February Page and some Journaling


Hi Everyone, 

How are you doing? I have had a busy old month to myself so no blogging for me .....but hope to rectify that in FEB. I have had time to visit the many blogs but just not managed to do any myself. 
Today I am showing my completed Jan Page for Kate Cranes challenge of doing a little bit of journaling everyday the deets are here : http://thekathrynwheel.blogspot.com/2012/01/2012-bring-it-on.html. I had a great time filling it in but have to confess:


 That i made the page for february at the same time as making Jan's. I just could'nt stop when i started!! As you can see i have already taken the liberty of filling in 2nd Feb. A special day in our house as my beautiful twin girls will be 5 and growing up so quickly. The quote is from a clarity stamp that i thought was apt for this month. The girl is a magnolia stamp and the frog from Dylusions as are the inks and paints.

 A little closer
 And closer still......i just love this stamp it makes me smile everytime i use it or see it.
 Last month i said i was going to a beginners class for art journaling at Art from the Heart well unfortunately it had to be cancelled it has been rescheduled for this month so uber excited about that this month not long now.

In the meantime I was looking at my blank pages of my journal this month and for some strange reason i got the urge to draw a face .......I have never in my life drawn a face (well maybe at school but that was cough cough years ago !!) or had the slightest inclination to ever do so but hey that's what happened and i have to tell you i enjoyed every last minute of it . I know it won't win any prizes for depth and colouring but i liked the way it came out.....so have been drawing some more.......and my little girl has been colouring them in for me as she wants to help mummy in my special book.......will post the out come next week they are funny!!!

 And here are is another page that came out with ......I wanted to try and use pan pastels not sure what i am doing with these or not sure how you layer them yet but I like playing with them. I like that there is no drying time . I think i will have to look on U tube for some help.  The stamps are from Dylusions.....
 And finally a page in progress using pan pastels again......I liked this tag that i made last year and did not want to see it end up in the bin so decided it needed to be added to my journal.  By the time i get to art from the Heart i will have no pages left to work on!!!! buy another i hear you say ......well i have 5 on the go at the moment!!!! Its really addictive...

Anyway sorry to go on and on but just wanted to post a few things .....thanks for stopping by the next post wont be so long I promise.......Off now to make some birthday cake ......and then to look at all the completed pages for Jan and the new ones for Feb .........take care Mandy x

P.s Thanks for joining my site you are too kind....... i will try and blog more than this month x

  5. Love your journal pages. I have the polka doodle houses and haven't used them yet - hopefully later in the year for a journal page. And Magnolia lend themselves to each month ... gives us an excuse to use them more :) Keep up the fab work - looking forward to future creations.
