I then stamped some background images, added the text and hearts and some stickers, acrylic paint and more ink for distressing. I stamped some edge stamps that I had made with acrylic paint on some parts of the borders.
I saw the text on a post on Facebook. I liked what it said so I printed it and added it to this journal page.
Here are the two pages in more of a close-up. You can click on them to see them even more close-up to see the great texture that the wax paper made in the background. The colours are more vibrant irl, but my camera doesn't seem to pick that up too well.
Take care and have a creative day! :D

This is the time of year that I like to watch the live webcams that show the eagles laying their eggs and carefully sitting on them for weeks until the babies hatch. The webcams stay until the babies are grown and have left the nest. It is amazing to watch! There are several webcams that do this and I like the one from Decorah, Iowa. Check it out!
Happy eagle watching! :D

This is a two page spread I did about lots of old fashioned memorabilia. I did several layers of painting and stamping and collage on the background. I also did lots of doodling and shading and distressing on the page and on some of the images.
I was following a tutorial by Pam Carriker on how to do a journal page in her style. It was called "Visual Journalism 101 Tutorial" on You Tube. I'm not sure yet what my style is, so it's fun to try techniques that other artists use.
Enjoy your day and maybe try a new technique or style today. Above all else......have fun with your art! :D

This is a set of sympathy cards I made. I tried to make them have a subdued and quiet look. I used the Sizzix Bigz Top Note die to cut the white cardstock. Then I heat embossed the tree images on the die cut shapes and used torn paper for masks and sponged on colour for the backgrounds.
Thanks to my friend Linda for two of the stamps for the tree images.
Peace to you all. :D

Have fun with your stamp sets and designer papers. Dig out something from your stash and get creative! :D
