Today's Art Journal Page

Journal Page .
For this page I did a watercolor wash for the background, because this Art Journal is made up of watercolor paper. I used a stencil for the sea horses. Then I did a bit of Zentangle, and Dangling. I Love it! I colored in the Dangles with Sharpie Markers.

Mixed Media Dragonfly

For this 4 x 6 Mixed Media Dragonfly piece, first I made a paper bead Dragonfly from handmade paper, craft wire and seed beads. I painted the background of this piece green, and turquoise. I added a flower embellishment, and a metal embellishment. I made the border of the piece with the same paper that I used for the Dragonfly. The quote on the metal embellishment says "encourage your hopes, not your fears."

Fishing Lure necklace

I made this FUN Summer necklace using paper beads, seed beads and a fishing lure. My DIL is the person that inspired me to use the fishing lure. I think it is a Cute Fun Idea. I just Love my new Fishing lure necklace. :). Just a note it is a little Tricky getting the 3 pronged fishing hook off of the lure, without poking your finger. Be Careful!!

Secret Garden 5 x 7 Mixed Media Collage

For this Secret Garden 5 x 7 mixed media collage, I started with a water color background. I choose the colors blue and brown. I also used blue and brown water color on the tag behind the flower. I stamped the tag with time pieces, and distressed it with Vintage Photo distress Ink, and Walnut Ink Antiquing Solution. I tore a piece of paper from another collage that I made and put it under the tag, and tore a piece of paper and put it on top of that. I stained the edges of that piece of paper with alcohol ink, the color stream. I also added alcohol ink to the paper flower. The paper flower came from imaginisce. I added a key hole at the bottom, a butterfly at the top, and a key that says Secret on the right hand side.
I am happy with the way this collage turned out. :)

Bird House Collage 2" x 5"

Play Time in my Studio this evening. I made this cute little 2" x 5" Bird house Mixed media Collage.
I used a scrap piece of canvas, I put distress ink, and alcohol ink in the background. For the top part of the bird house I used a scrap of Beautiful handmade paper. On the body of the bird house, I took a piece of a collage page that I had made in the past, tore a piece from it and added that to my collage. I alcohol inked a tooth pick and put one of my paper beads on it for the birds perch. The bird is an embellishment from K and Company. I took the letters b i r d and put them at the bottom of my collage. Then I curled a piece of craft wire and attached it at the top of my collage. I really enjoyed my play time in my studio this evening!!!
