Wonder is.... for AJJ

Hi all...

Today for AJJ Nature's Wonders I have mainly just used Aquamarker pens and Inktense blocks and a couple of bird stamps that I lost the packaging for and don't the know maker. The added quote says 'Wonder is a natural response to the beauty of the world' by Amethyst Wyledyfyre and although I have added that digitally the font is one of a couple I have made. (one of those done by filling in a template with your own writing and then get it converted to a font)

I've not photographed it step by step mainly because once I get into it I often forget to do that, but this is kind of how it started.  Sorry about weird shadows in photo below.

I love using Aquamarkers with the cellophane (as you may have gathered by now) as you get some interesting texture and it's great to see where you are placing the ink.
This is the thing, you know...where I scribbled/doodled the markers on a piece of cellophane, spritze or breathe on it, then pressed it down onto the paper to transfer the ink.


I loosely painted some sketchy flowers with Inktense blocks and then outlined them with a black pigment pen. Added some squiggly bits with the pen and some splodges and extra bits with the Inktense blocks. Then stamped the birds.
Well its Friday once again
Hope your week went well.
Wishing you a lovely weekend
and many thanks as always for stopping by.

  8. OH Gill you've created really lovely pages here ... again!
    Great tip for using the Aqua markers, thanks so much for sharing that.
    I had picked some up with a coupon and never used them very much.
    You've inspired me.
    Your doodled flowers along with your pretty handwriting (not sure HOW you managed that but it was worth the time it took for sure!)
    I also admire you use of blank space which is something that is challenging for me.
    All around lovely!
