Art Journal Television

My blog and crafting have been neglected over the last few weeks due to a combination of holiday, work and lots of sun in Scotland. We were away over Easter weekend and had no internet connection... since then it has been sunny in Scotland (quite rare to get a prolonged sunny spell) and I have been working hard painting fence panels, building rockeries and developing the now not so muddy slope (more on that later this week). I was also a little behind with my journal so had a happy afternoon catching up and playing. This prompt  was on the theme of television.
The sky control is in the photo as it has revolutionized the way we watch and interact with our box in the corner of the room. Series links, fast forward and other features make us in control of what we watch and as result I watch less television but more of what I like.

We were asked to use tv listings as a background so I had to print one as did not have a newspaper as I tend to get most of my news through digital media. I used cardboard waste from embellishments to spray dylusions inks in a frame and then I used a plastic card to spread white dylusions paint through the squares. I was thinking about TV being a box and making us square eyed.
I then used the mini diamond stamp from Tim Holtz to create a border and the letters TV and the mini bird clouds to create distortion on some of the televisions.

Finally I added my journalling about the best ever TV series being the Wire, how I stopped watching soaps to get more me time, watching the daleks in black and white and the fact that Lens Guy and I didn't own a TV the first two years we were together.
