TGF Heart Journal

Well this again is something new to me and I'm not even sure its really for me but I thought I'd give it a go anyway!  Ria was off on a school trip when I decided to join the 'classes' over at TGF but when I was telling her about it she really liked the idea so we have decided to work together on this over the next 23 weeks and put together a little journal of joint crafting!  I bought a Maya Road file (its only a small one) but decided on that so that I can add my pages and try using different papers as well as different art mediums (not that I have a lot in the way of paint! mainly inks!)  anyway the first prompt/theme to get us started was 'Spread Your Wings' now immediately this brought to mind one of my fave lyrics by John Denver 'I am the eagle, I live in high country, in rocky cathederals that reach to the sky' and thats how our page came about and the image that we added is from a manga book by James Patterson called Maximum Ride that Ria has which is about a group of kids who have had their DNA mixed with avian DNA and as a result they have wings and can fly, I have yet to read it btu we are huge JP fans.  The background has been acheived by tearing some cloud shapes (Ria) then I inked over them and when we took the shapes off I was able to add some of the lyrics inside them.  The green was added by dragging the corner of the inkpad down off the paper, we are really pleased with the end result, I could get to like this! lol  Looking forward to the next prompt now which is on Friday.

Thanks for stopping by. xx
