My 1st Art Journal Page & Good News!

For the past few months I've been checking out bloggers who make art journals and watching Dyan Reaveley create awesome pages with her Dylusions stamps, spray inks and stencils. So, I've been collecting some Dylusions stamps, ordered all the sprays and some of the stencils. It just looks like so much fun, but for some reason I just felt like I didn't know where to start. So, today I just said I'm going to do something and I made this page. The background is made from Dylusions sprays - I love their bright colors and how they blend together. The stamps are also all Dylusions. Today I finally got in my full set of Tim Holtz distress markers so I couldn't resist trying them out on Doolally Dorris and these little houses. Love them!! I also highlighted some areas with a fine point white paint pen.

Part two of my post is for anyone who gets The Stampers' Sampler Magazine. In the new April/May/June issue I have a 3 page feature article called Striking Strips and I also have 3 cards in the Different Point of View Section! I was so excited to see my cards when I got my copy yesterday! Check it out if you get The Stampers Sampler.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!
