Just a quick visit this morn to say hello, show you a few photos of a WIP and let you know, I won't have internet for 2 weeks,from tomorrow, so I will catch up with you when it's back on!
Now onto my Camping Adventure Journal-True North (Lynne Perrella Stamp)
So, I found a couple of these ledger journals at a garage sale real cheap and I decided to use this one to start recording a few of our camping trips as well as adding a bit of nature.
Please forgive the shortness of this post as typing is just starting to come back and also, I created this journal awhile ago- so I might have forgotten a few things! ")
I first stenciled out some diamond shapes from CrafterWorkshopStencils Harlequin stencil. Then sprayed on some of Lindy's Starburst Shimmer Sprays.
The center piece was done separate and added to the top of the of the journal using heavy matte gel.
The stencil of the sun rays is by Memory Box and I used lightweight modeling paste with gold paint added to it.
The sea faring woman is one of my favorite stamps from Lynne Perrella! She is headed North as that is where our camping trips usually take us- up North!
The waves underneath her are again modeling paste through a stencil with a bit of Lindy's sprays added as I scraped the paste through the stencil.
For interest I added a bit of Ranger's Glossy Accents to a few places.
Next up is one of the spreads I created in my journal.
This is about the North Eastern Bluebird-New York State's official bird.
a fishing lure i found on the beach while camping. At all NewYorkState campgrounds, Bluebird nesting boxes have been put up to encourage their reproduction and return, as they were endangered here for awhile.
Oh Dear! I am afraid the Bluebird's diet is not just fruits and berries,but also mealworms and yummy flying bugs and butterflies(small ones of course) !
Silly birds and their politeness....
The papers in the background are from the book Tangle Starts by Alice Hendon that I received from her generous giveaway! These pages are awesome for backgrounds in journals!
if any of you recall the cartoon series "Chip & Dale" , you will remember they were forever being overly polite to one another. That's where this bird chit chat comes from-lol
Thanks so much for your visit! I will be back around to visit in 2 weeks time when I again have internet!
My friends, you are the best! thanks so much for your constant love and support!
Peace & Love
