Sundays with Sandee

Hi everyone, here is my very first art journal page using the awesome Dylusions Journal.

 I am finally taking some "me time" and just making pages for me to enjoy and not sell. If you want to see what I make and sell you can click on the tab at the top of my blog where it says "Mixed Media signs at the Art MoB"....but this....this is for me! As a matter of fact, if you look through my signs you will find one that is similar to this journal page, it was one that I would have liked to have kept for myself!

I thought this quote, which is one of my favorites would fit the theme of the journal. 
I added this to the front chipboard piece, it's the inside cover, when you open up the journal. 
( I'll wait until the journal is completed before working on the outside cover.

Here is the foam brush that I show you in the video over at Frosted Designs, if you want to watch it, then please follow this link.

Here are the scissors, pencil and brushes that I made using the exact same technique.
I enjoy adding inspirational words to the tools.

I used an eclectic lettering mix; of stickers, handwriting and cut by my Cricut.
( big hint: do NOT use coconut oil on your hands and then touch your work, because the Sakura glaze pens will not stick!! Hence the wobbly looking "great"  rolling eyes at myself, this is what I get for being a touchy/feely person when it comes to my art...)

Sakura - glaze pens, waterproof pens
Reminisce white pen 

I hope you take this "journey" with me and we can share our journal pages on the Frosted Designs Facebook page!

HI Sandee, isn't it great when we actually get the chance to create something just for ourselves now and then? I think this is stunning...absolutely. I love the colour palette you have used and those scissors are very similar to a pink and green pair I actually have in my craft room! Fab!! Happy crafting, hugs Carole Z X

Aw, this is just great. It really does reflect your taste, in what I've seen you show here., and it's wonderful. Love that quote. We all need to remember that! TFS & I'll check out the video - thanks for providing the link. Hugs

I love the quote - I'd love to use it myself!

Winnie said...

Love this! That sentiment is just so fun! I have this journal and haven't done anything with it yet. I don't know why I just can't start a journal. I am nervous I will mess it up. So silly really.
