Lots of new art journal pages

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful, safe, holidays.  I spent the weekend at home nursing the flu, I feel much better today though.

It's been awhile, but here are just a few of my recent pages for  you to enjoy.  The good news is, almost all of these pages were worked on live over on Ustream.

Games People Play

This is the last two pages in this new journal.  It is a re-purposed composition book that I bought from Samantha Kira.  Now that I have my own Cinch I plan on making my own using watercolor paper.
I did a lot of diecutting for this page.  I used my retro Quickutz alphabet set with my BigKick and cut the title out of mini playing cards, I love how it turned out!  I hand painted the two large dominoes, something that I'm trying to learn to be ore comfortable with.

First Page

These are the first two pages in the same journal.  I absolutely love working with red, white and black.  Lots of ephemera used here, most from a few wonderful ladies that follow me over on Ustream.  You can watch the recording HERE.

First Page close up

In this close up you can see the awesome embossing folder I used, the queen of hearts.  I love how you can see the sheen of the glimmer mist in this picture.

Play

Playing around with hand carved stamps and spray inks, not my usual style, but I like how it turned out.

Letter From Paris

Another Ustream page.  I really enjoyed the layering on this page, as well as the Paris images used.  In the little envelope there is a secret book.  Watch the recording HERE.

Me

I love this picture of me.  I took it a few years ago, and used a special "poster" function on my 5x7 printer gave me this cool effect.  I love how the purples work together.

Me close up

This is a (sideways) close up of the page.  I love the texture.  It was a definite floportunity when the glue started bubbling while I was heating it.  The recording is HERE.

Time Passes

This was a really simple page.  I used spray inks, gesso and stencils.  I love how the swirl stamps tie the page together.

Butterfly

This is my favourite page in this set.  I used mostly Portfolio water soluble oil pastels.  The entire recording is HERE, enjoy!

Butterfly close up

Return Flight

I'm definitely in a circle phase!!  My favourite part of this page is the painted circles with Neocolor II's on top.

Return Flight close up

The close up shows the layers and textures.  The scrapbook paper used was 7 Gypsies.

Please don't forget my live Ustream classes every Wednesday and Saturday nights at 9pm EST.  If you are new to Ustream, it's free and easy to sign up.  All you have to do is create a username and you're in.  You can watch me as a guest, or recordings without signing in, but it's much more fun to sign in and chat with us!
Once signed in, go to my show page here and click on the "join crowd" button on the top of the page.  This will let you see me on your "dashboard".

Much LOVE xox
