February Postcard Swap.

This my entry for the February's postcard swap on ukstampers .
The theme set by Sid who is running the swap was to use a face anywhere on your postcard.
The face I've used was cut with a die by Leonie Pujol on black card.
I've used Acrylic paint by Martha Stewart & paperartsy for my colours & a versa fine ink pad Vintage Sepia with a Kaiser craft wood grain stamp.
The hexagons are also die cut using Diamond press dies & stamp a checkerboard pattern on them with a darkroom door stamp.

Two Journal pages

A couple of journal pages I've been working on recently.
my first is walking in thin ice .
I have used the Tim Holtzs die cuts of the ice skates & coloured the with a copic marker & posca pens & added some cotton for the laces.
The legs I draw free hand on some Bo Bunny scrapbook paper.
The ice was made with Acrylic paint & crackle glaze by Paperartsy.
 My second page is titled "Begin Each day With A Grateful Heart".
I do try but it can be hard sometimes.
For this page I've used Distress stains ,A Stampin up heart stencil on the back ground .
The large heart was cut free hand using more Bo Bunny paper .I added some little butterflies I had in my stash.

Going round in circles

We all have days I'm sure  where it seems as though your just chasing your tail & keep running round in circles.
Today this is how I feel & as you can see this is reflected in my journal page.
 
I've used book pages for my back ground & used white Gesso through a brick stencil .
The die cut arrows have been cut using the sizzix die .
For colour I've used Gelatos & acrylic paint s.
