Change is all around us. Most of it we can't control. Some we can. I have had a lot of both in my life lately and I'm learning to embrace it. As my life is taking a new direction I decided it was time to take the blog down a new path as well. I will be posting a travel journal of sorts to document our simple journeys and I would love to share it with you. Welcome!
This was my first time to video working on two pages at once.
I'm sure I've done it before, but never documented it.
I didn't know it was going to be two pages when I started.
I was simply playing with papers and paint.
When the background papers didn't seem to go together,
I decided to open the book and do two pages at the same time.
I used acrylic paints, spackling paste,
stamps, a 'found' stencil, brayer,
stabilo all pencil and water brush.
Since the background papers were so different, I decided to make
the pages as different as possible.
On this page I used Alex creamy crayons, Color Box chalk inks,
Zing embossing powder, Sharpie marker, harlequin stencil, stamps,
magazine image collage.
I've been busy making ICADs (Index Card A Day) for the
Daisy Yellow 2016 event, but so far haven't videoed any of them.
That's not to say I won't, but haven't yet.
I did get around to a for real journal page today, and had the camera running!
Below are some shots of the completed page.
Head over to my YouTube channel to see the process video.

In other news, I now have Instagram devoted to my
various arty projects. I would love to have you follow me!
Lately I've been doing more single pages than double spreads.
I've also been working in my big spiral journal.
So, I got out my smaller journal and spread it across both pages.
My inspiration was the flower tiles on the right and a lot of
little paper scraps on my work table.
When I came across the girl in matching colors it all came together.
I like this color combination. It seems kind of retro to me.
