Journalling

I've added to some new pages to my journal.  They're not finished yet .. (Are journal pages ever finished??) .. but I really like them and wanted to show them to someone.... anyone..... LOL


 I've used moulding paste and a Tattered Angels stencil on this one.


This is the back inside cover.  Didn't plan it this way.  I started off by stamping "The End" and then just started adding all my favourite word stamps.


.. and my favourite.  Don't know why as it's a bit dark and grungy (and as said above - not finished yet I think).  I've used more moulding paste, distress inks and dabbers.  I've always loved this image and the phrase is one I try to follow.

The final page is my favourite. Always say I will start an Art Journal but have not done it so far - anyway I could never produce such amazing results. Lynne M x

I love these pages! Such divine creation!!!! I haven't done anything in my journal yet since AJ2. Most likely the first new addition will appear during AJ3.... Too much to do, too little time! Oh well. Beautiful art of yours! x

Sid said...

Great pages , I particularly like the middle image !

Karin said...

These are all fantastic Carol. I love the Grungyness with the colour combination of the first, you've created some very interesting layers. The second make your eyes travel all over the page with added head tilting to! lol
The third has amazing depth to it, I love everything about it including the quote!

Marilyn Rock said...

Stunning journal pages Carol! I would have trouble choosing a favorite here but I, too, am drawn to the one that has the dark color (last one); it's so intriguing! Beautiful work as always xxoo

You are inspiring me to get back to journaling. (In truth, I've done two or three pages - maybe. I'm not a big butterfly fan, but I love your butterfly page. The colors are so great. I like the dark and grungy one too. They are all so different. I guess that's what journaling is all about.

I love these pages, especially the butterfly one. However there is something stunning about the dark grunge one it draws me in.

mimilove forever said...

ooo cannot wait to see the entire journal...love the contrast of the soft tone butterfly against the darker tones of the text and grunge page...mixed media heaven! x;)
