Art Journaling again....Camera Page

I worked on this page today. My BFF Jeanne sent me these super cool canvas/chipboard Camera stickers and I had to use them......ALL OF THEM! Thank you Jeanne for sharing with me. The cameras were my jumping off point.

I didn't really know where to go after that so I grabbed my new goodies aka Gelatos by Faber-Castell. I got them at Jo-Ann's with 40% and 50% off coupons. I love a good discount.
The back of the flap is one of my favorite parts of this page. I loooooooove how the alcohol inks dripped and bled, I tried to recreate it on the rest of the background and it just didn't turn out as well. I still love it though :)
Here is a closeup to show the dimension of the canvas stickers. I love these! I need to find or create other shapes in this stuff.
This last photo is just a close up of the quote. I thought it worked perfectly. 
Thanks for stopping by to take a look. I hope you have a fantastic day.
Hugs, Dawn

I've been Art Journaling...

Here are couple of my most recent pages.
This first one I call.....Fly.
I found that big wooden bird at Michaels and painted it Black and just hot glued it to that little flap. It's my favorite part of this page.

This is the second page. Not my favorite art journal page, but at least I finished it and learned some things along the way. It's what Donna Downey would call foward motion. If you like to art journal and haven't ever heard of Donna Downey, head over to her site and watch her Inspiration Wednesday Videos. They are awesome. She is my artistic hero.

Create Art

I found these cute frames at Goodwill for .99 each! I thought they were cute, even if they are plastic. I took the art out of each frame, gesso'ed each panel and painted the art you see here. I love dandelions, and these match the comforter on my bed. Learning to paint is really fun! Thanks for taking a look :)

Have a fantastic day!! Hugs, Dawn
