As soon as Sarah from the Fruit Pixie sent me the new Ruby Rock it China Blue paper I knew I would make my holiday journal with it. The whole collection reminded me of Austria and the Gumunden pottery I collect which is blue and white.
It also gave me a chance to use some of the hand carved stamps I have made recently. I had always wanted an edelweiss flower stamp but the chances of finding one was zilch, so I found a photo we had taken of a wooden one, traced it and carved it. I must admit I was so pleased with way they looked. The journal one is one of mine too!
All the pages in my 6x6 journal are the same, somewhere to write and somewhere to store all the goodies like bus tickets, leaflets etc. Of course another chance to use another one of my stamps too!!
So here it is all done, now all I need to do is pack! My journal and stamp carving tools are coming along too of course!
I know these tags don't exactly make scene but to be honest when you are given 12 random words it is difficult to get them to make any sense at all but I must admit I really enjoy the challenge of getting them in some form of order and then collaging a tag to go with it. This is all part of the Art Journal Caravan.
This was such fun to make for the Fruit Pixie, a little street of Chipboard houses and trees from Creative Individuals and covered with the paper from Keisercraft Miss Match collection. Step by step instructions can be found on The Fruit Pixie Blog.
This is our last week in Atlantis on the AJC. I have started to enjoy and have faith in my own artistic ability, something I have always thought and been told, I had none, so this is a big step for me but I am starting to think perhaps I can do it :)
