Something new from me today, art journaling!  Ah yes, this is the year of trying new things for me so here I am dabbling in art journaling.  Truthfully, I find it very difficult, but I admire other people art journals so much that I just have to give it a go.

On this first page I first inked with Distress Oxide ink in Worn Lipstick and then stamped with Creative Embellishments Hearts Stamp. Next I added a Scribble Frames that I heat embossed with Ranger Antiquities Rose Quartz embossing powder.  The people are part of a Tim Holtz Ephemera set.  The quote is a rubon from 7 Gypsies.

Then I added one of the Washi Tape Shape Clusters.  I inked it with Worn Lipstick and then heat embossed with Bridal Tinsel embossing powder.

The background on this page was also done with Distress Oxide Inks in Tattered Rose and Work Lipstick and Lindy’s Mission Bells Brown. The Mini Frame and words were misted with Prima’s Empress Gold.  Then I cut up the Leafy Circle Frame and tucked in pieces with the flowers I used.
I stamped on the background and  didn’t like it so I partially covered it with a Mini Frame and managed to make it look like I was framing the heart right?  After all, it IS an art journal, and this is where we play and experiment.  So the stamping was an experiment gone bad!
Some spatters on both pages and that’s my foray into art journaling!
Be sure to stop by the Creative Embellishments store, there are so many great chippies to chose from.  AND, did you know that Creative Embellishments also makes stencils, stamps and wood veneer pieces?  Check it out!
