If Birds Could Talk – a tag booklet by Robyn Wood

RobynHello, it’s Robyn with you today sharing a sweet mixed media tag book.  One again my project features stamps by Dina Wakley, did you notice Dina will be visiting us at Lulu Art in November 2015? Check our website and Facebook page for details. Book in quickly as places are sure to fill fast!

Summer in Australia is filled with strong colours, high heat and the ever present birdlife. I live in suburbia, close to a capitol city but birds are everywhere. We are often woken by the dawn chorus of parrots discovering a new shrub or tree in flower and during walks around the neighbourhood it is unusual if you don’t spot a handful of different species of birds. I often wonder what they are squawking about – are they delighting in the freedom of flight, laughing at the Earth bound humans or discussing something meaningful.

A Summer Adventure – a textured art journal page by Robyn Wood

RobynIt has turned blustery and cold in Brisbane this week – Winter is here at last, but my Instagram feed reassures me that it is Summertime elsewhere in the world!  I’ve created a textured art journal page to share with you today that uses lots of lovely texture, found words and a bird or two.

Molding Paste is perfect for adding texture to a journal page – it goes on like butter or thick icing and a thin layer is light enough for a small journal.  Check out how I created the texture using an old, plastic spoon.

My page also features found words which were cut from one of the free magazines which are abundant in my city. I find the non-specific, fashion and event style magazines are the best for a good variety of words.  I started searching with no plan in mind after I had the basic texture and trees done and just let the words jump out at me. Soon enough I had a theme and a title!  It is a fun way of creating journaling.
