Hi all! I know that lots of you are going to be doing Project Life this year and Im so excited to see how everyone interprets the project too I love following pages on Pinterest as well. Anywho, this is my first few weeks of January finished and snapped! I can only try and be this speedy for the rest of the year :)
Last week, after looking at a canvas in my cupboard (which had been there for like ever) I felt a real need to paint it, and since I am currently obsessed with chevrons, I knew what to paint!I started by masking off some zigzags before painting with a base colour, which I chose grey.
Then after the paint had dried, I carefully peeled off the tape and covered over the grey with some more masking tape.
Then I painted the remaining white space, either in a block colour or a mixture (like I did)I mixed pink blue and white to create a more interesting effect. I removed the tape once dried et voila!! almost instant art!!
*YIKES! its been like a trillion days since I last blogged! (guess what I'm making as one of my new years resolutions?) But I am back with one almighty post which beware *has many many photos!*
I have really enjoyed this years JYC because I decided just to use my camera apps to take the pic's (except Christmas day) and then have had them printed off in one go, using post-its as reminders as what photo goes where. It has really worked well! In past years I have felt that I have to have a photo on every page but now I am content with my own journalling and hand made embellishments x
I used an AC 6x6 album in Lime, which I have yet to decorate. So I have tried to combine some of the pics to make it easier to see, hope you like...
