Journaling Coffee and Tea

I started these journal pages last month.  I am still working on filling my 115 year old art journal with a lot of different pages, inspiration and learned techniques.

My crafty bestie Paradise Lost and I have been having crafty playdates.  She is a mixed media artist and journaler.  I have been learning a lot, asking a lot and trying a lot with her awesome encouragement.  We both made pages using the same dies and make sure to check out how different they look.

I picked up the Cling Mount Foam Stamps when I was road trippin' to Kelowna BC just for these pages.

How cute did this turn out!

I used a variety of stencils  and distress inks to add texture to each cup.

ACK... Juila has the Paper Dolls lucky her!  We are always sharing supplies and she was nice enough to let me use some.

The pages are gesso with distress crayons and stenciling.  You can still see the words here and there.

Mmmm ready for a hot beverage.

  Thanks to Juila for all the fun crafting dates... more to come!   I love to be able to create for fun!  Hope you like and thanks for peeking!

Don't forget to see Juila's pages and leave her some love... click HERE.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
