SDC36: Altering a Book Page

 I've had this fun Journal kicking around for a dogs age, so when Valerie challenged us to alter a page this week, I figured that I would dig this book out from my stash............ Art Journalling has piqued my interest somewhat as of late and although I'm not quite sure what I'm doing, I figured that I have to start somewhere, so thanks Val for the challenge.

I was at my BFF Jacqui's house this weekend, just taking time to relax and wind down after dealing with some stressful events in the last couple of weeks. Needless to say, we didn't get a whole lot of stamping done, but my friend provided me with a soft shoulder to shed some tears onto and a kind ear to allow me to release some of my feelings and frustrations............love you SO MUCH Jax, you mean the WORLD to me. My page is probably fairly bland in the art journalling world, but that's okay. I created the background by swiping pigment in in various colours to create the grass and skyline. I stamped my main images, coloured and masked them before swiping..I added some doodle lines and text in black fineline pen and to outline the XOXO image. I  coloured all my images with Copic Markers.

If you'd like to play along with the challenge, you could win a gift certificate for some fabulous images! Please read the Challenge Blog for all of the details. 

Supplies Used

All tuckered out from my time away.............. I want to share some pics and highlights of our little time away, but will wait for tomorrow as I need a little sleep!!!

Happy Stamping!
