Would you believe this started out as a clean and simple layout LOL ...I decided I would play along with the scrappy friends challenge...Rochelle Spears- her tic tac-toe and GCC (Brenda)- Sketch Challenge  and
Kelly's Word Challenge

 I used the bottom row journal card,wood and stamping  Rochelle Spears- her tic tac-toe
 I used the word Adventure Kelly's Word Challenge
 and of course I followed the sketch! GCC (Brenda)- Sketch Challenge

Late night Art Journaling

I know I don't share my Art Journal all that often but I've had a couple late nights the last couple of weeks and those seem to bring out my play time with my journal seems to calm me.

here I was on a circle kick...I tend to really like them..maybe because I can't cut a circle freehand to save my life!

 this one was inspired by a pin on pinterest, I saw then do this on a hand bag and thought it looked kind of cool so I had to give it a shot!
pinterest inspired

this last one I did the other night when I just couldn't sleep..I don't own many stencils but I try to use anything I can get my hands on LOL don't you just love my handmade journal..its so sad that its one page away from being I'll have to make a new one!

Girly Mini Album

I’ve been working hard on this little album, it’s about 5x5 well the inside pages are 5x5 LOL…I was watching video’s on youtube the other day and came across this lady that was making an album (well she called hers an art journal) anyway she made it out of all recycled items…so I thought what the heck I’ll give it a shot! The cover and inside pages are made from recycled cereal bar box’s (my favorite so there were plenty to choose from LOL) Let me tell you this little album is sturdy! I wanted to make it kind of girly hence the color and I also used some of my handmade flowers on the cover the pattern papers are from a DCWV stack my daughter had gotten me its once upon a time theme so there are plenty of embossed pieces, not sure you can see them in the pictures  …there is plenty of room for pictures and places for tags/journaling…I left a lot open so it can be customized since I really wasn’t she who to give it to yet or if I wanted to keep it myself...I thought I would also enter this is the Berry71blue challenge for their handmade flower challenge...the flowers on the cover are made by me!

well lets start by saying I tried a couple of the techniques from Scrap Africa for their latest challenge....Distressing with a Difference..I really wanted to try something I hadn't done before (so the coffee and tea were out).. I tried the stamping with bleach..yeah that didn't turn out so well but I am willing to try it again at some point LOL then I tried Vaseline for embossing or stamping I ended up making just a big mess...
So I decided to try distressing m,y papers with a cheese grater ( you had to see the look on my hubby's face when he saw me he just shook his head and walked away!) which you'll see in my layout.. the brown and white paper was done with the grater but the one under it was done with a nail file/emery board because it was just too thing and I mangled one piece already LOL
  I used the fabulous sketch from the Flying Unicorns Mojo Monday 
and used some handmade flowers (big green one is store bought) for the Berry71blue handmade flowers challenge

Enjoy the small stuff

So I've been thinking about the ARTastic challenge since it came out this month-inspiration this month comes from the Alice in Wonderland series of paintings by Charles Blackman. Criteria is anything goes but your photos must depict crazy antics, silliness or just having loads of fun. I was thinking something fun and very loud...I think I hit the nail on the head with this one LOL

 I was inspired by the yellow in the painting but couldn't resist the craziness that is Alice in wonderland..I used a picture of my daughter and her friend at the last Cosplay convention...look at them in all their silliness!
I also used the sketch from  Sketchabilities it just seemed to fit what I had in mind!

Å = year

             E = a stamp print

Now I would like to share a couple other projects that I've done this past week...
