Everything is Wonderful Now

I created this Art Journal page using lots of stencils and color sprays and also some texture paste and paints. The large honeycomb stencil is one of my favorites. 


I recently purchased the rose stencil and love how it turned out with the texture paste, paints and markers.

I had a hard time taking close up pictures of the left page with the sentiment "everything is wonderful now". The pages are pretty sparkly because I applied a glitter spray on them.


I have created several more Art Journal pages and will share more this week.
Just a week in a half from now I will be on an art cruise and am so excited!!! I won't have internet access while I'm on the ship, so I am trying to get some posts done and scheduled to post while I'm gone. I will be taking a couple of classes on the cruise and will share those projects when I return!!! I'll be back in the next day or so to share those Art Journal pages. Until then...
Hugs and Happy Craftin'!!

Art Journal

A month or so ago I jumped on the Art Journal bandwagon and am having so much fun creating pages! This is the front cover of my Art Journal and it is has a lot of texture. I L-O-V-E texture!! 



The title "Such is Life" is one of my favorite sayings. I used lots of stencils, texture paste and color sprays and paints on the cover.


I love the butterfly stencil that I used here. I applied texture paste with the stencil and then colored with colored pencils and markers. I have also completed several pages in this Art Journal and will share those over the next couple of days,
Next week I will be traveling to Florida to stay with some new friends for a few days and then will be hopping on an art cruise to Cozumel!! I have never been on a cruise and I am so excited!! I will be meeting lots of new artsy friends and taking a couple of classes as well :) Have you ever been on a cruise? Do you have any pointers for a newbie? I would love to hear them!!
That's all from me tonight. Until next time,,,
Hugs and Happy Craftin'!!
