You Gotta Be Bold...

I found a great book at the library used book store the other day. I will have to get out my Goo-Be-Gone to get the stickers off, but then it will make an awesome art journal! I love the picture on the front, and there are illustrations on the inside too. Check it out...
And I finished another circle journal layout! This one is for my album. Theme is "Scrap a Song Lyric and Include a Photo of Yourself." I had so much fun with this one!

The background paper is white cardstock painted with acrylic paint. I used the current Next Step technique of shadowing with charcoal again on this layout (around the photo). Other materials used include dictionary paper, Jenni Bowlin vintage black star paper, Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday Alpha paper, Autumn Leaves Whirligig buttons, Stampin Up Newsprint Alpha stamps and a black sharpie.

Now I've got a big mess to clean up in the scraproom! I will be back tomorrow with another update. I hope your weekend is going well! I wish you a wonderful Sunday!

Great book for an art journal! Love all the circle journal pages that you have revealed lately - there will be some very lucky recipients!
You have developed such a cool and colorful art journaling style - uniquely your own and your pagea are so full of energy. I have gotten away from art journaling some and moved more into watercolor painting, but the collage couture class is a fun reminder and expansion of the techniques we learned in Dina Wakley's class. Are you going to sign up for her new class this summer?

What a great find, Michelle.

Your layout is definitely bold. I love that song and you have portrayed it so well. I hope you get some really nice layouts from your swap.

What a great LO! So interesting and fresh. Love how you did the charcoal pencil. It is so subtle, yet adds so much depth. Great job!
