Week 8 TDL project

I had a lot fun looking at the 5 artist's blogs that created this group. I took a little from each. I started on my flap first. I like to use envelopes so i can tuck my journaling in later. I added a quote from one of the artust blogs and stamped some images. (Side note: I am going to have to decide which stamps to take with me on our adventure. I have limited myself to a plastic tote and one bag. It's not going to much ... but that is part of the challenge. :-)
Then I did the other side with some punched out stamped scraps and credit card gesso smears, some spritz of glimmer mists. Found a pad of K & Co. Tags and used this for my 2nd flap. Used wasbi taper to put them together. Then i moved onto the actual page in my book. Decided to use the idea of pasting one of my catch all papers. Decided to add some patchwork flowers. Added some details and a few stamped images. Taped the flaps in place. Really happy with the way it turned out.

Week 7 TDL Project

The prompt for this week was to use a shape multiple times. I have so much scrap paper so I went with free hand circles. Painted the background with a credit card in pink & red. Glued down shapes and had fun outlining them. Using these colors is different for me. I like the way it turned out.

Week 6 Inspired art ...

I love this artist. HEARTFELT on facebook. Haven't found her on pinterest yet. But I had to do a page inspired by her art. I love the patchwork feeling and the quote says it all. My dreams are coming true ... stay tuned for where I end up ...
