Consumerism--uks art journal

Well after a good nights sleep  I am blogging early (for me).   I have the house to myself for an hour or two so I can think straight.  I am really enjoying the course over at This course ( the first online one I have ever done). is getting my mojo back for me., and I find I am crafting every day to get the journal pages done.  Great stuff!
The next prompt was Consumerism, how it effects us etc.  Here is my page:
Background: painted with Inktense watersoluble crayons--sun yellow, baked earth,& tangerene.
Stencil: used die cut Tim Holtz -jalopy and sprayed over it with Procion dye-turquoise.
highlights on car painted with a mix of gold & black acrylic paint.

Stamps:  rings-Hero arts, spots-Denami design, edge-Dylusions, mesh-Scrollswork,alphabet-Papermania
Inks: Distress worn lipstick, broken china, black archival.

Here is the finished page.  The speach baubles were cut from old book page and inked with distress inks -shabby shutters, mustared seed, broken china.  The text was printed on pc and inked with tattered rose distress ink, lines made with a black sharpie pen.  Just realised how grubby the table is behind the photo- sorry about that!
Thanks for looking---Kayh xxx


  1. Kay - You're on a roll girl! - This is a great page - Love the colours and the font you've used. Are you sure you've never done an Art Journal before!

  2. Thank you Leanie & Chris. this is my first real attempt at aj. I did try two pages a few months ago,but they were very poor, but have been following a lot of blogs lately on the topic. Racho113 youtube is well worth looking at. I find her so inspirational. Now I have a problem with uploading the pictures to the gallery. Can anyone help me please?

  3. I love this page!It's absolutely fabulous!
