a favorite art journal page...


but first…

from the bottom of my heart…

THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the birthday wishes…
I sincerely appreciate each & every one of them…

Rick said…"I didn't know that you knew so many people"…

lol…LOTS of my art friends live in my computer!

again…

THANK YOU ALL…I got well over 400 wishes, emails, cards & texts…made my day!

now speaking of hearts

here's a fun art journal page…
I was actually sad when it was finished…
I really enjoyed creating this one & didn't want it to end...

it's the large size page that I've been doing…
8 ½ x 6 inches…so it's BIG!




I've gotten LOTS of requests for a tutorial for this new technique…
and also questions about making this a class for stores…

YES…that's my plan for 2014…a full 2 day art journal weekend marathon, where we'll make the journal covers & then fill the journal with this style of pages...

I'll be demoing this technique in the Ranger booth at CHA, so if you're attending, please stop by & visit us…

if you're not attending CHA, I plan to do a video of this technique with Christine from Scraptime…she & her hubby Mark do an awesome job… and she posts these videos right after CHA…so no long wait to get started with the fun…

if you want to be ready with the ingredients, so you can play along…


after that it's just adding stamping & stenciling


so if you have these ingredients, you'll be ready to go…

and speaking of going…

I'm off to the studio to

make CHA art!
wendy
ps…YES there is a Ranger designer challenge for this CHA…
gotta get my thinking cap on for this one!
