Last Saturday I went to the Craftorij with a friend and spent a day Art journaling. The idea was to make a tree out of bits of book paper. The inspiration was Christy Tomlinson. This is what I made:
We started with adhering bit of torn pattern paper on the pages and then painting them so that some of the patterns still peeked through. After that we tore book texts into small bits and created a tree from them. I couldn't stop and made the houses from book paper as well. I used some more pattern paper for the leaves and the doors and windows of the houses. We did some background stamping and used Pitt brush pens to create shadows around all the objects. I then found Mela in my bag. (Always leave home prepared, lol) and decided to put her under the tree for a pop of colour. I then stamped the circles with red ink on reddish pattern paper, cut them out, glued them on and doodled around them as well.
It was a very enjoyable day with likeminded people, lots of refreshments during the day and a nice lunch too.
Thanks for stopping by !
Hope you like it.
