B flat” (Wikipedia). It makes quite an eerie sound, as you can hear for yourself on this link.

rust

Being by the sea, you would expect this metal structure to rust and it has a lovely texture to it as a result.

Fleetwood Beer Festival 2017

Every February we volunteer at the Fleetwood Beer Festival, we really enjoyed our three days serving beers from the bars and we met some lovely people too. This journal page is all about the amazing beers that we tasted. It was very difficult to choose our favourites this year, because there were so many that we really enjoyed.

beer-festival-fleetwood-2017-ajp

I started by painting broken stripes of Liquitex acrylic paint vertically down the page. Next I added small splatters of diluted Spectrum Aqua markers by scribbling the ink on an acrylic block, spritzing it with water and then flicking the ink onto the page with a paintbrush.  I chose Gold, Amber and Black coloured markers to represent the different shades of beer we tried. I stamped a faint grid design around the edges of the page, to add some texture, using a homemade stamp and black Archival Ink. I stencilled embossing ink using a distressed dot mask by Creative Expressions and then I covered the ink with a white embossing powder and used my heat gun to fix it to the page. This depicts the froth or “head” that forms on the top of the beer when you pour it. I collaged beer related images and words from magazines and our tasting notes using a UHU Stic to stick them to the page and outlined them using a black Uni Pin marker so they stood out more from the background.

glasses

I really like this information about glasses; we tend to drink from tankards/mugs when we are working behind the bar at the festival, as they help keep the beer cooler.

tasting-notes

The snippets from our own tasting notes show our five favourite beers of the festival.

bar

At the festival there were over 125 real ales, ciders, perries and world beers. We worked on the bar serving the cask real ale, some of which were on hand pumps. We tasted many beers and added our comments to the tasting notes so we could recommend beers to others; there was something for everybody whether your taste preference is fruity, coffee, chocolate, hoppy, citrus, floral, ginger, honey, treacle and we even had some that were a little like lager.

lunch

I just managed to get a photo of the beer and Subway Club sandwich we had in one of our breaks. My beer preference tends to be the darker coloured beer and I have to say the Spilt Milk (spelt wrong in the tasting notes) really did taste like chocolate milk. My hubby tends to like the paler beers and amber bitters and was not disappointed as they had one of our old favourites by Harvey’s brewey in Sussex. As T Stands for Tuesday I’m saying a big hello to the T Gang and wishing you all a Happy T Day!

harveys

By the end of the festival many of our favourite beers had sold out, I’m not sure if it was because we were recommending them or because we were drinking them – we didn’t drink all the Harvey’s Old Ale,  honest (grin!)

Always in my heart

This time of year my thoughts are filled with fond memories of my hubby’s dad who passed away in February 2011 and those who loved him so dearly (my hubby and M, his widow) – they are always in my heart!

always-in-my-heart-ajp

I started by creating my own decoupage paper using stamps, black Archival Ink and tissue paper. First I selected white and brown tissue paper and stamped them with a music sheet stamp and a script stamp respectfully. I chose these stamps to represent music and reading which are two past times my hubby’s dad loved; in fact me and hubby often listen to some of his favourite songs. I also stamped a small heart outline and the words “beautiful” and “lovely” onto white tissue paper as well as a series of images on the brown tissue paper; some of which are from a new Steampunk stamp set that M very kindly bought me for Christmas, I think they give the page a lovely vintage look and feel.

papers

I used my papers along with torn pieces of star tissue paper, dictionary pages, music and script pages from a magazine part work to create my background. They are stuck down using a UHU Stic and Liquitex matte gel medium. As you can see I selected the dictionary pages that defined Love and Valentine as this page is dedicated to those I love. The hearts are red tissue paper and they are stuck to the page using the same gel medium. I really like the way it melts into the page so that the detail underneath shows through. When the gel medium had dried I outlined the heart with a black Faber-Castell Big Brush marker smudging the ink with a baby wipe to give a worn look. I added more detail and definition to the hearts using a black Uni Pin marker and a white Uniball gel pen. I also highlighted the top right hand side of each heart using Docrafts white pigment ink, which I applied using a baby wipe.

close-up-1

To make my sentiment, I fussy cut a banner from a chalkboard tag and made it longer, so it would fit the heart, by inserting another piece of card in the middle and cutting it to shape. I continued the white outline and dots along the additional piece using a gel pen to mask the joins.  Next I stuck white tissue paper over the top of red tissue paper and stamped the sentiment on top using black Archival Ink. I stuck it to the banner and when it had thoroughly dried I added a border with a black Uni Pin marker. To continue the vintage look, I scrapped the tissue paper around the sentiment using a craft knife to reveal the red tissue paper and black card underneath and then I covered it with a thin layer of matte gel medium to hold everything in position. I placed the banner over one of the hearts using double-sided foam tape which finished my page.

I’m pleased to be able to join Linda over at Art Journal Journey and her very apt theme for February of “Fifty Shades of Red”.

dad

I have very happy and cherished memories of my father-in-law, he was a very down to earth, straight talking person and a gentleman in every sense of the word. He’d do anything for you and he used to tease me terribly about my height (I’m five foot nothing). I couldn’t help but love him and I’m so pleased his memory lives on always in my heart!

Love, Love, Love

This page is one of my hubby’s favourites and I am very pleased about that because I was thinking of him when I was creating it, he loves the colour red and also The Beatles – it’s called Love, Love, Love.

love-love-love-ajp

I started by painting the background red using Liquitex acrylic paint, leaving patches of white where the mixed media paper was showing through. Once the paint had dried, I doodled some circles and lines using a black Uni Pin pen. Then I covered parts of the page with layers of Pébéo white gesso and then red acrylic paint, using a palette knife. When I had finished applying the paint I ran the knife over the surface of the page which transferred the different colours and gave a lovely worn look to my background. I applied black acrylic paint using the edge of an old plastic gift card in lines around the page, then by dragging the paint into the centre of the page I created triangular saw-tooth shapes. To create the hearts for my love theme, I covered card with paper from a Design Pad and cut out a heart shape. I chose a paper printed with framed photographs to depict our favourite Beatle’s songs which are about life, people and love. Then I edged them with black Distress Ink using a blending tool and added the “love” wording using a stamp and Archival Ink. To tie the heart design into the background, I also stamped the “love” wording across the page using black Archival Ink and white Docrafts Ink. Next I arranged the rose garland around the hearts, securing the wire on the back with tape and the little roses using Ranger Glossy Accents. Before I attached the hearts to the page using double-sided foam tape, I painted white gesso where they were to be positioned and doodled with a black Uni Pin to frame them. To finish I stamped the words “Love” three times, doodled some wavy lines using a Uni Pin and added a length of the rose garland to the bottom of the page, securing the roses with Ranger Glossy Accents.

cavern

We love going to Liverpool and the famous Cavern Club is always on our list of places to visit, and is synonymous with The Beatles. It’s free entry, during the day and you can enjoy a drink and sit down while listening to someone signing Beatles songs – magic!

outside-collage

The Beatles murals created by the entrance are wonderful with the bright and vibrant colours. A John Lennon bronze statue stands opposite the club alongside brickwork paying tribute to all those who have played at the Cavern Club.

inside-collage

It’s a lovely atmosphere inside, there is a lot to see and Beatle’s music is played by a selection of artists to the very appreciative audience.

I’m also pleased to be able to join Linda’s theme“50 Shades of Red” over at Art Journal Journey and the “Hearts and Flowers” theme over at Try it on Tuesday (thanks for the suggestion Elizabeth!).

Spanish Lady

My inspiration for this page was an image of a lovely Spanish lady that I saw in a local advertising booklet.

spanish-lady-ajp

I started by diluting Desert Spectrum Aqua marker ink and two Distress Inks onto an acrylic block with water and flicking them onto the page using a paint brush. Next I added more red Distress Ink using a homemade polystyrene stamp, and then I used a doily stamp with red Memento Ink and also a serpentine background stamp using black Archival Ink. Using the same two inks I layered more images and patterns this time using stamps of a music sheet, a scroll heart and rose, a single stemmed rose and a pretty rose border.

music-sheet-1For the picture, I cut an oval piece of music sheet from a Spanish song called “La Paloma” (the dove) by Yradier and stuck it to the page using a UHU Stic. As you can see I made sure I included the word Spanish and the name of the composer.  I then edged the oval with a black frame which is a sticker.collageThe Spanish lady is from an advertisement I saw in a booklet, and as you can see only the top half of the dress was included on the advert, so I got creative and created the bottom half myself. Luckily I had kept many copies of the booklets, so I cut the dress sleeves and bodices out and designed a flowing skirt for her dress and then some shoes. It was a bit fiddly cutting the pieces out and arranging them but I think it worked really well and she looks like she is dancing along to the music while playing her maracas. I added further detail to the dress using a Derwent Graphik marker to make the pieces flow together. To finish I added the red and gold gems to the page which reminded me of the colours of the Spanish flag.

I’m pleased to be able to join Linda’s theme “50 Shades of Red” over at Art Journal Journey.

sangria

As T Stands for Tuesday I’m keeping with the Spanish theme and sharing a sangria with you – Happy T Day! You may remember Bleubeard and Elizabeth sharing a journal page on Boston with us recently, so I thought I would share the sangria I had from Joe’s American Bar on Newbury Street when I visited Boston. Although you can’t tell from the photo I’d say it was as big as a goldfish bowl  – it was so delicious and very welcome after a day of sightseeing and shopping!
