About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Mixed media journal pages

I made these journal pages today at a class at Mad for Markers at Rockdale


Painted pages with pink and purple paint - spread with credit cards.
Added white gesso over purple paint.
Stamped images all over.
Sponged words by Dr Seus with distress ink, cut out, layered onto black card, cut out and pasted onto pages.  Drew around with white pen.
Sponged with distress ink picture drawn by my 2nd grand daughter Emily and photo of Emily, layered onto black card and onto page and drew around with white pen.
Added a few finger prints.
Wrote out the other sentiments and stamped One of a kind.
Added butterfly and white sqiggles.

We invite you to join the Mad for Markers facebook group and join in the progressive freebie challenge.

  4. I don't think I've seen that Dr. Seuss quote before, but it certainly fits. It's a beautiful spread with two of my favorite colors. You created a lovely AJJ story with your granddaughter's help.
