Hi there my friends 
here I am again showcasing an art journal page with you .
I have my mojo back and I had such fun with this piece .

I love old Vintage photographs and I found this one 
of an old rusty car full of memories and intrigue ..

I wonder what this car would say if it could talk ??


texture paste, fabric and ink ..
no particular technique just splash it on and have a play with the palette knife  

Dusty Attic chipboard layered, inked with Tim Holtz inks
black soot, weathered wood, ripe persimmon and rusty hinge ..

 and finally I applied glossy accents . 

thanks so much for looking at my blog 
have a play with your texture paste and inks and see what 
you come up with 
it is fun .
big hugz and love to you all
bye for now and see you all again soon xoxo

"Bootiful" WINTER

 Happy New Year to each of you .
I am back at last !!!!
Did you miss me 

I am so happy to be creating again now that Baden ( my hubby ) 
is feeling much better and I have more time for myself .

today I am showcasing  CSI case file 222

CSI is turning 5 years old.
for the birthday celebrations Debbi kindly invited previous designers/detectives.
 to return and join in the fun    
CLICK HERE to see the CSI blog

I love these soft pastels with a pop of red .
I chose to use the prompt of WINTER


fabric, jewels, pearls, Bows, Flowers, Leaves Die-cuts.

Winter is my very fave time of year. 
I love to sit by a roaring fire sipping hot chocolate 
Wearing a think bulky hand knitted jumper and socks.
I love gazing at the frosty mornings as the mist rises
 to the morning rays of the winter sun.
thanks so much for looking at my work and leaving me some love to read.
it is great to be BACK !!! 
big hugz until next time 
very soon I hope .

I am working on an ART JOURNAL 
to show case next time 
big love and hugz  from Heather xoxo
