An overload of pages ;P

You may think that because I haven’t been blogging that I haven’t been doing art stuff, but you’d be wrong! Prepare yourself, you are about to be flooded with all of the art journal pages I have been working on! lol

These pages don’t have a particular theme, they are in fact very eclectic. Some were inspired by online classes I have been taking, others started out as gelli prints or leftover paint pages, some were test pages for different supplies, a few were inspired by techniques I saw on youtube (like Christy Sobolewski’s awesome tagology page). Some of the journal pages use scraps or packaging that otherwise would have been thrown away, there’s fold out pages and hidden pockets, washi tape, tissue paper, so much going on!! I have had a great time working on these random pages without pressure or expectations, and I love the layers that have evolved on most of the pages. The yellow washi tape in the upper right hand corners of all the pages isn’t part of the page, it’s just there so I know which way is up when working on the pages, lol 🙂

About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!

  1. Luscious!! So much freedom here–just makes me happy. Can just imagine how much fun these pages were to make.

    • Thanks so much Artsy! They were all a lot of fun, most using different tools or techniques, but just relaxing and not worrying about how they were going to turn out I think was the most fun 🙂

    What a great array of pages. I especially like the one with the red paint splatter with a single long drip. When I first glanced at it I saw a flower, perhaps a rose. Don’t stop creating, you definitely have a gift.

    • Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun taking a different approach with each page, and while they are pretty much all still works in progress, I’m happy with the way they are all turning out.

    My word you have been busy! I love them all 🙂 The fun is trying to figure out how you achieved all the effects. Mono-prints, stencils, stamping, collage….it’s all there and it all works. Your journal must be so fun to flip thru. I love the incorporation of the photos (magazine images?) and as a scrapbooker you would think I’d do more of that sort of thing, but I don’t. I should take a leaf out of your book LOL! I love that …. is it washi tape that looks a bit like subway-art style text in page 2. I am a sucker for text of any kind but that really floats my boat! Really really lovely mix and great fun to start my day with lots of lovely visual inspiration.

    • Hey Mary Anne! I worked on many pages at one time, just adding bits and pieces here and there, so I’m not sure I could even figure out what I did on each page at which layer lol 😛 I did use some magazine images, as well as some pictures from a paint chip booklet I found for free at lowe’s hardware store. I was inspired to use pictures on some pages after seeing Junquemail Contessa’s art journal pages,and Kelly Kilmer’s journal pages (as well as taking one of her online classes). The text bit you asked about is indeed washi tape! It is from one of Tim Holtz’s tissue tape collections. I can’t remember what it’s called, but it came in a pack of two, the second roll is white and has gears on it, I love them both!! Thank you so much for stopping by and for your lovely comment!!
