ARTFUL JOURNEYS - WEEK # 8

Hello and welcome to week 8 of Artful Journeys  prompts.
"Things you think are beautiful – anything you like, but fill your pages with the stuff that really makes you happy!"

I started with gesso on my pages, then added some acrylic and wiped with baby wipe. I stamped using a blue ink. I had a napkin with pretty neon flowers, Once it dried I used sharpies to add dots and lace. I used a collage sheet doll from CBD . I added gems to her crown, outlined her with a pencil and pasted some eyes and a mouth from magazine cut out. Added black marker around them and added white marker pen dots. I also added black dots and stripes to her wings. I stamped the bird (from T. Holtz) and added a sticker crown to his head and dotted his eye with white fine tip marker. I Used another stencil and used a light purple ink. Used some word art stamps with black ink. A key stamp with maroon ink. The word art are also from magazine clippings, with purple sharpie and white pen dots. Last thing I did was use a deep dark purple gelato around the edge's of pages.



I just finished an altered book. I got to use some homemade molding paste I whipped up. Found the blog from Pinterest. HERE

I am in a napkin art swap so I used the birdie napkin I got from some happy mail over at. AMG's.


I added some beads and ribbons, sure hope my swap partner likes it. 

I made a "Tip-In" for another swap "City" and of course I did a Detroit one, Love my city!!!

Well that is it for now hope to see you soon.

A rare moment a "Selfie" .... LOL I hate having my photo taking.

I'm back!!!

My internet is back on, wooohoo!!! had some issues with the last company we used.
So for now I will show you some stuff I made while I was away.

Amber a.k.a Craft Button Designs has some new dollies!!!!

Here is a postcard I made for a swap I am in. I loved her so much I used her in a couple other projects.
 I made my own "Keep Calm" tickets!!

 These are some ATC's I sent out as RAK's.

And here is a "tip-in" I made for a friend.


You can not really see it, but the flowers I used my home-made model paste!
It feels all raised and gritty, love it!!! Now if you look on the lower right that was part of a beautiful tag I got for a swap. But when I got it, it was in a official post office envelope, saying "they care" the package was all ripped up and half of it was even gone. So I ripped up what was left of the envelope and glued the half tag down along with the post office envie too, lol 

I really love how this page came out and those are the eyes of the talented singer, "Pink"!!!

I hosted an altered CD swap over at AMG
The one on the right is going to my swap partner and the one on the left will be part of a birthday bash giveaway at AMG next month. Opps, I say that out loud? wink wink!
These ones I made for my besties at AMG, Betty, Melody and lovely Lynn. 



I got to use my new Liquitex Professional Acrylic Inks, wooohooo Love'em!

OHHHHH MY GOD, need I show you my Valentine gift from the hubby???
Everything I got was on sale or I used coupons!!! 
I got so much I have not even tried everything out yet, lol

Yeah I've been busy here are some more of my madness. Starting the next time I post I will tell you all what I used and sometimes how I used it.























Well I hope to see you soon, most likely Sunday when Artful Chicks has the new weekly prompt.

Week Three for Artful Journey.....PAINT IT BLUE

WOW already week three. Time is flying I swear. The prompt for this week is, "Paint it Blue" using only a palette knife/spatula or gift card to put down your blue paint. Since cobalt blue is my "FAVORITE" color this was a prompt I can sink my paint brush in.

Here is my take on this weeks prompt.

I put down many many blues with acrylic's and dylusion ink spray's I also seen this video while suffering for some inspiration.
I used some blue scrapbooking papers and old book pages.
I also used bubble wraps as a stamp, washi tapes, I used the ink sprays on the lace too.
I really love all the texture on this, the photo does it no justice. I did use gesso before I painted.

Have you checked out Betty's, Lynn, Terri and Melody's pages yet!! Simply awesomeness!!! 


Here are some other pages I made this week.
Used Acrylics, leaf stamps, a used paper towel I slopped up some dylusion ink's.
I also used a roller stamp that I got this week at Hobby Lobbys, My girl Lynn gave me a gift certificate and I got all these goodies.  The feather was also a gift from Lynn.
I got my inspiration from a graphic I seen floating on facebook.
I just printed it and cut it out. 

 Here are photos of the front and back of my latest altered book I finished this week.
The body is from a mask I made and had used many times before, I have a photo of it HERE. I used acrylics, strips of scrap papers, stencils, watercolors.

 Phone book pages, Acrylics, paint markers, sticker word art, alpha stencil, homemade spray inks, stamps, washi tape, circle die cuts from Lynn, The big word art is from the packing of dylusion art journal.  
My art table needs to be clean but naw it can wait. LOL


Well that is it for now, hope you enjoyed your stay and please come back again.

Now go get your ART on!
