Kat's Art Journal Magenta, Teal and Silver

There are 9 of us artists participating in this Magical Art Journal Journey.  We each chose a color or a color combination for our own art journals. Kat chose Magenta, Teal and Silver. She is such a girlie girl! 

This is the second journal, that I've gotten to play in, of the 9 that will travel through the states and through the UK. This is Kat's art journal. She is a dreamer, a writer and a magnificent mandala maker living in charming Cornwall. 

My theme for this was daydreamer. I added pockets with bits of decorative papers to jot her story ideas onto. I added some bling with some small spots of glitter and a row of rhinestones across the header of one of the papers in the idea pockets.The front cover is a large magenta flower with silver, magenta and teal ribbons as the border. I added her name in Silver glitter letters at the corner.

If you'd like to see some of the other pages in our journals during their travels have a look at our Pinterest board here
The next journal heading my way will be Angie's and she has chosen white for her journal. Should be fun and challenging. 

Happy creating!

Lovely Sunday

Ah today is a beautiful sunny Sunday. I found myself drinking my morning coffee and dreamily perusing Pinterest. I can get lost in there for hours. So much inspiration and so many beautiful images. Spring is in the air around here. Birds chirping and squirrels nesting. It's a happy place in my yard.
My husband, Jack loves tulips and these are his tulips today. Gorgeous cherry red with white tips. Reminds me of lipstick.
We bought this house in February so it has been wonderful to see the fruits of the previous owner who was a gardener spring up. Pardon the pun. I couldn't help myself. =) There is a gigantic spread of these vines across one side of the house.
So while out photographing my flowers to share with you I discovered this lovely vine, as well. It's POISON IVY! Yikes!! Great! I am so allergic to it that I nearly was blinded as a child and it makes me look like I have elephantitis according to my mother. Thanks mom! Gotta love the honest truth. haha 
So now I have enlisted my husband to get rid of it. Have to run and get him prepared.
Enjoy your Sunday!

Lisa's Art Journal Color Rust

I am participating in a Round Robin Art Journal Swap. Our theme for this go round is colors. Each participant chose a color or color combination for their art journal. So each artist has to work within that color or color combination in that journal. Lisa Wrights art journal was the first one to arrive in my mailbox. It flew over from England. Must have been a fun journey.
I have to say that Rust was a real challenge for me. I didn't like my first pages so I ended up redoing them. Good thing Lisa left her pages loose allowing us to take them out and lie them flat.

Poor Kim Imgirl has had to wait for me to send this lovely journal on to her. We are supposed to mail them out by the first of the month. I promised her I would have the next one to her on time. Good thing too because Kat's art journal just arrived yesterday. Her color combination is Magenta Teal and Silver. Should be fun and challenging. Come back to see Kat's art journal pages. She has booklets so that will be even more art to create.
If you'd like to take a peek at the progress of all of the journals this far you can go to our group Pinterest page and have a look around.

Happy Creating!
