Journal 52 2015

Last year I started doing journal 52 but only made it through 4 or 5 months as we put the house up for sale and all my craft stuff was packed away. I thought when we moved into a new place I would just do the prompts when I got my stuff. Well that never happened. Journal 52 is happening again so I decided to join in as I have my stuff. :) Here are the weeks 1-9 Minus week 8 as I still need to do that one.

Whats in a name?

Today is art journal class and her I am blogging about the class we had last week. :)

Last week the focus was on using Amazing Mold Putty and Amazing casting resin. It was a fun class.We molded out first initial from alphabet blocks you get in the toy store or toy section in a stote (Target, Walmart). After the mold was made we poured the resin and let it sit to cure while we worked on the journal page.

When I came home I finished the page by gluing my molded piece to the journal paeg. Cut the page to fit my journal and glued it to the journal.

I had a scrap of the background from cutting the page So not letting it to go to waste I cut it in to 2 ATC cards and made ATC's with them.

I did added the Grid washi background and the line of chevron stamps from VLVS! to the background. I stamped a Mary Vogel Lozinak image and the small striped butterfly images fussy cut them out and glued the wings to the girl and glued them on the atc(they were extra from a spool swap I'm in over at the VLVS! groupies FB group). Stamped a couple of VLVS! sentiments, glued them on and I gt to use my black Stabilo pencil for the first time. 

Anything But a Card Challenge 45 Green with Envy

Welcome to March and another challenge at Anything but a Card Challenge blog. This month its Green with Envy. Oy! Green, my least favorite color. So this was a challenge for me. Back in December I had gotten the famous Raskog cart from Ikea for Hanukkah. After putting it together I gathered all my craft paint that I had put in my file cabinet for the move. I separated them into color groups. After i was done and looking at the colors I was like wow I have a lot of green craft paint! (For the record I have a lot of pink craft paint too! LOL) 

So I took a piece of light wight cardstock that was from my stash. it was about 11x11. I glued on some flowers that were from a napkin. I grabbed 3 bottles of craft paints from light to dark. Some I scrapped with a old gift card. Some I used my fingers. I was a green mess. After that dried I took my 2 green Dylusions sprays in Fresh Lime and cut grass and some stencils. I stamped a Dollie stamp from Recollections with a Vivid green ink pad and a Ditto stamp of dots in a green Marvy Matchable ink pad. I then took another stencil and Distress paint in peeled paint.  Finally I took the Dylusions white Linen spay and sprayed it through a circle plastic canvas. After everything was dried I cut it up in 2 postcards size (4x6) and  ATC size cards. Unfortunately I did not take a picture of what the paper looked like before I cut it up. I remembered that I should of done it as I was making the first cut with the paper cutter. 

So this postcard I used Wicked Birthday tamp set from Tiddly Inks. I stamped her with Versafine black ink pad on Kromecoat from Viva Las VegaStamps! I also embossed her with the Ultra High Gloss embossing powder. I colored her with Crayola markers. I stamped the bad to the bone on a piece of scrap of the Kromecoat. I also stamped the heart and cross bones on the postcard. I glued her and the sentiment down. It still needed something so I glued down the trim that I got at Michael's. 

Okay So I had to add some pink! She is Nancy Grew from Krafty Kimmie. I stamped her the same way as the postcard before. I colored her with the same Crayola Markers. I popped her up with foam tape. I stamped the wheres the pink with alphas that I got a Target. Though I wrote the question mark. 

Finally The froggy ATC. I stamped the Mona Frog from Viva Las VegaStamps! on the Kromecoate with Versafine black ink pad and embosing it with the Ultra High Glass embossing powder. To make her green I used 2 green alcohol inks. I glued her on the ATC and then I wrote on a scrap its not easy being green( Come on I had to!) I backed all the paper on cereal box to make it sturdy.

So be sure to check out Anything but a Card's blog to see what the Other DT members are doing and come play along!

Valentines day is coming up. I have a love hate with the holiday. I like the holiday. and I would probably love it if I wasn't single and had someone. But since i am single I kinda hate the holiday. And I get kinda gloomy...sad...lonely around this time. Well I get that way from time to time all year long too. Can't be happy go lucky funny self all the time. :)
