OKAY so cool to turn into caddys .  used homemade glue.. {look in search my blog} and glue paper towels to create helps keep it sturdy and helps cover up the staples they use. do as many layers as you like. painted mine black to go with the napkin collage design . make sure you peel the 2 layers of paper off the napkins first.

back side with my art card.

poker page of black and white in my journal.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI Had so much fun doing this black and white page ,with a splash of one other color. kind of manly.I have a bunch of fun pages . Got a box of fun from My husband…. of inks, geltos,stencils and pens……..this page I did make my own wavy lines stencils. and used texture magic on them. I know nothing about poker game so the cards may be helter skelter.LOL….I didn’t take the time to read the rules after I printed them out on the computer or I would have had a winning hand for sure.  … But it was all so fun to do up…..

Session 4-Focal Point: Words, Images Session 5-Details: Pen, Pencil

Session 4: Focal Point
Words-think magazine ads, alphabet stickers, newspaper headlines, print outs, etc.
Images-think magazines pics, downloaded graphics, die cuts, family photos, etc.

When you’re gathering supplies you might be tempted to hand pick items for each individual page. Don’t do it! Flip through your journal to get an idea for what you might want to use. CLOSE your journal then go to your stash and pick out a bunch of possible items to use as a focal point for your pages. Choose more than you will need so that you will have the freedom to change your mind or head in a different direction at the last minute.

If you need to secure any of your collaged items, this is a good time to do that. No time limit, just take whatever time you need to secure down any loose edges with whatever glue you prefer to use.

Session 5: Details
Pens-think drawing pens, paint pens, markers, gel pens, etc.
Pencils-think graphite, colored pencils, charcoal, pastels, chalks, etc.

You’re going to want a lot more time for this session but don’t cheat yet! Make simple marks and shapes, outline a few images, start a doodled border, etc. Just do a little something on each page.

All 5 sessions will take you an hour and 15 minutes. When you’re done, you might have a completed 20 page journal but it’s more likely that you will have 20 pages that you’re absolutely dying to continue working on! From here you can repeat the process again, or schedule your own 15 minute free play sessions where you make the rules. You might have some strong ideas about where you want your pages to go and you don’t feel like you need the time limit anymore. Go for it!!

valentine journal spread

I was playing around with ink sprays, and texture magic. I am running low on that stuff so I decided to make my own. with the baby powder…….Its like a cross between spackle and mud… I must have had been holding my tongue wrong , because it s working more like quick sand then a medium , and  When it finally dries  . It cracks and falls off what a mess. I think I’ll just buy it instead… LOL… 50 percent off  coupons are needed… well I scraped it off and started it over again. so the  dimension isn’t quite what I wanted on the cupid angel. but shes good  for now until I get more texture…
