January Art Journal Page Swap

I'm hosting another year of the art journal page swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group.  For January, my page is a vintage theme, with nature. The images are from Collage Stuff and Mischief Circus.  I used a variety of stencils with acrylic paints for the backgrounds.  Stamps from Tim Holtz and Rae Missagman were used in the backgrounds.  Some stamped images were heat embossed.  The white doilies, blank raffle tickets and computer punch cards are available at Collage Stuff.  Thanks for coming by to view my January art journal page.

happy place art journal page

Another art journal page.  Sometimes I think we look outside ourselves for our happiness.  It comes from within us and it's up to each of us to make our worlds happy places.  At least that's what I think.  I had fun making this page.  For texture, I included a napkin and floral fabric tape. I used lot of acrylic paints, some metallic paints too. Thanks for coming by my blog to see my "Happy Place" journal page!

Write Your Own Story Art Journal Page

I started out with this art journal page using cool blues, some browns and decided that was boring.  So out came the Dylusions pink to liven things up! The stencils are all from Stencil Girl.  The women images are from Prima Marketing.  Thanks for coming by my blog today!

Vintage Women ATC's

At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, we're swapping vintage women ATC's for the December swap.  I created a background on vintage text using acrylic paints and stencils.  I printed a Collage Stuff image as a transparency and applied the transparencies over various backgrounds.  The words are Tim Holtz stickers.  Thanks for coming by to see my ATC's!
