I CAN journal pages

It's Friday again ????/ what happened to the first part of this week?  I had so much planned...... oh ya, I finally broke down and cleaned house, went to the market and replenished the fridge.
 I did take an evening and played in my journal (finally). I did gesso the complete left page before I began.  The left page I just swiped the gesso is a curvie (yes curvie is a word in our house) fashion,  since gesso will block your medium from soaking into the paper I wanted both effects.  I painted them with acrylic paint, then used some inks from Posh Impressions and a straw and made myself dizzy......LOL!! All the white designs and words were made with a White Out pen.

This is the computer desk in our office/craft room, and where I am right at this moment.  I have been on a cleaning binge that I hope will not last much longer.  I started here yesterday, such a mess of papers and programs and CD w/ pictures stored on them and back in the right back are some PC books.  JUST TOO MUCH of everything! I bought a CD case for the ones that have pictures and it now takes up 2 1/2" instead of 12 ".  These are the older, thicker cases, so I took out the middle part and spent the evening putting my clear stamps in them. Will I get this finished?  you'll have to stay tuned, picture will most likely make next weeks WOWW!
That's it for this morning, thanks for stopping by............until next time

Inky Hugs


  1. Oh I need to go on a cleaning binge! Fabulous journal page! Love the blue splats and circles, so cool! Have a great weekend!

  2. Love your journal pages. Beautifully done.

  3. Ohhh so pretty! I may have to go on a cleaning binge too! If I will create like this afterwards.... I love the swirls in the gesso- and love the journaling- very cool!

  4. A white out pen you say? I love it! I use the white-out tape runners for fixing mistakes in my journaling, the pen is probably better since my tape aways breaks!

  5. I love this sentiment and how you spread it across the beautiful background. Great pages!

  6. Love the splats - they work really well and remind me of allium heads. You can get aerosols of compressed air the stationers (used to clean keyboards) if you don't want to get dizzy!!
