Pages of my Art Journal


I originally got the idea for this Art Journal from the Fiskateers website at www.fiskateers.com It was a challenge that Cheryl, one of the lead Fiskateers came up with. She even came up with the prompts to get everybody started thinking about the next few years. I made mine out of a paper CD case.

Friday evening


On Friday evening, a group of girls and I went to a girl friends house and we made Close To My Heart magnetic closure boxes. I think we laughed and talked more crafted!

Fall Project


I decided that a tin that I couldn't decide what to do with and turn it into a Fall decoration. I used microbeads from Penny Wise Arts around the edge of the lid. Since I didn't have any sticky back canvas, which seems to be the newest thing, I used a glossy sticker sheet instead.

Vacation!!




So glad to be home!! I love to get away but coming home is nice too!! These birds were everywhere! We never saw any seagulls, which I thought was funny considering we were on the ocean! I see more seagulls at home...we call them parking lot gulls. Anyway, the scenery was just amazing. The alligator sign was definitely not anything that we see around home! Never did see an alligator but was told they were around.

Artsylicious Book










These are pictures of the Artsylicious book I made. Artsylicious is a line from Chatterbox. I decided to fill my book with some of my favorite quotes and sayings. Some are stamped and some are done on the computer. There are more pages than just these few but for the sake of saving space, those were the only ones I posted.

Necklace

This necklace I made using a really large washer. I covered the washer with paper, white rub-ons and a rhinestone embellishment. Then I used UTEE on it to protect it.

Purse



I made this 'purse' from a $1 find at Michaels. I use it to store my micron pens I use for my Zentangle.

Cats




I created this by embossing the main image. It says, 'The cat could very well be man's best friend but would never stop to admitting it.' I did the border using Zentangle techniques and matted it with a piece of black cardstock that I used one of the new Fiskars corner-border combination punches to create.

This was such an easy and fun project! I saw this on Fiskars TV. It's a 12 x 12 piece of card stock folded and cut to turn into this super cute mini album!! Just be sure not to use thick embelishments or it won't fold closed very well.

The New Year!

OK! January was purging month. I went thru every drawer and closet! Every inch of this house! There is going to be one big garage sale this spring! Not to mention all that was just thrown out. My garbage men must have thought we were moving!

Anyway, February is scrapbooking month for me!! I've already begun to get my photos ready! Next week, I'm off to the craft store and lunch with my mom! She got me started making jewelry now! Another fun craft to add to the list.
