Friends With Flair Friday

Hello friends!  It's Friday and time for Friends With Flair!  I've been busy lately with the kids and haven't made too many cards.  But that's ok I've been messing around in my art journal again though.  Finding videos online from Dyan Reaveley (Ranger).  I also found a great mixed media journalist via Youtube:  Limor Webber.  I've been picking up ideas and techniques from these gals.

Today I have a page I have been playing with and where I used Unity Stamps:



It's not a work of art by any means just a "canvas" to play on.  Here I used my Distress Inks and stencils (inspired by Limor)  to create the background.  Things like the black tag like stencil near the lower right corner just doesn't work well.  But those are things you learn from or go back and do something else with.  But the jar and sentiment are Unity.  The big black dots is Unity and the Hearts on the lower right corner is Unity.  I also used a Unity background stamp over all the stencils which might be hard to see.

The bright pink ink on the jar is the new neon inks by Hero Arts!  I picked up pink and green yesterday at my LSS.  VERY COOL STUFF!  I want more now.  Will be super fun in journals.

Anyhow, even though this is not fabulous I still thought I'd share because hey why not!  I love playing around with different products in a journal.  I feel like if it comes out great well that's fabulous and if not no worries shut the book or just turn the page.  OR just Gesso over it all and start over!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Friday!!
