No Journaling Art Journal Pages

I did these pages in my
art journal following Paula's Ustream Saturday night...

I've got to say,
I believe I like these pages better than any other I've done... and all due to JournalArtista's tutelage.

The background is done
almost identically to hers... of course, my stamps and stencil are different. I used Skipping Stones Design's Timeless Textures stamp set and Crafters Workshop Chevron Arrows.

The butterfly was fussy
cut from a sheet of Kaiser Craft Butterflies from their Timeless collection. It's colored with Distress Inks. I applied the CW Mini Poppies with gesso. After drying, I brushed on a second coat. I "painted" them with Festive Berries, Aged Mahogany and Forest Green Distress Inks. Then I went over them with an S Faber-Castell Pitt pen... outlining and shading.

I was so totally happy
with the out come, that I didn't even want to do any journaling on it.

Coffee scoop with acrylic handle.

A few months back
our son started taking an interest in pen making, and asked my husband for some instruction. The scoop above and the pens below are a few of the items they've made...

Hummm... I think
we're going to need another dust mask.

Thanks for stopping by!
