Fauxbonichi Journal..Day 19 & 20 and my Honey's Booboo

I wanted to share these 2 pages in my Fauxbonichi journal as I really like how they turned out…even though I am almost a month behind in sharing them.

I used a large oval shape stencil and drew the oval.
I had this small flower stamp, but I wanted to stamp many of them and wanted them to over lap.
So I had to make a mask.
I stamped one flower on a post it note…but made sure to stamp it where the sticky part of the post it note was….then the fun part, fussy cutting it out.
As I stamped, I would move my mask on top of the flower I had just stamped.
Lastly I drew the sprigs along the oval.

I repeated this for the second page :)
Then added some colour to the flowers with my markers.

You all know how much I love my washi tape…but I decided to stamp my borders on these pages.
I did this for 2 reasons
1, I have a few (a lot) of border stamps I have yet to use.
2, I want to lessen the bulk that washi tape makes to the borders.

I really like these fall colours.
If you look closely, I added a couple of colours to the leave border stamp before stamping.

The writing took me forever to come up with on these pages.
I wanted to do different fonts for each word or sentence….but as you can see, I ended up just doing my own handwriting.
Second page.
I added colour to some of the words, the reason being, if you only read the words with colour it says "Being Creative is a Way of Life"

Onto My Day:
I didn't post last night as I was at Emergency with my husband Wayne.
He banged his hand on the cupboard when putting his razor away.
He tried to hide if from me…but when he did show Heather and I we made him go to the Hospital.
It looked like his knuckle was out of place and sticking up.

Good thing I told him to take off his wedding ring before it swelled up too much.
Supposedly it isn't broken…..but that is what they told him about his wrist when he hurt it last year, which was broken and still hasn't healed.

I made Wayne take the day off of work today.
So my day was spent watching movies with my Honey :)

I hope you all have a very creative day :)

Tracy :)
