” For this month’s entry I really wanted to try something new with colors. After playing with the Naturally aged kits last month I thought Why couldn’t I do some of the same idea with different colors. Thus began my journal page, playing with color. I also Love this Rose Stamp from Brutus Monroe. I thought it was a perfect touch of beauty.”

“These fantasy wild flowers are inspired by all the color springing up around me. Maybe you have heard the saying,” April showers brings May flowers” – it feels like we had weeks of rain and a grayer than usual winter but there is a great pay-off of color everywhere.”

” My favorite piece from the Architextures line is the Weathered Lady Statue. I paired her with the Stenciled Crates patterned paper from the same collection for a textured piece that had the same weathered stone look. I added rough texture mediums like pumice gel and crackle paint, and then softened things a bit with some lace, paper flowers, and fabric tape. I finished this piece with a touch of humor with a rub-on sentiment.”

” I adore the rubons so much, they look amazing and a so easy to use without sticking to things other than your project. The stash pack phrase ‘Don’t cry, make art’ inspired the page and I was trying to figure out hot to use scraps of tissue to cover the background when there wasn’t enough. Tearing them up was the solution!” art journalCCB Products used:

    Fantastic pages. Love Barb’s high heels, Linda’s stitching
    page, and Rosemary’s little girl with her ballloons.
    The background on that one is fantastic.
    I hate picking out certain pages because they are
    all marvelous – just that those hit a cord.
    I like to stitch, I’ll never wear high heels again,
    and I’d love to be the little girl outside romping
    thanks to everybody for sharing.
