Art for Art's sake

Hi, I’m Chris and I’m probably better known as Pearshaped Chris - a name that connects me to my blog Pearshapedcrafting.  I am thrilled to be returning as hostess at AJJ!  My theme of 

‘Art For Art’s Sake’ 

is all about having some arty fun with techniques and art supplies (especially if you have some you don’t use so much). For my page I have used a paint peeling technique! I have also used some of my favourite stamps, which just happen to be art supplies!!  I am looking forward to seeing what you make, as of course, you choose what to journal about!

Have fun and please as always: Don't forget to take a look at our RULES .


Für diesen Monat begrüßen wir die inspirierende

'Kunst um der Kunst Willen'

heisst es diesen Monat und  es geht darum Spaß mit Techniken und Kunst/Bastelmaterialen zu haben (vor allem wenn du welche hast, die du nicht so oft benutzt :-). Für Ihre Seite hat Chris eine Farbschältechnik mit Vaseline genutzt
( Peeled Paint Technik ) und einige Ihrer Lieblingsstempel , die ja bekanntlich auch Bastel/Kunst -Material sind . 
 Wir freuen uns schon wieder sehr auf Deine Beiträge : Diesmal liegt es also ganz bei Dir welches Thema Du für Deine Seiten wählst . Es geht um den Spaß an der Technik und den Materialien und um die Freude am künstlerischen Schaffen an sich! Hab Spaß und vergiss bitte nicht dabei auch unsere REGELN zu beachten.
