The Cabin

       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.
