Time on My Hands, Art Journal


I want to share an art journal page that i'd done in the week.
I've cover my pages with Distress ink . When the ink was dry i splashed with water, waited a few seconds so that the water reacted with the ink then dabbed it with a paper towel.

With a stencil & Claudine Hellmuth, Sky blue acrylic paint I added some texture to my pages.
From a news paper I can across these hands & thought it would be a good idea to use them seeing that i did have too much time on my hands at times.
The idea using hands was given to me by my crafting friend Sue who had also used hands cut from magazines .     So here you can see the two hands i'd choosen to use & a Paperartsy flower clock thats i'd stamped & cut out.
So next i played around with how i wanted the hands & clock to work . I've also stamped my boarder & leaves using my Dylusions stamps , then coloured with Dewent water colour sticks.                               
 Once everything was dry & i was happy with it all i then stuck the hands & clock in place & added the words using the MSE alphabet stamps.
With another Paperartys stamp i added the circles.
Here are the finished pages.


  1. ...these pages are just amazing Jill...gorgeous colours, loVe how you've built up the background (nice step-by-step) loVe your stamps too, loVely crisp lines & lush leaves...superb!...Mel :)
