Dyan's Challenge

Hi folks - energy and creativity have been thin on the ground around here lately - so when I saw that a challenge had been put on to one of my facebook groups (the Dyan Reaveley Art Journaling Fan Club) I didn't think I had much chance of getting it done.  
So I saved a bit of energy up and decided to give it a go this afternoon. 
 Nothing much was happening in the creativity section of my brain but I decided to mess about and see if I could come up with something.  
After mindlessly colouring and cutting I found that some ideas came together and this is what I produced.

Background done with Dylusions ink sprays and the figure is one of her stamps.  The border stamp and the leaves are from Designs By Ryn (love this ladies stamps).
Anyway - I'm hoping now that I have got something made I will manage to continue doing a little each day - well that's the plan - will see what happens!!
Have a great weekend!!


  1. Hey Donna, I know how you feel. I've been having a bit of a creative lull lately as well. Lots of other things going on and there's only so much energy to go around.
    Well despite not feeling so into art mode you created an AWESOME piece! I am especially drawn to the messy background that you created and the way that you coloured and cut out the leaves (very creative of you to add the leaves as wings/arms on the girl)Absolutely love the paint splatter with the subtle hint of Kelp.
    Thanks once again for sharing your work with me and for adding a link to my site on your post :)
    All the best!

  2. Beautiful BG and I'm loving how you used the ferns as wings, Donna!

  3. Beautiful Journal page, love the colours and image & texture combinations.

  4. Stunning! Love that use of colours and those ferns really zing - well done - for someone who says she doesn't have an ounce of creativity at the moment you certainly have got more creativity in your little finger than I have in my whole body!! Great! xx
