I had a lot of fun playing in my scraproom last night! I think I have my SiSversary charms all figured out! Yeayyyyy! When I get a few done I will post them. Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
I got a chance to do The Next Step's first challenge tonight too. I had another art journal page that I started in Dina Wakely's class, and I thought it would be the perfect chance to try out the "painting using stamps as a guide" technique. I had already stamped the eye of horus on the page with this stamp:
so I painted over it with acrylic paint and a tiny brush. So fun! Other materials used on this page include spray ink, magazine images, black oil crayon, colored pencils, and a sharpie. The words are a reminder to myself...
I finally made my "H is for Happiness" page in my "Year in the Life of an Art Journal" project. For this I used my "Oh Happy Day" collection (designed by my awesome sister Renee), plus a paint chip, pom pom trim, a magazine image and a handmade yoyo.
One thing I've learned is that I can't expect anyone else to "make me happy." It's too much pressure to put on another person, plus it puts it out of my control. I choose to make my own happiness and I'm loving my choice.
The red dymo labeling is a quote by Melody Beattie that reads:
"each moment in time we have it all, even when we think we don't."
Tonight I am preparing for a 12-hour crop on Saturday. I'm not sure what I'm going to work on - I've got to figure it out quick because if I go to a crop unprepared, I end up getting absolutely nothing done. Either way it's good girl time tho!
Are you getting crafty this weekend? I'd love to hear what you are working on!
