ARTFUL JOURNEYS - WEEK #12 All About Spring and NO FLOWERS
LOL no flowers and spring? I was at a lost and it is also still cold here in the "D". So I only made a tip-in to use in one of my AJ books.
I did get to use my spanking brand new stamp sets, one is "Ruby Rainbow" from dylusions and the other set is from Finnabair called "Don't forget to fly". I love both of these sets!!!
I use a box top with the flap. When I am done with it I add double sided tape to the flap so I can attach it to any AJ page. I laid some gesso down with a credit card I had seen many gals do it in the youtube video's I watch. I loved it went on a little smoother then using a brush. When I stamped my Ruby stamp down I decided to color her in with good old fashion gel pens, lol I have a few Copic pens/markers but to be honest, I don't like them.
WHY? Well you have to have special paper to make them look nice and I am not rich enough to pay this kind of paper for that pen/marker/. It is the same for the T.Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Inks I bough because everyone else did and little did I know you need some kind gloss paper and nope photo paper didn't cut it, so now I am stuck with over a $100 of those inks and can't really play with them like a pro.
I do plan on selling them in a facebook art swap group and use the money to get some more heavy acrylic paints maybe from Golden. Oh sorry to ramble back to my tip-in, I just wrote the quote and added a word with a black pen. Easy peasy!!!!
Now check out what I found in an old shoe box filled with vintage ribbons I had gotten from today's trip to my FAVORITE local thrift shop "Finders Keeper" Vintage seeds packs with the seeds in them. Some are from way back as 1953. Just too cool and I am so delighted!!!1
Thought I lost my MoJo somewhere this week, but it came back and started kicking butt I did five pages in one day! LOL
The fairy doll and tiny home are from a kit from Crowabout StudioB.
I was inspired by a video I seen on pinterest. The vintage gal came from Crafty Button Designs newest kit "Darkest Before The Dawn"
This has many piece's of happy mail I have gotten from some wonderful gals.
And this one I used some happy mail from Carol. I lost the envelope with the goodies as I was cleaning my art room last week.
Anyhooo about Carols envelope well I found it and used most of all the goodies in it!!!
Darkest Before The Dawn"

Well that is about it for now, I want to thank you for stopping by and please come again.
