The One Day Project: True Blues

Today I would like to share another page in my vintage collage journal.


The journal is made from altered 3½ inch square drinks coasters.


Just using scraps of paper & a gluestick.


Scissors & a sanding block.


Blending colours,
following the movement of the images
& enjoying the pure essence of creativity.


You can read the story behind this project here.

Stay true ...

Another altered playing card for
#52CafeCards
which is the year long creative challenge
using prompts & inspiration from Marta Lapkowska.

The prompt for Week 26 was Z for Zentangle.


I covered the playing card in Ranger's Texture Paste
& once dry, painted it black.

A few splatters of white gesso completed the background.

I drew my tangles on a piece of heart shaped watercolour paper
& added my printed words.

As we are halfway through the challenge,
I put together a short video flip through
of the altered playing cards thus far.



Do you have a favourite?
I'd love to know which one & why.
Just leave a comment below.

Be yourself

Another altered playing card for
#52CafeCards
which is the year long creative challenge
using prompts & inspiration from Marta Lapkowska.

The prompt for Week 25 was Y for Yellow.


I used a layer of white mulberry paper
to partially obscure the playing card image of the Queen of Hearts.

Next came a piece of pale yellow handmade paper,
edged with Distress Crayon (black soot).

The butterfly is an image from Brave Girl University
& the girl is a Tim Holtz Paper Doll.

There is also a small piece of lace,
three yellow glitter gems
& printed words.
