Inspiration Wednesday 2015 #1 (2nd attempt)

Good morning everyone! 

I have been having so much fun with 
that I decided to double up! 
The class is every other week so I am going to try to do one every week
changing it up a little along the way
(even if it's just a color change)!

This is my 1st week,
2nd attempt...

I used blue & aqua this time
I also added a few more words

I used two different "Create" stamps 
as well as a flower to go along with the flower stencil I used.

I don't have a numbers stencil so I used glittery stickers and outlined them with a pen!

Here is my second art journal, 
I used an old pair of jeans to make it easy on myself!
No need to sew,
I'm going to leave the edges to fray over time!

My second page, 1st attempt is HERE

Thanks for stopping by,
I appreciate your visit!

Sweet sparkling card...

Good morning!

I made this card simply because I love these images from the 
Gecko Galz freebie collage set I got in the Newsletter.

Of course there was also the added bonus of being able to use another one of Heather's Damask papers!
I think the images and the paper go quite well together, don't you think so too?

The crochet flower I made a while back...I sprayed it with a couple different sprays to get the color I wanted, then topped it with a metal flower and mini mulberry that I inked the edges on.

Below are a couple shots of the edges...
my photo attempt to let you see that I put random swirls of glue down and added some goldenrod glitter on!

January birds card

Good morning everyone!
I hope you all had a great weekend!

My card today...

The background paper is from 
My Artistic Adventures Damask digi paper collection
and the image is from
Gecko Galz...the January Newsletter freebie!

I used black cardstock to make the card and mat my images.
I also mounted the die cut, from my Cameo, and fussy cut around that!

The bird images were added with pop dots and I added a bit of grey & white twine around the larger image. 

Below is a picture of the inside of my card...

Inspiration Wednesday #2

Good morning everyone!

I have another Art Journal project to share today
inspired by

This one is a second attempt!
Attempt #1 was an epic fail in my eyes! 

After a couple things were glued down 
I covered it all back up with bunch of gesso and started again!
I'm so happy I did that because I am so much happier with it this way!

Collage is something that I usually shy away from
I have a hard time covering things up!

I guess after my failed attempt doing the collage got a little easier.

The picture below may be my favorite part of these pages.
I love the layers and texture as well as the color!

I'm so happy I decided to join in this Art Journal Inspirational fun!
Always nice to step outside of your box!

Thanks for stopping by!
Hope you're having a great weekend!
