I first covered the page with some hearts that I cut out from post-it notes to use as masks. Then I used Dylusions spray inks to cover the page. I removed the heart masks and added some muted coloured stamping in the background. I wanted my page to depict joy so I drew some stick figures jumping for joy in the hearts. They make me laugh! I stamped pictures in the other two hearts. I made a large heart from a paper I had made with more spray inks. I wrote on the big heart and cut it out and popped it up on the page with pop dots. I drew around the other hearts with watercolour crayons and painted them.
The sentiment is something that I try to do every day. :)
I had fun with the background on this page. I painted it to look like a corn field and then did some stenciling, stamping. doodling, and shading with ink. I wrote the title on a separate piece of paper and then coloured it and adhered it to the page. I stamped the girl and coloured her with pan pastels. The corn and beans were pictures from grocery ads. I then added some washi tape.
It makes me hungry just looking at this page! LOL
I am thankful for my friends. :D Tell your friends how much they mean to you.

I drew the fish and coloured them with pencil crayons and then cut them out and glued them to the page. I drew, coloured and cut out the anchor and the rocks the same way. I used some deli paper that I had painted for the tall grasses, cutting it in long, thin strips. I drew and stamped some underwater greenery on the background. I added some bubbles with a white gel pen.
I wonder what those fish are thinking? *LOL*
I hope you have this much fun with your next page. :D
Take care! :D

I drew the circle by very lightly tracing around an apple corer/slicer and traced the sections as well. This was the base for the drawing. Then I tangled the sections with coloured gel pens and did some shading with coloured pencils. I put one gem in the middle of the mandala. If you click the picture you can see a closer view.
Thanks for stopping by. :D

The theme for this week in Journal52 was Book Inspired. I drew the owl on a separate piece of paper and coloured it and cut it out. The background paper was done by putting a stencil down and then sponging through the stencil with inks and stamping through the stencil with stamps and different colours of inks. I then glued the owl to the background and drew the branch and drew some zentangle patterns and leaves on the branch. I found some ornate letter stickers for the O and A for my lettering and wrote the rest with my calligraphy pen. I like the way this one turned out. :D What do you think? I appreciate hearing from you.
Have a fabulous day and read a book!
