Journal page and heart tag

Hello All and a warm welcome to Jumbled Crafts. Thank you for the comments on my new layout, I hope it is easy to read-please let me know if it isn't so that I can use another font. Thank you for calling in and for all the support you always give to me.

At Art Journal Journey the theme is architecture and I made my very first art project in Art Studio on my i-pad. I think it will take a long time to find out exactly what can be achieved with this programme but I am looking forward to learning.

This was a daytime picture of buildings and I changed it with effects.

My next project I made for a few blogs

I cut the fairly large heart shape from a cardboard box lid then used a stencil to add some texture. Next I made a spray with Distressed ink-Salty Ocean colour. The textured parts were then dabbed with the same colour on an ink pad and so was the outside of the label. The stamp was one I got in a bundle from dear Astrid. The little butterfly I have had a long time and I am not sure where that came from.
This is the stencil I used and it is dated 1997 and 50p. I got a few in a bag for 50p from a car boot sale. 

The challenges are

Country View Challenges where they would like texture

Stamps and Stencils where the theme is 3D and they also have a blog hop there so worth a visit for sure

Where the Heart is who also have stencils as their theme--saw this blog at Annie's xx

City Crafters want you to add some paste and I made mine from wood filler with olive oil in it

Have a wonderful day all

Love Chrissie xx

Wow - the alterations to the photo are amazing - it looks like a ghost town - beautiful but haunting. The textured heart is simply beautiful - love the soft warm blues in the whole post. Thanks so much for playing along at Country View Challenges.

Your blue heart really took my attention, I'm so impressed with the texture you have created on ordinary card, and the way you have made the message with the butterfly, it is stunning.
Very interested in your Architecture "painting" too, it looks wonderfully mysterious. I am going to investigate "Art Studio" right now!
