Happy Birthday to my darling daughter who turns 21 today!!

I’m running a bit behind, I ran into a period where my muse sort of took a vacation without me. So the past week I’ve been on a bit of a roll. I hope it last.

When in doubt add splats…

the little things aI was trying to combine ideas from two different journal pages I had seen, It didn’t quite work out the way I thought it would. and I was left to much empty space, so I dug out my trusty Dr. Ph Martins bombay inks and added some splats, after that I was rather happy with the end results, and I’ll try the ideas again with another journal page.

Brick Walls

Posted: March 7, 2015 in Journal Pages

wallsLast page in my Break The Rules Journal, I’m working out of order so I actually one more page to finish before, I have completed another journal, I’m just a bit excited about that. There is real since of accomplishment when you know you’ve reached the end of one journal and get to start a new one 🙂


I used my brick stencil with lightweight spackle I mixed the spackle with some paints to get the brick look. After that was dry I used some of my new Dyan Reaveley paints and smeared it around trying to get a graffiti look, I am trying to figure out how to make words on the brick to look like graffiti. I have an identical canvas to this page, that I am going to hold off on until I’m more ready.
