Anti Journal

What a wonderful time I am having with this magnificent journal and I hope it shows in what I share and what I say.
Here are two more pages I would like to share with you today.

The prompt for this one was, 'Pour colours here' I sprayed the paper with water, added acrylic paints, more water and tipped the page up to get it to run down. I wasn't very successful at it but was happy with it anyway. I stamped using 'Water Droplets' by Ryn, went back over the black lines that were printed there, dribbled some dylusions ink and then spattered some white paint on top of it all.

This one said to 'Show off your true colours' The bird image and black plumage was already printed. I added the leafy feathers with Derwent metallics just pencil crayons, the white dots are my white signo pen and the background is done with some Pebbles chalks. I fixed it with cheap hairspray.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Karen has done in her journal, but I'll be surprised if Carolyn will have managed anything after falling and badly cutting her right hand :( Big ouchy! Sending best wishes for quick healing to her from me and Wee Man. You can visit her here to send her some love if you wish. 

Meanwhile, Wee Man and I have been looking after our steadily growing caterpillars. If you would like to see the first mention of them, have a look here.
We started with five caterpillars but now have just three chrysalides.

 We will be transferring them to a net habitat in preparation for their magical transformation into Painted Lady Butterflies on Friday; they have to be left untouched for  a few days to ensure the cocoons have hardened sufficiently. 

Isn't it cute? Actually it reminds me of a collapsible laundry basket, lol.

Well thank you for coming by and for taking the time to leave me a few words.
Until next time, take care, {{Hugs}} :o) Mo x


  1. Two fab pages Mo! Great drippage and splats and great idea to add dots to your bird.

    Looking forward to seeing the Butterflies emerge, hope Wee Man is enjoying the pricess too:-) xxx

  2. Thanks for visiting and leaving me a comment this week

    Your journal pages make me want to get all painty and inky, sounds like so much fun, and I just haven't had time to sit and play here latelyHmmmmmmmm that's gotta change!!!

    Happy T-day wishes

  3. Lovely work, that bird in your journal is very pretty, and good to see how the butterflies are developing. I have a laundry basket like their habitat! Hugs, Valerie

  4. I have tried that water/paint spilling technique before but I added too much water and the whole page turned blue haha silly me!! Yours looks great though :-D

  5. Lovely and fun journal pages! ...and quite the scientific butterfly project...I wonder how long they are in the chrysalis? looking forward to seeing pics of butterflies/moths!

  6. Oh yes Mo. You could tell that you have enjoyed working in your journal since the first page. It certainly helped to get your mojo back.

  7. I love your pages..... the colours in the drippy one are great and the peacock looks really pretty. I can see the fun you are having with this.... it shows :)

    Ohh the butterfly project is so exciting! Enjoyed sharing the stages so far.


  8. Love that first page, I have a thing about drips and splats at the moment so it is right up my street! The bird looks fabulous too...

    I am getting very excited about the emergence of the butterflies now - I think I may need to buy one of these kits so I can experience this wonder myself too!

    Hugs to you and wee man! Anne xxx

  9. I am liking your journal ...very creative.
    Those caterpillars are coming on great. Err do they eat each other then?

  10. Oh that is SO fun! Butterflies and color oh my! xoxo

  11. Wonderful journal pages you have there. So bright and joyful! :)

  12. Thanks for showing us the butterfly kit I've bought one for Olivia's birthday in May.
    The peacock page is great, I like what you did with the body of the bird. You experimented very well with the wet page. Did it seep through to the other side ? Xxx

  13. You are having fun with this book and it's fun to watch you having fun.
    Growing a butterfly must be fascinating.

  14. Those pages sound like fun! Turned out pretty too.My first thought too about the net. : D
