Art journaling!!!

Okay, so those of you who know me know that I LOVE learning new things--especially about crafting.  And so I'm always super excited when the lovely Clare from Miscanthus Crafts does a new art journaling video!!! And this time she even let me know about it--THANK YOU, Clare! :)  Of course I watched it immediately and then made a page!  You can check out the fabulous video tutorial HERE.  I hope you do!

Here's my page~


For these fabulous challenges~

So, I could tell you the process I went through to create this, but Clare has already done so in her video.  The only things different between her sample and mine are that I used a circle punch and that I used butterflies and a few more embellies on my page.  I like the shine. :)

Supplies I used: 1" circle, small butterfly and large butterfly punches (SU!), oil pastels, random dollar letter stamp sets (LOVE these for art journaling--thanks for the tip on those, Clare!), my absolute FAVORITE texture stamp set by Bo Bunny, sequins, liquid pearls by Ranger, glitter glue by Studio G, black Stazon ink, clear embossing powder & embossing gun.

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my creation!  I do believe that I will be giving this away as a present to a dear friend I've been thinking of lately.  What will you create?!  I hope you check out Clare's video and these other challenges and link up with me!  HUGS and happy stamping friends!

Love the bubble effect you've created for the background, and the sequins are so decorative and add some sparkle to this beautiful design!

What I love most about your page is that it doesn't look like everyone else's journal page. I get tired of seeing the same thing over and over and this page is gorgeous. Love the shades of blue the circles of sequins and the butterflies.

Thank you for sharing the link.
