Washi and Some Artwork

Hi everyone, I hope everyone has been enjoying some lovely crafting time.  As for me, I have been a busy girl.  I managed to complete another page in my art journal.  As you would know from my previous posts, I have accepted the 30 Day Smash Challenge set by the Facebook Smash*aholics group.  You can read about it here.  The full list has now been posted, you can check it out here.  Kellie did such an awesome job setting the list out in such a fun way.

Anyway, I worked on the Washi Tape page a couple of days ago but had not yet had a chance to post it.  So here it is.

I could not resist the temptation to create a page centred around Washi's origin which would allow me to incorporate a geisha girl.  I simply love Geisha's.   I wanted to keep it fairly simple so that the Washi could really show through.  I don't have a huge collection as yet, so I thought this would be the best way to showcase them.

I have also been spending a lot of time on youtube lately (LOVE YOUTUBE) and since I have just started art journalling, I have enjoyed learning from all the very generous contributors on youtube.  During my search, I came across a fabulous artist (one of many) Christy Tomlinson.  For any of you that do not know about her, she is a mixed media artist who has created many fabulous mixed media works including her "She Art" range.  She also has a series of online workshops that you can undertake to learn how to create your own She Art.  I am saving my pennies for that currently in the meantime however, I decided to give it a go myself.  Over the last two days, I have now completed four canvases.  They have turned out to be not only thoroughly enjoyable but relatively easy and really quick to do.  Here are the four I have completed.

I will be making lots more of these I think in the near future.  I hope that you all enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoy making them.

As for now, its time for bed.  I have a dreadful cold and it always seems to be worse at night.

Until next time, get crafty.
