Some Art Journalling!

Ok, so I have gotten caught up in the whole Art Journalling craze that is going on at the moment. I have nearly finished Christy Tomlinson's 3 Hearts - Art Journalling online course and I have to say that OMGosh that Woman is one talented lady and I have learn't SO much from her class. I am just LOVING it!

Anyway I have also been participating in the TGF Heart Journalling each week, which is great as there is a new topic each week to use to help prompt you on your pages! So I thought I would share with you a couple of the pages I have done, but I warn you that I am very new to this so please be kind...hehe!

So this page we had to do a Graditude Page. I chooose to do a page just about being thankful about my family. I know I didn't go into any detail, but I had a lot of fun playing with new techniques. If you click on the pictures it will bring up a bigger version for you to see!

Now this page was about layering, which I have done with lots of papers and paints. I just love this color combination. I had just gotten my order of Liquidtex Inks, which is a liquid acrylic paint and OMGosh I love these, I definitely need more colors. The only down side to starting something new like Art JOurnalling is finding all these new and Awesome products that I HAVE to have...hehe!

Anyway Hope you having a nice weekend, it is pretty crappy here, cold and raining, so a perfect day to craft. In fact I have just finished a Scrapbook LO, which I will share with you another time as I don't want to overload anyone! Might go and get a background ready for my next Art Journal Page!

How crafty are my kids!

It was birthday at the end of July and I have been meaning to show you all the Gorgeous Cards that my older two made for me. They sure are creating some gorgeous cards!

This first card is by my oldest. He is 11 and has only just started to use my Copics, but he is picking it up so quickly. I was so impressed when he gave it to me.

This second card was done by my oldest daughter, who is 10. She has been using my Copics for a while and she is actually really good now. I mean look at that hair, pretty cool huh! 

Do you think they both know that my favourite color is Pink... hehe! Pretty obvious hey! Anyway just wanted to show off how very talented these guys are!

Plus I was a very lucky girl and got an iphone for my birthday. I HAVE been nagging my hubby for one for about the last few months and I was very excited when I got one for my birthday. I have to say that I LOVE it. It is so much fun and I am totally addicted to Words with Friends, love it...hehe!

If anyone has any awesome apps they have and would like to share I would love to know what ones are your faves!
