I have made another art journal page, I am really having fun playing with my Gelli Plate,  This time I also used my Cricut to cut out stencils. See the spiderwebb that's  from the 31 rst october cartridge, just cut it out and
use as stencil. I did the same to make the swirly background, that's on  the storybook cartridge.

This A.J. page is for the Alpha Dictionary challenge at Craft Barn blog this time it's the letter T.

 Because Rick St. Dennis MFA had just send me an awesome image that was based on the Game of Thrones, you can find her here, I decided my word would be "Thrones" that way I could use this awesome new image to join this challenge.

I cut out the defenition of the word out of an old dictionary and put it on my page.

The word Thrones is also on there and there are several T's in the senti, so I guess this will do to enter, working in a real dictionary is to small for me sorry....

here she is:

Background acrylic paint and gelli plate. I used my cricut to make stencils to for the gelli plate, worked great :-) .  The RSD digi is coloured using caran d'ache luminance 6901 colouring pencils

Chunky ATC

This is my first ever chunky ATC, not made out of wood but just cardstock, template was provided bij Haunted design House challenge 172 in which this is going to be entered.

The background card symbols is a rubber stamp, don't know which brand, the Alice stamps are all Rick St Dennis, most of them available in rubber now at I Brake for Stamps.

The card stock is coloured using distress in different shades of blue. All stamps are coloured using my caran d'ache colouring pencils. The key hole is a clear stamp (marianne design i think) covered with embossing  powder.

the chunky atc's front can be opened to a little shadowbox.

I will also enter this in Smudgy Antics challenge "use metal"   the metal is in the hinges,the corners,the key and clock and the little doorknob,which is made out of button.

Newly Deads

Another AJ page, still using prints of the pile of gelliprints i made first time, I used too much paint on this one so there is al lot of texture on this print. The texture makes it hard to write on the paint.  I never use pencil first, and I know I should, but I am a bit of a lazy crafter so I take the chance and just handwrite without any guidelines. Most of the times it comes out ok.  This time it didn't. The quote was to long really to fit in the space left, and I had to squeeze it in, but I thought it would work so well with the image I just had to use it.
I do like the rest of the page though

The digital image used is called Zombie Newly Deads by Rick St. Dennis, I love this image, it's sooo funny.
The quote (hope you can read it) is by Bob Dylan
the window in the bg is a stamp ( i thought of using this stamp after i glued the digi on the bg so I had to make a mask for the digi to get the stamp in the bachground LOL) , the bricks are a stencil

another witch a j page

I had so much fun colouring  the witches and then making them into an art journal page. This witch is another Rick St. Dennis image and she is called Cassandra. I thought she would look nice in blue and yellow, it's  something differerent then the dark coloured clothes witches are usually in anyway.

The background is another print of gelli plate,  when I tried to play with the gelli plate for the frst time I made a lot of prints to try what they would look like. They didn't come out as I wanted but some of them I liked.  To use them I've added some foam stamps and paint and then I liked the result.

then I coloured the witch image using my pencils and then cut it out glued it to the background and added the senti and some doodles.

 Her esome pics using a daylight lamp

and some  in real daylight,  her you can see the gold moon and stars much bettter than in the pics with the lamp
