Here is my latest art journal page. I made some mists after Easter using egg dye and I wanted to test them out. I am loving them so far. These ones don't have any glimmer in them but I made some that have perfect pearls in them also. So much cheaper then buying Glimmer Mists. Anyway, I sprayed them on to the paper towel and then sealed them with Mod Podge. I used all different stencils for the shapes. Then typed out the journaling. It was a fun distraction from 12 x 12 layouts, but I'm back to working on those today. Just realized how behind I am. I am working on deciding what photos will go into mini's and which ones I want to scrap. Hope your all having a great weekend.

I decided to participate in a giveaway that mercytiara is having on youtube. She is giving away an great set of goodies. Here is the video if you want to participate. All you have to do is be a subscriber to her channel and create a layout about scrapbooking then leave a comment on the video linking to where your layout is. So here is my layout.The photos aren't that great. I don't have a nice photo printer anymore because I usually don't print them at home. The paper I used are Mat Stacks from DCWV it is called Hippie Chick. For some reason it seems like the Mat Stacks are the only size the paper is sold it. Seems weird to me. The journaling blocks are a Jenni Bowlin stamp and the letters a Thickers. I punched all the scallops out and just put them randomly behind the photos. I also busted out the sewing machine on this one. I love the stitched look.I also wanted to pass along what I think is a great deal. I found these paper tapes at Target in the office supply section. They are $4 for the set of 4 and I seen 3 different color choices. I think this is a steal considering how much tapes are going for. So check out your local Target.

Here are four more 12 x 12 layouts that I have done over the last couple weeks. I seem to of found my "layout mojo". I am so missing playing with mini albums though and I found some great inspiration for art journaling this week. I hate when I get inspired and I want to put everything else on the back burner to play, but the responsible side of me talks me out of it and says stay on the path you already set. I wonder if some great work falls by the wayside because I didn't follow the fun path. Sometimes my type A personality is evil. lol Anyway, all of these photos were taken last Mother's Day but I journaled about different things on each one and included different themes. I don't need 4 layouts that all say Mother's Day 2011 but this way I was still able to use the photos that I liked while jouranaling about a variety of things. I am off to enjoy the rest of my weekend. Planning to play a bit today. Hope you all have a fantastic Easter. Enjoy the time with family and friends.
