More Than Words - "Playlist" and Ephemera

 Good Morning all and Happy September!  

Today at  More Than Words, we have a brand new challenge up for the month of September


You are to use the word "Playlist" on your project and use ephemera as well!


I had fun with this art journal spread! I used some tissue paper for the background, added some white gesso wash over this. I used a new stencil and turquoise acrylic paint to add some colour. I added some ephemera I have had in my stash for forever, my little singing girl, and my sentiment... which describes my current playlist! LOL!. 

I do hope you check out what my teammates have done and share your projects with us on our blog, FB page or Instagram!

Have fun creating your playlist this month!

I do hope you will check out what my team mates have done and join us this month!

Happy Creating!

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - #216- "O is for Old"

 Hi there snarky friends! It's been a while since I did an art challenge 

and I just couldn't resist the one at

 Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers ... 

"O is for Old"


I'm old, my products are old, so I just had to do this art journal page for this challenge!


I used an old gelli print for the background, stamped some swirls with an old stamp and heat embossed these with old black embossing powder. I then used an old stamp for some background stamping, my old ladies, and my old washi tape! The only thing that wasn't new was the computer paper I used to print off my quote! 

Thanks for the great challenge my snarky Sistahs! 

((HUGS))

Try it on Tuesday - Summer Blooms

 Hi there! Today at Try it on Tuesday

we have a new challenge up for the next 2 weeks... 

"Summer Blooms"


I made an art journal collage using some printed words for the background, with a wash of purples and pinks for the background. The bottom part is a piece of scrap paper that I have had for ages and was just waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it.  I used acrylic paints and PITT pens to do the flowers and leaves. Happy Summer Blooms!

I do hope you will check out what my teamies have made for this awesome challenge!

Happy Summer Blooms!
