My New Art Journal

I made myself a new art journal. It is a smaller journal, which I think will be perfect for me. I made the cover from canvas, that I painted , and stamped the words follow your art on the front of the journal. I used different sizes and different kinds of paper. It has 2 signatures, and 36 pages. I know that I am going to enjoy this art journal.

Chocolate Marshmallow Fudge

Cute Paper Pumpkin

I made this cute paper Pumpkin in about 10 minutes. I love it! I followed this Graphic 45 tutorial.


I made this fun little journal with a 9" x 12" manila envelope. I painted the envelope them embellished it with colorful tape, a ladybug stamp, and flowers that I punched out. It has only 1 signature, 26 pages. I used  a few pieces of designer paper, and copy paper. I added a few paper beads to the tails of the thread that I bound the journal with. This is a gift for a friend.

Options Slippers

I just Love this slipper pattern. I knit the top and the sole, then crocheted the pieces together. They fit perfectly! Because they are knit with 2 strands of yarn held together they are so very warm! I used Red heart Boutique unforgettable yarn in the color Dragonfly. The pattern for these slippers can be found here

Because I fell in Love

I have joined a group at Artgeeks.ning. The group is Finish in Five. In this group you use 5 products or techniques and your imagination to make an Art Journal page. This is my first Finish in Five art journal page. The five things that I used are a napkin, stamp, stickers, book page, and a butterfly embellishment.

Mixed Media Journal

I made a 5" x 7" Mixed media Collage. Then I used the collage to make a cover for a journal that I made. I like the way that it turned out.
