a quick art journal share and THE WINNER...

I wanted to pop in for a quickie hello…

I am TOTALLY flipping ADDICTED 
to this larger art journal size…

OMG…seriously…
I'm up at 4:30am…too excited to sleep…

I LOVE new stuff…don't we all?

hello new shoes…
(I couldn't pass them up, sorry Rick)…
onlineshoes.com is EVIL...

but…since I started this journal I am hooking up with tons of my favorite older stamps
I'm using them in new ways &  refreshing them with new stamps, inks, stencils, tim's remnant rubs & tissue tapes

I'm keeping these pages pretty flat, so that's been a challenge, but I'm loving it…it blows the cobwebs out & it makes me think about options & possibilities...
all the products listed above are perfect for adding detail, but not bulk...

I'm going back to some basics too…
lots of masking
so simple, yet so effective…
and perfect for art journals...

SHE is stamped on CFA that's covered with vintage text…
same with the flowers…

I do believe that orange blossom archival coordinates with everything...

the clearly for art (CFA) adds just a bit of dimension & I like that it's simple to cut out the stamped image or die cut whatever you need…

I have completed 10 LARGE pages since my last post…

I told you…ADDICTED!

I have always really LOVED mini, but this large size
has stolen my heart...

here's one of the 10...



this page was really fun & is another mixed media page…

and speaking of FUN…

my friend Paula Cheney has a GREAT tutorial up on her blog…

she shows how to make fabulous gift tags, using my translucent embossing paste, tim's stencil & dry stickles platinum glitter

these could easily be mass produced, to make your gifts extra special...

leave her some LOVE & tell her HI from me!

time for the drumroll...

CONGRATS!

I have a new stamp set headed to…

It was so fun learning all those random facts a about you Wendy, my husband has no sense of direction either, we lived in Virginia for four years and he still didn't know how to get to the mall. Lol
Thanks again for the chance to win some stamps, I absolutely love your journal page.

it's my understanding that desserts have no calories on holidays…
I THINK that's what I was told...

yes…back to the studio 

to…
