Anti Journal

Pages three and Four


Hi there, I'm back again to share two more pages from my Anti Journal. If you would like to see the first two, then click here

Page three's prompt is to to be bold and fill the page with garish colour which I think I achieved. The colours really are much brighter and 'in your face' in reality.  


It was very relaxing making all the blocks of colour with my Neo Color IIs and so that the wax doesn't transfer onto my tea bag page I have stuck a piece of paper in with some washi tape.

Page four's prompt was to, Turn things on their head and cut up a photograph and make something abstract. 

This was so much fun to do. I glued down a few strips of patterned paper and striped vellum, then I cut out a model from a magazine, cut off her head and replaced it with a stamp from the Celestial Images set from Rubber Dance. I added some mulberry paper, gold stickles, liquid pearls and watercolour, to change her costume a wee bit, (she has jeans on under her skirt, hehe). I also cut up and glued down a shoe and case set on the right, to make my version of an abstract image. Finally I outlined everything and used some letter stickers. 

Carolyn Saxby, whom I mentioned in my previous post has shared a 'double helping' of awesome pages in her 'Wreck this Journal',journal for her Wreck it On Wednesday (WOW) blog post, here. I'm sure you will find it as inspiring as I.

Thank you so much for looking and until next time...............
................thanks for popping by to say 'Hi' ((hugs)) Mo :o) x

  2. Page three is brilliantly garish and page four feels like being given permission to be naughty by cutting up things, (my inner 5 year old is speaking here)!

    Love your post Mo, glad Mojo is back:-) xxx

  4. Nice work, glad you are having fun! If you heat the wax, with a heat tool or hairdryer, it melts, dries and doesn't stick any more. Hugs, Valerie

  7. You are back!!! I think your rest did you good. I can see more freedom in your work now. I did't think the colors were garish. :). I like all those bright, bright colors. I love the lady that you rearranged. I might have to try that.

  13. Goodness, Mo. I'm simply in love with this anti-journal and how well you are keeping up with it. That page 3 is quite garish, but I like it. I also like how you cut things up (literally). So much fun to follow you on this fun journal journey you are on.

    Be sure to say hi to Wee Man. I look forward to his art, too.
