Crafting all Day Long

My day started with my friends Sharon and Lynne coming over and we crafted most of the day :)

Then my friend Debbie came over tonight.
She is interested in Art Journaling and asked if I could show her some things.
I consider myself still new to art journeying, so figured we could learn together :)
This is the page that we created tonight.

We started with stamping with Archival inks on our pages.
I really like the red colour.

Then we added some spritzing….always fun to spritz :)

Added some stencils to our spritzing and stamped a boarder :)

I wanted to see how water colour pencils would work directly on our background.

I was actually surprised on how well they covered.
I had told Debbie that if we didn't like the look, we could re-stamp the image on some watercolour paper and adhere her to the page.
Time for the Quote!!!

Here is Debbie's art journal page :)
I like the detail she added to her stockings!

Here is my page.
I am torn on how much I like this page.
I may play around with this page a bit more tomorrow…
I hope you all had a very creative day today….I sure did :)

  1. I am jealous I got an hour in !
    had to clean up and hit the gym - now bed ...

  2. Looks like you enjoyed a fun day! Had to play catch up around here!

  3. So much fun to have friends over and craft together, Nice journal page. Every time you post a journal page I get more ideas but still haven't made the "step" yet.

  4. Just beautiful, Tracy! What a fabulous way to spend the day! :)

  5. Crafting all day sounds wonderful! I always have great intentions, but then something always gets in the way :) I did make myself a junk journal, which I have pictures of. I just haven't gotten them up on the blogggy blog yet :)

  6. Such a fabulous journal page. Wish I lived closer - would love to come crafting. Why are all by bloggie/crafty friends so far away :-( Have a great week.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
