My Journal Monday–Week 29

I’ve been out for a while–dealing with family, work and life in general.  I’ve finally had a little break in the clouds and took some time to feed my creative side.  I am doing a journal swap with a fine group of ladies I met a retreat a few years ago.  We have stayed in […]

My Journal Monday–Week 23

This week is fairly simple as I am preparing to head out of town for Artfest Rising!!  So excited!  I can hardly wait to get there and get going.  It is going to be a grand time indeed!   Here is what is on my desk to day for My Journal Monday–using another Stencil Girl Products’ […]

My Journal Monday–Week 22

Last week I posted some journal pages that I had created primarily with some of Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray inks and a Stencil Girl Products’ StencilClub (StencilGirl StencilClub) stencil set from November that was designed by Seth Apter : Unfortunately you could not really see one of the spray ink colors in this spread.  It is an iridescent that […]

My Journal Monday–Week 21

This week I had a lot of catching up to do at the house and several things planned away from home.  It’s been tough getting any time to be “arty” the last several days!  This week’s My Journal Monday was mostly playing with some new art supplies and a little letter tracing–a very cathartic activity indeed! 🙂 I […]

My Journal Monday–Week 15

[…]

Stencil Reuse

Yesterday I posted about getting all of the inky goodness out of your stencils that have been spayed with inks.  Today I want to talk about a second method of “reusing” your sprayed stencils. Below is an original spray of a stencil (Urban Outsiders Stencil designed by Seth Apter for StencilGirl Products) and three follow-up flip […]

DLP Week 1 Challenge

Finally!  I finally felt like doing something a little more substantial than mindlessly painting some backgrounds in my day planner!  I want to participate as much as possible in the Documented Life Project.  This year they are concentrating doing a full-sized journal page(s) as opposed to just creating a planner/journal.  They are all such great […]
