Distress Resist Spray Distress Oxide and Dylusions Quote Mini “Sassy” Journal Page

Good Afternoon,

It is Wednesday which means it’s time for another art journal page share. This week I worked once more in my mini journal. The products I used to make this piece were Canson watercolor paper, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Resist Spray, Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Oxides, The Tim Holtz idea-ology Paper Dolls, and the Dylusions “Say it how it is” stamp set. I had a great time with this page. It was quick and easy and I got to play with the new resist spray.

Here is a link to my full video on my youtube channel:

Back to it after an extended birthday break

Back to it after an extended birthday break

Hello!

I am back! I turned 35 last week, and after a long weekend of relaxation, I decided to continue that downtime for the remainder of the week. I’ve had a good long rest; I am recharged, and ready to start sharing again.

So, what did I do for my birthday, well I went to the movies of course. I am a huge Marvel fan so I went to see the Avengers. Afterward, I went to a lovely dinner at P.F. Chang with my hubby. I spent the remainder of my weekend just keeping a low profile. I played with the kids (cats) and worked on my stamping inventory, and just enjoyed my birthday presents.

As I start a new chapter of my life though I feel it is time I need to reevaluate my priorities. One of those is making time for me. I want to work on my health (fitness) and do a little more art for me. So I may duck off for a week here or there, and you won’t hear from me, but I”ll be back. Just taking some of that recharge time.

As for birthday presents, well my husband rocks. I received a dozen beautiful roses, the complete line of new Dylusions Shimmer Sprays and the new Dina Wakley metallics. Be sure to stay tuned. The shimmer sprays will be showing up on my YouTube channel. Along with some of the other stamps and treats I received.

Here are some photos from my long weekend.

Holly was really loving my hair product. She was very cuddly.

New Shimmer Sprays!! EEEK!

New Dina Wakley metallic paint tubes!

As always, so happy you are here! Take a peek around, find some inspiration and I’ll talk to you soon.

May 2018 Mission Inspiration Challenge

May 2018 Mission Inspiration Challenge

Hello again,

Its art journal Wednesday, that halfway point in the week when we can all use a little creative boost. This week the page I am featuring comes from a monthly challenge. This is the May 2018 Mission Inspiration challenge from the facebook group by Mike Deakin.

I will admit this month’s colors and prompts kind of threw me, I don’t love the page, but I have come to mutual respect with it. This was a challenge that took me out of my color and comfort zone and made me try new things.

I share all my trials and findings in my youtube video:

Below are some stills for you:

The beauty of these monthly challenges is to do what it says, challenge yourself, push yourself. When you push your boundaries that is how you grow as an artist and crafter.
I hope this page will give you some inspiration on this Wednesday and happy journaling.

Cinco de Mayo and early birthday weekend in St. Augustine, FL

Cinco de Mayo and early birthday weekend in St. Augustine, FL

Hello There,

This weekend my husband and I took a trip up to St. Augustine to meet friends for lunch and just to have a nice break and day out. We love St Augustine because of the quaintness of the historic town and all the art inspiration around it.

It turned out to be a lovely day with a nice breeze which in Florida nearing summer is a blessing. Some of the highlights were, of course, lunch at the Columbia restaurant with our friends, a trip to my favorite store Earthbound Trading Co. and a necklace purchase (early birthday present)

Below are photos I snapped to remember our day. I hope some of them bring you inspiration and a peek into my world as you start a new work week:

Distress Resist Spray Distress Oxide “Sister” Art Tag

Distress Resist Spray Distress Oxide “Sister” Art Tag

Hello and Happy Saturday! For today’s video release, I wanted to have another play with tags. After the cat tag I did last weekend I am starting to develop a love of art journal tags. This week I used a 3″ x 6″ manilla tag from “The Paper Studio” I got in one of my clearance hauls. I added a layer of distress oxide and was able to play with the new Tim Holtz distress resist spray. It was a lot of fun. For my assemblage pieces, I chose some of the Tim Holtz paper dolls, quote chips, and ephemera bits. Trying to use up that stash of supplies….so I can get new ones.

Here is a link so you can watch my process on my youtube channel: Sister Art Tag

Here are some stills:

I hope this will inspire you and give you some ideas for using up your own stash of goodies. Happy Crafting!
