    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.

     Happy crafting!

     More layouts in my Vintage Vibes Art Journal. I used some of my new Lynne Perrella stamps from PaperArtsy. Well, they were new months ago but I finally got around to playing.

image

    My background was made using a Tim Holtz technique. I went over it in places with gesso and a brick stamp. Flowers are from I Am Roses. I used lots of bright colors in a mix of paint and sprays.
    Can’t believe that the week is almost over. Enjoy!

      Welcome! It is time again for another challenge over at the I Am Roses challenge Blog. I chose the colors green and white for the theme of my project. My image is by Lynne Perrella. I made this flip book to be my new art journal.

     I can’t wait to start using it. I love unusual sized books. Here is the back of the book.

      Here is another layout in my Past Vibes art journal.  I have had these vintage photos for a while and have finally used them. The texture in my background was from a Crafter’s Workshop stencil.

image

       The patterned paper is by K & Co. I painted over top with Distress Paints and gesso.

    I completed my second page in my layout inspired by Liz Borer over at Paper Artsy. Liz’s backgrounds are amazing. Her projects this week were very inspiring. Check her out.

image

    The background on this page was made with a stencil, molding paste, paints and inks. I layered these gorgeous Lynne Perrella stamps after coloring them with Distress Markers. I hope you like it. Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

   This is my first art journal page for the Challenge by Liz Borer over at Paper Artsy. I was inspired by the swirls using molding paste in her background on her first project. I love my Lynne Perrella stamps so of course they are the focal point. I used some canvas resist pieces and flowers to embellish. Hopefully I’ll have my last page up by tomorrow.

   Thank you for stopping and to all of my new followers.

    Oh happy day. It’s Friday! Hope you are ready for the weekend. I am sharing some more from my Past Vibes journal. I made this set of pages a while ago but have not shown them because they are not my favorite. I am finally ready to share because I need content to post. As I shared before, craft time has been scarce as of late. I am hoping it will pick up once my little starts school again.

     Thank you for stopping by.

    Just a new layout to share from my Past Vibes journal. I used a photo of several female generations. I thought it would be perfect for my new Lost Coast Designs ‘hat’ stamps. I thought they would add a playful spin to the photo.

    Thank you to my new followers and hope you all enjoy your evening.

    I may have mentioned it before but I love the art & culture of the Ancient Egyptians. I have struggled getting creative lately. It seems like all I want to do is art journal. I have had these stamps for several years now and only used them once. I dug them out the other day and had me some play time.

image

    My background is a mixture of paints and molding paste. I gold embossed hieroglyphics throughout my background. I spent a lot of time painting the details on each stamp. I was loving the background so it was hard for me to cover it up but I was able to let most of it show through. Have a great night.

      A few pages I made using the Boardwalk stamp plate by Artistic Outpost. I used sprays and gesso for my background.

image

    I stamped the shells on some painted hexagon chippies and put down some lace and such in the background. My bathing beauty image was stamped on tissue paper and mod podged onto kraft paper.
   Check out this new vintage style stamp set.

Just another layout in my ‘Past Vibes’ art journal to play along with this months I Am Roses Challenge. The challenge is to journal using flat flowers. The flowers I used were ZQP23 & PS-15.

image

    I started off by covering my kraft paper with scraps of leftover Prima paper and bits of lace, tissue tape, masking tape and burlap. I then used my palette knife to spread a layer of gesso over the background.

image

I then added my flowers and more background elements.

image

Before adding my photos I used Distress reinkers to drip some ink all over the page. A new technique I am trying out and really like it.

image

Well, thats it for today. Have a great Monday. Thank you for taking the time to stop. I appreciate that and all your comments.
