A La Dina Wakley Style


I had this Dina Wakley book on pre-order for what seemed like ages!!  When I got back from my skiing holiday it was here waiting for me, but apart from flicking though it at the time, I haven't really done anything else with it, until today that is!!!


This page took my eye, if you have the book it's on page 119.  I had visions of using my new PA mini for the faces and one of the ArtistCellar pod stencils from the set I won.


And here it is.  I used pumpkin soup fresco paint through the stencil and coloured the circles with sky fresco, another new buy last Sunday!!  I was extremely brave and wrote the script myself!!


Page 123 also took my fancy, but then I do love that lonely girl image and use her quite a lot.


And here we are. The altered orange colour is a Claudine Hellmuth Studio paint and the blue is baltic blue from the fresco range along with the lighter blue which is sky.

These were great fun to make!!!

I don't journal either Sam even though I have several waiting for some TLC. Think I'll probably end up giving them away unless we suddenly start getting 48 hour days, lol!

I have to say though you have done a fabulous job with these two pages. I love both of them.

As for the point of journals I can see that if you use them as therapy (if you need it) where you use them to express how you're feeling at the time I can see how they might help. My DS who has been going through such a stressful time this past year even had it suggested to him by his GP as a self help tool especially as he is an art tutor by profession. Think I'm going to set him up with one of my unloved journals ;D!

Great Dina stylee, Sam.

Yeah Lesley I totally agree, but not to make something fab and then hide it away - just doesn't make any sense to me.

But like you say if it's for a personal thing and it stays personal then I get it, but then you'd not be blogging it anyway!!

I rest my case - lol

Thanks for your comment and support!!!!

they look great Sam and very Dina Wakely stylee. I wouldn't journal my personal thoughts in public - not something I feel comfortable with anyway but for arts' sake it's another string to your bow! lol

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
