Saturday's Creations

I actually got to sit around and CREATE today!! Mostly play around with new supplies that I got yesterday and today!

I got some more GCD: Chip Art Tools! Including the Sparrow lower case set and mini shapes. I created a title chipboard piece for a layout or card! I think I have the perfect papers to go with this and album idea! This project will be towards the bottom of my "Creations" to - do list. :D

I also put together my "INSPIRATION" journal. I used 2 chipboard pieces that I had laying around (they were part of an album and I didn't need them) and I cut up some Bristol paper I've had laying around since college to fit the album. Here is my journal:

And I was so excited to have my new inspiration journal, I decided to test it out and create a page in it. My inspiration journal will be a place for me to try new techniques, play with other medias and explore "art" outside of scrapbooking - while still incorporating it into my pages. On this first page I used water color paints, Water colored pencils, Pink Paislee: 365 Degrees stamp, and rhinestones.

I had fun exploring with these medias and also trying to LOVE my handwriting. This is something I've never been found of and hopefully through this journal I can start to like my handwriting.

I encourage anyone who is crafty in any way or artistic to start their own inspiration journal. It may help you get out of a rut and it's fun. There is no standard set, it's just putting your thoughts, feelings & creativity on a page! Doesn't have to be "perfect" - just be apart of you! :D Have fun!

So nice that you started a journal. I really want to make one, but haven't given it a go yet. Thanks for inspiring me to make my own journal!
