Art Journal Night at Everything scrapbook and Stamps

I look forward to this night out every month. It's my night to hang out with local art journal junkies like my self. The best part Michelle always surprises us with another cool technique. We have been meeting for several years now and she still teaches us something new. For $10 a month its well worth it!  If you local try it out. She offer's the class 3 times a month.

Now here is a peek at my page in progress.

 First we started with book paper then washed the page with watered down gesso. 

Then we added some Tim Holtz paint and added some thick guess to the bottom of the page and sprayed some paint into the gesso and with a knife added texture and drips. 

After lengthy drying time we stamped and used stencils to finish off the page. 

I thought it reminded me of bubbles of thoughts running around in my head. So I added my word FOCUS -listen to your inner voice!! 

Perfect for my DLP challenge for this week. If you are interested in the Documented Life Project , check out  the Art to 5th girls site for this weeks challenge here Week 12 Challenge

Calling it done!!

Art Journaling night at ESS

Despite my inability to walk for the next 2 weeks as I recover from foot surgery nothing could keep me away from attending Art Journaling night at Everything scrapbook and Stamps. Michelle always has great techniques to teach us and we have the chance to use art medium we may have not played with before. Of course, I usually fall in love and have to take some home. Love that store as her supply of Art supplies is awesome.  Never have to wait for the postman to drop my art supplies.
This weeks page was made with Dina Wakley paint, stencil and stamp!
