Altered Junk Mail - Art Journal

 There was a recent swap being held in our Australian Swap Group on facebook where we had to alter junk mail for our partner. So, when I received an information booklet for Bowel Cancer, I decided to use that as my project, after reading through it, of course!

 This is a picture of the booklet, I used.


To start with, I pasted a heap of patterned papers, gelli prints and scrap papers to each page mainly to cover up most of the wording and a few of the pictures related to the content of the booklet..This was very therapeutic and a relaxing process. Posted below are a few of the pages after I finished gluing on some of the scrap papers.











I then decided to pretty up the front of the altered junk mail and do the front cover, as you can see in the picture below.


If you prefer to see the whole process of the front cover you can view it by watching the video below.


                                                 Hope you enjoy! Have a Great Day !

Latest layout for My Year 2017

The prompt for My Year 2017 in March is 'trash and make it pretty'...so I am putting a little spin on this months prompt and also adding the style of retro with it. Really not sure how I'm going to go with this style but I am definitely going to give it my best try. Just like everything dealing with art, it is in the artists own interpretation of it, so this is what I've come up with...

This is my introductory page in my Year 2017 Journal. I have tried doing my page using some of the geometric images. Not sure if this is ever going to grow on me...lol...but I gave it a shot.



My first layout in my journal was what I would call a rather 'plain' page but at least with this one, I actually like the outcome. Using the bright blue as a background, although, rather plain, seemed to set the tone for the rest of the page.


You can view the process of my pages in the following videos...
This is my intro page...



and my first page layout here...

Thank you and Have a great day!! Wendy xox
