Be Bold Art Journal Spread

Here's another spread in Lin's art journal.  I believe the sentiment on this page.  Never be regular!  It's boring! The background is all spray inks and gesso - many layers.  Vintage ledger pages were used as part of the background. The stencil is from Stencil Girl.  The stamps are all from Dylusions. I colored in the women with various sparkly markers.  Thanks for coming by my blog!

March Easter/Spring Tag Swap

The March swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group is an Easter/Spring themed tag swap.  The girl image is from Hidden Vintage Studios.  The butterfly, trims and Victorian scrap are available at Collage Stuff.  The background is vintage text painted with a dark yellow paint.  I stamped a text stamp with plum ink and the circles are made with plum ink.  I printed the purple checks off on my computer and trimmed them down.  Elements are outlined with a couple of different black pens. Thanks for coming by my blog!

Embrace Imperfection Art Journal Spread

This is a spread in my Dylusions small art journal.  I'm almost at the end of the journal, making it hard to photograph.  I used a gelli print for the backgrounds.  Since the background gelli print is so busy, I broke it up with Japanese vocabulary cards and vintage Flinch game cards.  I used Dina Wakley stamps, a Donna Downey stencil, washi tape, a Tim Holtz stamp and sticker.  Thanks for coming by my blog!

Use Your Wings Art Journal Spread

This spread is done in my small Dylusions art journal.  I'm almost at the end of it making it hard to photograph.  I used a couple of gelli prints done on old book pages for the backgrounds. I added some modeling paste and spray inks.  All of the stencils used are Stencil Girl stencils.  I added the white dots with a Posca paint pen.  I cut words out of an old book to apply to the birds. "Use your wings" is a Tim Holtz sticker.  Thanks for coming by my blog!
