Art journaling

 Hello Ladies:)

I'm back with an update on mine Art Journaling pages, I have made 2 more pages.
My first page  was for Soul Scrapper's  April's Art Journal challenge and font technique.
For some reason, I just don't like my hand writing. To me it's too sloppy. Here is my page.

Renewal: Require opening yourself up to new ways of
thinking and feelings.
 
My next page took me a month to finish. It turn out great, I liked the results.

                    
                                   Here are my steps I did on this Technique


1:) I layer it with Drywall Tape.
2:) Then I added my gesso over the entire page,
then I let dry over night, to make sure it was completely dry.
3:) Then I sprayed it down with water  so it was dripping wet.
I got out my acrylic paints, bottom I did orange and top I did yellow
towards the middle I blended it together. Still keeping it wet, so paints
moved easy I wanted a thin layer. Again let it dry.
4:) I got some stencils and texture paste and my flowers or you call them
sun burst. Again another drying process.
5:)  I added black soft charcoal  around the flowers and added some black ink on the
flowers.
6:) I add green ink  of the bottom of the page again used water to make it run down the page, I also add some red ink too.
7:) Since the texture of the page was too rough to write on I just printed my quote  out and colored it with oil pastels.

                              Stacy H-W's Stash 

                     Challenge this month is this beautiful 
                                  sketch from Pagemaps.


                                

When I was doing this Layout I was thinking of Spring. So I was digging thru my photos and came up with this lovely photo of Apple Blossoms.
Enjoy the fresh smell of Spring. Can you smell that  sweetness!!

Spring has Blossomed.

                         My next challenge come from Jessica over at    http://sketchesforyou.ning.com/ 
 Her challenge this month is to create a page using 3 or more tags on your LO.
Here I used 6 tags, 3 of the tags I did embossing, and the other 3 I left blanks.
I also added a blue butterfly to one of my tags , I even added pinks stripe washi
tape to brighten the page. If you notice my great niece has a pink head band on.

As I was reading all the requirements I forgot to add my journaling, oh well.

April's Fool Day A little Late.

As we know the old saying of "April Showers brings May Flowers". Well not here in Wisconsin. We still have those dirty looking snow hills.

This is just a few hills of snow that I have left on my property. But yet there is still hope. On the other of my house we a little bit of Spring. Did I say Spring, yes here we see some new growth of my Tulips. These photos were taken today April 5, 2013.

So as you see, I still have Winter and yet a taste of Spring. 2 Seasons at once how lucky can I get.

Fleetwood Mac 'Go Your Own Way' Lyrics
Loving you
Isn't the right thing to do
How can I
Ever change things that I feel?
If I could
Maybe I'd give you my world
How can I
When you won't take it from me
