Paris Journal Page

It's almost the end of the month and that means my month of hosting the Art Journal Journey challenge with my theme of Magical Mystery Tour will have come to an end. Thank you everyone that took part your work was fabulous - I enjoyed visiting your magical places with you.

I have one more page to share, we went to Paris years ago and I loved it and have always wanted to go back - I was so happy when my old London bus took me there.


I covered my page with a sheet of Imagination Crafts rice paper and then added some Gecko Galz images, then I stamped some images using Invoke Arts stamps, I added them to the page together with some flowers and gems.

Thank you for looking, have a lovely weekend.

Santorini Sunset

I'm hosting this months Art Journal Journey challenge, my theme is a Magical Mystery Tour, there has been some wonderful entries and I've enjoyed looking at them, Bluebeard and Elizabeth has made some gorgeous pages of Santorini and it reminded me that I did a painting of Santorini last year for an online workshop that I was doing. It's not that good and it never got blogged but I was quite pleased with it, so on this very cold day my old London bus has taken me to be in the lovely sunshine at Santorini.


Thank you for dropping by.

Love ATCs

Good morning everyone, I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.
Today I'm sharing the ATCs that I made for the UK Stampers March ATC swap, the theme was love.


I used a stencil on the background with distress inks and added some music tissue tape and stamping. The main image was stamped onto a separate piece of card - I think the lovely heart stamp was free in a magazine.

Thank you for dropping by, enjoy your day.

Mad Tea Party Journal Page

Good morning all, it's a lovely bright morning here - a bit chilly though.

I'm linking my page to the Art Journal Journey challenge the theme is Magical Mystery Tour.

My old London bus whooshed me through the swirly tunnel to visit the Mad Hatter's Tea Party,


I decided to have a go at a digital page and for the background I used one of my photographs of a field of buttercups.


I added images from a My Craft Studio programme called Make A Date. When I was happy with the result I printed it and glued into my journal.


I painted the swirl with white acrylic paint and stamped the Emma Godfrey swirl with black Archival ink. I stamped the Paperartsy bus onto shrink plastic with Stazon and shrunk it, I glued it to the page. I cut some words out of an old Alice In Wonderland book, stamped some Indigo Blu words and a Non Sequitur clock and added them to the page. I doodled round the edge of the page.


Thank you for dropping by to take a look.

Art Journal Journey - Magical Mystery Tour

Good morning everyone, I'm so happy and thrilled to be hosting this months Art Journal Journey challenge, the theme that I've chosen was inspired by the Beatles song Magical Mystery Tour. Imagine there's a magical bus or train or whatever mode of transport you choose and it's there to take you on your mystery tour - it could take you anywhere, into the future or the past, into one of your favourite books, a country you've dreamed of going to, anywhere your imagination takes you.
I've chosen and old red London bus as my transport and for my first tour it whisked me away to see the sights of London - I wonder where it will take me next.


I painted the background with gesso and acrylic paint and stamped some images onto tissue paper and glued them to the page with matte medium. I printed some photos of London and stamped some images onto white card, I cut them out and glued them to the page. I gave the page a coat of matte medium and when it had dried I used my pitt pens to colour the tissue paper images.

I hope you can to enter the challenge - thank you for looking, have a great weekend. xxx Hazel.

On the background I stamped and embossed the Paperartsy gears with gold powder. The Deep Red flying man was stamped onto card and cut out. I added some metal gears..


I used a Carabelle Studio heart mask and distress ink on the background and I stamped the Stampers Anonymous flower and coloured it with distress ink. I embellished it with a couple of small humming birds and some sequins.
