Dream, Dance & Play...

I've finished the title page for my Art Journalista Journal, and I'm excited to share it with you!  One thing I'm really loving about this workshop, is the freedom to create in my own way.  I am learning so much from Teresa; but I still feel like my pages are completely my own, and I LOVE that!  That is an awesome teaching skill if you ask me!

Anyways, here's my title page...

The photo of the bird is one that I took in the neighborhood.  The image of the dog is from Best Friends magazine (my favorite source for animal photos!!!)  The other materials used include acrylic paint, Studio Calico ampersand stencil, Mr. Huey Perfect Plum mist, China marker, Pitt and Sharpie markers, alphabet stamps from Pink Paislee, and Alphabet stickers from the hardware store (intended for labeling your mailbox, I think), and my current love - sequins!

I created a little pocket on the inside cover, by sewing on a piece of Hambly transparency.

I hope your weekend is full of inspiration and creativity!  Thanks so much for visiting and I will see you again soon!
