No Time! Art Journal to the Rescue

I'm hoping to be able to have art for you this week but I may not.
Tax season is here and I'm swamped at work.
Art journals are the easiest way for me to create art when I don't have a lot of time.
I decided to play with another abstract piece.
You can tell my mood.
I think the circles are the never ending piles of tax returns I have to finish.

That's it for now.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I'm Addicted

I usually never use gold.
Lately I've been using it on everything.
But the one thing I've been using even more

I'm addicted.
Stay tuned!

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

A quick art journal page to show you all.
This page already had a background.
It was in my pile of pages I don't like.
So I used circle masks that I created and Doodling Daisy Balzer Bits from The Crafter's Workshop and put them on top of the page.
Inside of using a sponge and paint, I used Liquitex Spray Paint in white over the masks.
I used white paint with the Today Framed Fragment and outlined it with black marker.
The rest is just scraps of paper from my scraps box.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Playing with New Stencils from The Crafter's Workshop!

My favorite place to play with new stencils is in my art journals.
The 2015 stencils are my favorite.
You can see them all HERE and HERE.

My supplies with links:


Acrylic Paints:

Texture Spray:

I used the stencils with gray and black acrylic inks to create the background.
Then with the Parasol stencil I used the texture spray through it.

Here is a close up of the texture spray.
It's gives great texture to the page.
It also will give you a great resist with other inks.
Make sure you clean your stencil right away.
This dries fast and you don't want to leave it on your stencil.

I added the Bay Branches and Grow to the page in green and outlined it with a white pen.

Here is another close up of the texture spray and the branches.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Flowers and Butterflies

I have a post on The Crafter's Workshop where I made a card with new stencils.
It was a lot of fun to make.

You can see how I created the card by clicking HERE.

The 2015 stencils by The Crafter's Workshop I think are my favorite.
