Living like Clockwork

Nice trick if you can manage it :D

Been working on a journal page that sort of sums up how I'm feeling at the moment. I belong to a FBook group run by Tee Thompson, and we have been collecting a file of our own photos to use as inspiration. This month we chose this funky pic taken by my younger brother while out walking. It made me laugh...cos this is how we interpret "car bomb" in Yorkshire :/ 
WIP pics....craft acrylics are great for art journalling, they dry really quickly...and some are shiny :D
adding lettering(couldn't get that Will Smith rap that goes "tick tick BOOM out of my head)

add definition with black the naughty graffiti peeps do...

bit of dry brushing....

and finally the journalling.
"If we can just get over the belief that our lives are supposed to run like clockwork...then the little surprises wouldn't come as such a shock"
Thanks for the photo Baby Bro :D
Enjoy :D XXX


  1. That's a cool page, great inspiration by the car. Love the idea behind this page.

  2. that's so awesome. The letters look silver and the small lettering is wicked cool. I have to tell you the dry brushing added a LOT to the finished look. Wonderful.

    i went to be with that image in my head. Not sure I'll be able to pull off what I saw in my dream for it.. but going to try tomorrow!

    1. Can't wait to see what you come up with :D

  3. Yes, a delicious explosion, I like.

  4. Fantastic Gina!!! Thanks to your baby bro from me too ;o)
