Unity Friends with Flair Friday!

Hey there!

First off I want to thank the Unity gals for my FWF win last week, that was such an awesome surprise and treat!

So are you getting sick of journal pages?  Because I have more to share!  LOL!  I love making cards that is how I started in this hobby but since getting into mixed media I've been trying to play with more things and mediums etc.  It's fun to just mess around even if it does not come out great!

Here is a 2 page spread I did yesterday:


Yesterday new Angie Girls when on sale in the Unity shop and I was inspired to use one of the Angie Girls I currently have so I stamped Angie's Andie Girl and used watercolor crayons to color her in:


Then I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with her so I ripped her out (instead of cut) and put her in my journal:


My background is using Dylusions Sprays and Crafter Workshop stencils.  I used ink for the leaves which is also a stencil.

On the second page I used the Unity Alphabet set called Carnivale Alpha!  I LOVE this kit I haven't used it much up until now but it's wonderful and fabulous for art jounralling!


 On this second page I stamped using the alpha kit "Angie Girl" and on the bottom in white I wrote "and friend". :-)  SO I had to stick my little owl up top which is a Unity Itty Bitty!

This journal is actually a real book.  It's a hard back book I picked up at a book sale for .25!  I call this journal my owl journal.  I started it I think early last year while I was taking the Wild Art of Abandonment.  It's one  of Christy Tominlinson's classes.  We learned to draw quick fun owls so I created pages in this journal with owls and since I love them I decided to make this my "owl" journal which means I will use at least one owl on all pages even if small :-)

Here is the front cover:



I also wanted to share with you a different two page spread from this journal.  The owls here I drew myself and colored with water color crayons.  The background contains Unity stamps as well as stencils.


Well thank so much for stopping by today!!

Maria, I'm so glad you shared more journal pages today. I love looking at them. They give me ideas, if I ever find time enough to play. I got some books from the local library for a quarter, so I'm closer to starting. One of these days, I'll surprise you!
