I finally finished that Winkflash-Transfer-of-Photos project I had going on.
I'm so glad to be done w/ it!!
Unfortunately I found some of my photos had disappeared from the site and I don't have digital copies of them. Bummer!
Of the ones I notice missing...I have them printed out already.
So if I really want a digital print I will have to scan them.
Yay...another project! (heavy sarcasm if you couldn't tell)
And let's not forget I still need to organize the digital files I already had along w/ the ones I transferred over.
Lucky for me there is no time limit for that.
Maybe in my retirement years I can finish up, I mean what else will I have to do, right?
Anyway, enough of that!!!
Today I am sharing a few Art Journal pages I recently created.
After finally being done w/ the Winkflash project, AKA: "Project from Hell", I was itching to do something fun!
I created 3 pages in 2 days!
Okay, so I probably shouldn't get too excited... I mean they aren't all fancy-like and elaborate...
But I sure enjoyed making them (mostly)!
The first one didn't turn out at all like I pictured it in my head.
I had gotten some new templates and wanted to practice w/ them. What better way to practice w/ them but in my Art Journal?!
Well practice I did and fail I did...well not completely, I mean it didn't come out the way I wanted it too but it's not a total disaster.
I covered up most of the mess w/ the picture.
I had no theme for the page but when I started seeing all the IG posts about voting, and stumbled across the "Vote Snoopy" photo, I decided the BG would be a perfect page to document the fact that I have never voted in my life...
"Vote For Snoopy"
Journaling: "I have never voted. Perhaps I would if I could vote for Snoopy"
BTW IDK if you can tell but I covered the page in tape to help protect the facing page, because despite the fact that I let the page dry for 2 days, the misting still got on the other page ...booo!
The second page is just me playing w/ that stamp technique I told you about in a previous post.
I just love the way it looks and I wanted to have a page of it w/out anything covering it. As you can see I went a bit "stamp crazy"...but not only does it look good (to me) it's stress reliving to just randomly stamp all over a page! If you haven't done so, I highly recommend it!
And finally, page #3.
This was a result of me just feeling like I wanted to color.
Another great stress reliever!
I colored all the time when I was a child. My favorite coloring books were Barbie coloring books!
Anyway, I digress...
I pulled out my box of colored pencils and just colored away using different colors, with no rhyme or reason. When I wish finished I thought to myself how it reminded me of a rainbow. This then lead me to remember a quote (I know, I know...me and my quotes! ::roll eyes::)
I googled the quote and found a cute image of it and printed and cut it out.
I journaled about how the quote fits in my life and adhered it to the page.
I then felt it needed just a bit more color so I outlined it in purple...
BTW IDK why I chose purple, I actually don't like the color but it stood out to me for some reason
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!
Journaling: "My 'rain' is my job. My 'rainbow' is my comfortable, happy lifestyle"
I'm not sure if I've actually ever mentioned it on my blog before but I dislike my job.
But it does afford me to live comfortably w/ a quite a few luxuries here and there, so I suffer through it.
Anyway, I'll save more details about that for another day.
1. because I don't want to bring this post down, and
2. because I already wrote too much!
Okay, that's all folks!
Thanks for the visit!
