Hope you are having a lovely weekend.
It looks like being a hot day here today so I'm off out to do some gardening etc before it gets too hot.

But first...todays page for 'Elegance and Grunge' at AJJ

 I started off with a piece of yellow A4 card but it was soon covered with brown paint.
The candles were from the front of a local free magazine - so I cut them out, stuck them down and painted around them and the rest of the area with brown acrylic paint. I then found some decoupage scraps of flowers and the hand, stuck them down and added some iridescent glitter glue to the flowers, lace cuff and her ring. I printed the quote out and added some Neocolor 2s around the edge. Finished off around edges of the page with some Pebeo Dyna paints and odd splodges of glitter glue.
thanks for stopping by
and hope you have a great day

  4. That's cool. Very elegant. And a clever idea. A nice clean hand. Obviously isn't someone who likes to do art. LOL. Stay cool and hope you got your gardening done. Hugs erika

  5. This is wonderful and my kind of art. Recycled art from a free magazine and lots of beauty and elegance. I really LOVE it. I was surprised the glitter showed up so well. I noticed it even before you mentioned it. It all adds up to a genuine beauty.

  6. Ooh beautiful Gill, those candles really glow with such a beautiful light
