Accordion Page (originally posted on Live Journal)

I am so inhibited when it comes to working in my art journal it’s not even funny, but I managed another page. Inspired by Suzi Blu’s prompt to make accordion pages. Had to get out the boyfriend to set the eyelets as I just can’t muster enough force (I think it’s hilarious “honey.. can you whack this with a hammer for me?”)

I went to the FABULOUS store Hobbycraft yesterday and got lots of little things (I’m so art supply obsessed, it’s an addiction!). Stuff I bought that you can see on this page are embossing metal (why is it never possible to attain the same result as in the pictures on the packaging even though I followed the inscructions to the letter????), patterned stamps (they were in the kids section of all places! They’re awesome to create patterned backgrounds with), cheap white paint (£1.49 for 500ml of the stuff!!), and rub on words.

Iris Impressions

I bought this domain about a year ago (on 26 March 2007). It was supposed to house my photography initiative (where I would take pictures and try to build up a portfolio or something) but then it just sat here because I got busy with stuff like work.

Now I will try to use this as my creative outlet. Anything and everything will go here. Sketches, photos, writing, thoughts, anger, happiness.
