Barbara's Ochre and Kingfisher Journal Page 1 to 5.

Hello All
Well as promised here are some more pages i created in a collaborative Art Journal last year.
These pages were done for Barbara's Journal and her chosen colours were Ochre and Kingfisher (not colours i would usually use together so a bit of a challenge for me too.
I chose India as my theme and used lots of Ripped and torn Indian news papers i collected on my last visit to that Beautiful country.
I tried to give the pages a used almost trashy and treasure look as some places in India are full of mess and rubbish and then you will see a beautiful coloured bird or a gorgeous sequinned sari in the middle of it all and it really does make a dismal scene look magical.

Here is Page 1
On this page i have used Gesso, Claudine Helmouths Studio Gloss Multi Medium and Studio Acrylics Lumiere Paints, Rubber Stamps by Elusive Images, A piece of ochre coloured netting held in place with Copper brads.

Page 2

For this page i used ripped and torn Indian Newspapers, Gesso, Claudine Helmouths Studio Gloss Multi Medium and Studio Acrylics Lumiere Paints, Spellbinders dies to make the flowers,
Grungebord and flat backed pearls.

Page 3

On the third page i drew a Mehndi hand in the centre and then used a stencil on the left hand side of the background.
On the right hand side i wrote a quote from Mahandas Ghandi.

Page 4

I had great fun and printed onto the newspaper background with my hand and filled the prints in with Stencils using Studio Acrylics and Lumiere paints I then drew around the hands with a Black Gel Pen and wrote quotes from Ghandi around them.

Page 5

For the final page i really went to town and had fun.
I wanted the page to look like a wall in India that had been used to put on and rip off Bollywood Film Posters and stuff.
As well as the Materials had used on the previous pages i added Pattered paper napkins, Acetate,
Bottlecaps , Angelina Fibres and Friendly Plastic .
Below is a close up of the Peacock Lady in the acetate frame.

Barbara really loved the pages and i enjoyed the challenge of those colours.
More soon
Love and smiles Rob xxx

Small women are believed to find it more complicated to use fat than larger women
as they have got a smaller calorie need. What you should do is to focus or target a particular group of
muscle for once or even twice a week. The problem is that many
do not follow through with their fitness plans
and thus fail within the first 3 months of starting a new
fitness plan or routine.

Vanity Fair is stylish and well written, and they push the envelope in celebrity reporting,
giving readers if not a balanced representation, then at least an interesting angle
to a well known personality. Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan had a rough battle, when the
movies related to them were released at the same time. She married singer
Mark Anthony in2005 and released her next album called Rebirth.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and
tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Or maybe you look at it from a monetary standpoint and decide that Guy Ritchie and
Madonna divorce was worse because they were married so
long and have children and there is a lot of money involved.

Women who are planning the wedding of their
dreams can find plenty of fantastic information
in Bride’s magazine. He covers gossip on celebrities, actors
and musicians.
