Taking It Easy...Yeah Right!

Great time to stock up for next year! However, if you are like me, you will have these out ALL YEAR ROUND! WOOOOHOOOO! SKULLS GALORE!
WORKING ON MY JOURNALS...YES, I HAVE ABOUT 4 or 5 GOING at once. I just think of them as my little traveling companions and tuck them in my bag and off we go!

Getting over from being sick...I got out my journals and started to prepare more pages. How I have missed doing this. Just random painting, adding magazine clippings, vintage papers, scrapebooking papers, stamping elements, etc...not really thinking about it to much...just getting the pages covered for the next step...which is lettering!

If you haven't already see Teesha's Videos, hop over to YouTube and put in Teesha Moore. You will get about 12 or so videos that she has recently put up on her journaling techniques. LOVE IT! I'm currently working on 3 regular art journals and 2 Moleskines. My Moleskines are mainly for sketching my portraits from my workshops over at Suzi Blu. (WHICH I ABSOLUTELY AM LOVING). The other journals are for creating random pages with tons of pictures, stamping and collage elements. After watching Teesha's videos, I thought I would get my journals rocking again and try her techniques.

Try using bubble wrap! Gives your pages great texture!
Here are some pics from My MOLESKINE...God, I love these journals! LOL

Off to learn a new software for our new FORUM over at DAG (Dark Artist Guild)...More to come on that...Stay Tuned!
If you find yourself with idling time, grab your JOURNAL and START SKETCHING! YOU WILL LOVE IT!
