BIG news + Gelatos Art Journal

May 30, 2013

 Recently, I have been dabbling into the mixed media world and starting my own art journal. But before I share with you what I've done.... I have some BIG BIG news! 


YES!! I made it to my first ever Design Team on Craft Lovin' Challenge Blog! So I am officially designing for the blog with different themes every month. EXCITED!! :) 
(Thanks to Tabitha & Julie for bringing me into such a lovely group of wonderful crafters. )

This blog is a NEW challenge blog and there will be a challenge every 2 weeks. And when there is a challenge - there are always prizes to be won! 
The Design Team hostesses are Tabitha's Designs (you can find her new shop here -- brand NEW digi papers and digi stamps -- really fun stuff that can be won in the challenges!) and also My Crafting Channel.

The FIRST ever challenge will start on 1st June on the blog .. so, do join us for some really creative projects and a chance to win PRIZES! For more updates, you can like their FB page too.

Ok. Now onto my mixed media scrappy. Here are my first 2 pages on my brand new art journal.


I've used Faber Castell Gelatos on the background and used lots and lots of Unity stamps on it. The music notes is Kaisercraft. I also used doilies to soften the look :)

Here are some close ups on each page.



Don't you think Angie Girl is just gorgeous?? 


I also used my brand new Faber Castel Pitt Pens to doodle on the pages. There is no rhyme or reason for this. Just some doodles .. my first one too! :)



Have an awesome weekend ahead! Don't forget to join us on 1st June at Craft Lovin Challenge blog :)
