Some art journal pages :)

I have been wanting to try some art journaling, so I had to find a book/journal to paint in. I have this journal that I kept A list of some essential oils I bought years ago taking up only one page, so I decided to use that. Inside the front cover is a pocket and I had a pattern of how to make this rose doll. Well I am not so interested in making the doll now, but the picture of her I thought needed to go in the journal. So on the very first page I put her.

A few other pages.

Not sure if I am done with this page yet. I wanted to try some spray ink on a canvas type material.

Have a super week :)

Art journal page

I am lovin this art journal page. I have made a few in the past, but they seem forced to me, or I got the idea from someone( nothing wrong with that I do it all the time). This page I got the idea & just ran with it. I am new to art journaling and really lovin it so much!!!!!!

How I got the inspiration for this page came up in a funny way. I was downstairs in my "studio :)" creative space, I share my space with the treadmill, food storage, my paper craft/ scrapbooking/ paint/ art journal/ mixed media/ homemade skincare- cold press soap, sugar scrubs, lip balm/ yarn-fabric/ some Christmas decorations/ kids school stuff area. I have a window that faces south, so I get good light & I love to open the window and have fresh air coming in. And when I turn on our clothes dryer during the summer months I for sure need to open my window to help with air flow.

Says Fresh..............................................................

So I am downstairs and when I start up the dryer and my window is already open so I go to open up the window on the other side of the room to get extra good air flow going on. Hubby is at his computer desk doing his thing(working form home today) and I open up the window & pull back the blanket. He has this yucky red & blue plaid heavy blanket as his window covering. We have had that atrocity hanging there for almost 14 years now. I give him crap all the time about that ghastly thing, but he likes it, makes his side of the space dark. I think the boys in our home are vampires, hubby included. He knows it gets my goat, I hate that deep dark blanket, not to mention but I'm gonna this window is in the front of our home. NICE!!! Good thing I have lots of plants in front of the window to hide the blanket of doom!!!
Can you say HILLBILLY!

So I go and pull the blanket so the air can pass threw the window, ya know good air flow. My hubbys like yikes when I lighten up the room. What a dork!!! I was like ahhhhh the nice fresh air how awesome that fresh clean air.

Have a great weekend & get some fresh air!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First Canvas

I really like the mixed media projects Jana over at Createscrapbooks has been doing these days. I wanted to try a canvas like the one she has done. So I went to michaels and got a 3 pack of the 8x10 size for $3.99.

I had a blast playing with it. Love the freedom and the mess.I didn't have all the supplies Jana had so I used what I had or tried to make it. Like the punchinella she has, I don't have any, so I got a piece of duct tape and folded it in half and stuck the halfs together,then punched holes in it. Next time I would get a heavy card stock and punch holes with one of my circle punches(saw someone do that,after the fact lol).

Cade in the Bubbles

This past summer I have been taking all my old rolls of film into get developed or put on to cd. When I opened one of the picture envelopes I saw this picture of Cade, I started just laughing.Ya see Cades legs look the same 15 years later,when he stretches his legs, feet & toes out like that. Seeing that picture was to funny. I knew I just had to scrap it!!!

To freakin" cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My son's birth - 1 years old

I got the idea for these pages from Noell over at She did one like this of her son Aiden and I thought it was a great idea. I love how my pages turned out. I really liked using pictures that were already printed instead of editing them in photoshop. The look of Calvin 's and Cade's do show a more dated or nostalgic look. Calvin's printed in 88 & Cade's in 95. It is a blast to make these memories for yourself and children. Telling their story!!!




Happy Memory Making, Connie ;)
