OMG I could hardly believe my eyes when the Fedex guy dropped my Project 365 kit off on our doorstep today! It's so exciting to finally have it - Yeayyyyyyy! I can hardly wait to start putting my layouts together! It's perfect timing because I am going on a crop this weekend, so I will try to hold off til then. It's a perfect crop project! Anyhoo, in case you haven't seen what a Project 365 kit looks like, here it is in all its glory...There is a super cute 3-ring album, specially divided page protectors, daily journaling cards, day of the week stickers, a date stamp and more - in super cute colors and patterns! I even love the boxes that the cards came in - aren't they cool? Waiting til Saturday to put it together will be difficult!!!
In other news, I finished another art journal page for Dina's class and had so much fun! The idea behind this assignment was to teach us to stretch our ability to use layering on our pages. We were to create a page with at least ten layers on it. I used 18! HA! I never thought I could do that many, but it was fun! Here's a close up of each page, and then how they look together (remember to click on the picture to see more detail)...
Here are my layers in the order I added them to the page.
Gel transfer (didn't work out very well so I covered the image up - just used it for texture in the bottom left corner)
bubble wrap with spray ink
masked swirls with spray ink
monoprinted turquoise acrylic swirly things
photocopy of a photo
painted dictionary pieces
Stamped figure with Stazon ink
dots coming off figures hand and foot
teal oil crayon
more green spray ink and masking
white gel pen (in doodles)
lyric journal strips
OMG so fun - you could just keep going with this stuff forever!
Alrighty then - that's it for today, but I will be back again tomorrow with another update!
Have a wonderful Wednesday my friends!
