Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My Art Journal.

Well like I am sure you have all done already I have finally started my art journal.
I am not usually very keen on mixed media and I have discovered it is only because I was not so sure how to go about it. I took the plunge did some research and I am happy, and very proud, to share it with you.


 
I did some gel embossing and then added micro beads. Stunning effect

 
And here I made a tag. The same technique with the gel embossing BUT no micro beads.
 
I hope you like it.

January 2015

I cannot believe the year is into the 19 th day already.
I have to confess I have been very lazy with the postings on my blog BUT that is going to stop here and now!!!
We were in the Kruger National Park this holiday and had a wonderful break. We loved every minute of it and relaxed totally. And s they say in the classics all good things come to and end.

I have just a little news today. Black With Two has sadly closed the site due to too many other commitments. I totally enjoyed  being part of that team and might every now and then just still do pages with the colours combos.
