        Welcome to the Artistic Outpost blog hop. I am so excited to share another page from my Expeditions Art Journal. I used my Paris Exposition stamp plate to embellish and my Fashion Flapper plate for the background. I used Distress Paints to add color and of course gesso.

Tag Trio

    I made a set of tags for Artistic Outpost. Loving these images. I made them the focal point of my tags. Here are a few close-ups.

       Good Morning! I have another page to share in my new ‘Expeditions’ art journal. I bought a collage sheet of siblings several years ago and I think I might finally be able to put it to use. I love this image. My background is book paper over a brown paper bag. Lots of gesso, paints and stamping along with layers of ephemera finish off the page. I was able to use up a lot of scraps! Wo-hoo!
  

Jazz Tag

     Here is a tag for Artistic Outpost using the Fashion Flappers plate. I used some scraps and ephemera in my background as well as paints and stamping. I thought a bit of Stickles would help it look more jazzy.
     Life is getting crazy as my hubby just got a job transfer to Pennsylvania. We are seperated until our house sells and/ or the school year ends. Everything is a bit hecktic in the midst of packing and the daily routine. I will be trying my best to post consistantly. Thanks for sticking with me!

    I have started another art journal!! It is entitled Expeditions. So far my pages are mainlyof vintage children. I am imagining all the adventures that children have been through, both alone and with siblings.I showed the completed Cover that I made for last months I Am Roses challenge. The format is a flip book. Unusual sized pages appeal to me for some reason.
      I had lots of fun playing around with my background. I used some forgotten pieces of ephemera, neglected  stamps and a photo I had already printed. I am still working on using up my stash.
     Hope you can find time to craft today.

    I made this mail art using some of my favorite envelopes. They better be a favorite because I bought them in bulk. I used my Artistic Outpost stamps from the Flapper Fashion plate.

The beautiful flowers are from I Am Roses. I used a few sunflowers, white gardenia petals and mini roses.

    I added lots of paint, gesso and layers of paper to add more interest. And of course, I love dripped paint.

Past Vibes Cover

   Here is my completed cover! This is my first art journal and I know it won’t be my last. I have already started pages in my next journal. I am just trying to come up with a name for it.

     More details. I used a lot of Distress paint, Prima canvas, flowers and left over ephemera.

     Happy crafting!
