Hi everyone! I’m just getting around to sharing some of my Halloween pages from my art journal. I did receive most of the bits and pieces that I used from a swap I was in over at Swap-bot in the ABES group. I did use a few things I had in my own stash to finish off the pages.
I would like to share a quick post of my attempt at starting an art journal. I have SO many scraps of scrapbook paper laying around I decided I really needed to do something with it all…the hoarder in me won’t let me give it away or even worse throw it away…GASP!!!
This page is actually some scrapbook paper I could have used to make a card with. I thought it would work nicely with a photo of me from the beach…which is my favorite photo and some scraps, stickers and embellishments. The “Facts about Me” is a tag that pulls out from behind the photo and has information about me on it.
The next page is a body, words and cat head I clipped from a magazine. I also used scraps of scrapbook paper and the meow and cat are stickers I had laying around. I had loads of fun creating this page.
I actually received this scrap of paper in a “stuff an envelope swap” and this is what I came up with. I had a photo of my nephew Cameron when he was young that really wasn’t a good photo because of what was in the back ground. My solution was use a decorative punch to punch out my nephew, use leftover clip art, stamp his age and the date on the page and I used a Robin’s Nest Dew Drop on top of the party hat.
I do have some more pages I have created but I’m dog tired and hear my bed calling me. I hope this inspires you.
Thanks for looking and enjoy creating!!!
