"Alice of Hearts" Art Journal Page 3 for Smeared & Smudged!

Howzit Everyone!
Thank you for all the wonderful comments you've been leaving me over the last fews days!  I'm so glad you enjoyed our first Smeared Ink Design Team blog hop and my 2 art journal pages I've created so far in the KICKSTART YOUR ART - Art Journal Every Day challenge :0)

Now for Day 3 of KICKSTART YOUR ART!

"Alice of Hearts" - Art Journal Page 3
Today's Challenge: 
Easy Found Objects Background Technique
I wasn't sure if I'd get the time to play today and the minute I thought that I knew exactly what I wanted to create!  Don't you just love how inspiration can come just from a single thought!  I'm also pretty pleased with myself coz I still managed to stay within my own theme for my Art Journal titled "Alice of Hearts" ;0)

I like to gather unusual looking leaves and twigs and stuff so for my found object background I took a photo of 3 dried palm leaves on my terracotta tiled floor with my iPhone and then applied a texture filter to it in Photoshop CS6.

My original photo
To keep my AIW theme going I used Smeared Ink's White Rabbit digi image and coloured everything in Photoshop and used the same "A" and "heart" images from my last 2 pages.  The Heart Wings digi set is discontinued and is now only available as a rubber set in the Smeared Ink Rubber Club!  Now I wonder what tomorrow's challenge will be, stay tuned ;0)

Happy Stamping!

  1. very cool! Love how you did the background!

  2. Ooh, love the leafy background! And I think it's cool that you're carrying the theme through the whole week.:) Thanks for playing along with us!

  3. WOW! Absolutely BRILLIANT, Leigh! I sure wish I could manage digi work. this is AMAZING and I'm sooo happy you could stick with your theme. I'm LOVING it! xxD

  4. I am not a fan of digital art. However, I really enjoy your piece here. The use of the bunny and words in the clock are unexpected but go so well on it. The palms in the background add dimension yet anchor it for me. I don't know I just really like it. You got mad skills!

  5. Great page
    I love your background & your image
    Nice to play with you

  6. Another stunning creation and a very creative background! =)
    Hugs, Elenor

  7. So pretty! This is my favorit eimage from the set, and I adore how you've colored and displayed it!
