Art Journal Page - Never Give Up

I created this page in my Healthy Lifestyle Journal.  I used a stencil to paint the flowers with gesso and then I coloured them with gel pens. The background is patterned paper with paint stippled through different stencil designs. I did the title with a letter stamp set and coloured the letters in with markers. I used gesso to paint through a stencil to make the rectangles for the smaller words. The butterflies are stickers.
I never want to give up on being healthier......(and losing some weight!)
Here's to good health! Never take it for granted. :D

Birthday Card - The Big 4-0

This is the birthday card I made for my first-born daughter.  40????? Wow, time sure flies!

The background was made with a cuttlebug folder with ink on the debossed side. The colour doesn't show very well in the photo. I used the Dyan Reaveley Dylusions stamp set called Curious Corrin for the girl. I stamped her and coloured her in with markers and stickles. I did the same for the crown and glued that to her head. I attached her to the background with pop-dots. Then I added a piece of patterned paper to the side and then the sentiment.

Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter!  :D

Art Journal - Fantasy Berry Bird

 This is a mixed media art journal page done in my handmade box board journal. The background was done on the homemade gelatin plate. The bird was drawn on patterned paper and cut out and collaged onto the background.  I did some stamping and applied some washi tape and texture paste to the background as well as adding some more paint through punchinella. I doodled the details on the bird with markers.
I would like to thank my son-in-law Mat for helping me learn how to add photos to this blog on this new computer. :D
