Book of Days...

Here's my latest Book of Days page...
  
I did alot of testing of markers and ink pads on this page.  The paper is actually torn out of my Dylusions journal and pasted into my art journal. 

The dylusions paper is fabulous for journaling on - nice and smooth especially with my pitt pens.  It didn't take as well to water-based marker blending (title and the blue behind both sets of snowflakes).

On the other hand, the little sun and sky on the right side is done with copic markers, and they worked great!  The coloring lines disappeared completely. 

The great big word "twenty" was done with a brand new set of children's stamps that I just got, and LOVE!  They're called See and Stamp - here's a link if you're interested.

Anyhoo, I decided to keep the Book of Days and Book of Mirrors pages together in the same journal til it's filled up.  I may decide to separate them in the next journal; but who knows.

Thanks so much for visiting, and I hope your weekend is going great!!!
