My entry into Kym's CJ (UKSTAMPERS)

Bad news is 'I missed the posting deadline again'. Good news is by only 2 days !!!!!!

Here are pics of my entry into Kym's CJ which is entitled 'Objects of Desire'. My objects of desire were 'Precious Metals' and I featured Platinum, Gold & Silver in my artwork.

Must admit I was at a loss as to where to start once I had hatched the original idea of precious metal. I needed a colour which would enhance the metallic theme of the entry...........and plumped for ORANGE. Don't ask me why but I just did. I was pleased that it seemed to enhance the metal look especially the Gold.

Here it is...............................................................

I find crafters use a lot of acronyms for various activities. With that in mind just to clarify CJ stands for Circle Journal.

What a rush............just finalised my entry into the ukstampers first CJ. PHEW !! as always I left it to the very end to finish it, but on the whole I was pretty happy with the results. After all it was my first attempt at a CJ.

I realise I am working with a lot of very talented artists but 'what the heck', at least I am having a go !!!!! Anyway I took some pics of the CJ (in a hurry, of course), so the quality of photography is not that great so please bear with me. The title is 'ORIENT YOURSELF' which sort of speaks for itself........anything on an oriental theme.

Predominant colours are gold, red, black and orange. I have tried to capture some of the things I personally like about the orient.

Hope you approve. I would welcome any comments.

The CJ is on its way round the group now and I look forward to seeing everyones artwork in around 10 months time. I am sure it will be worth the wait. I now have my work cut out to complete entries in all other 9 journals. Thanks for looking.
