Color Makes Me A Very Happy Girl !!!

         I'd like to start by saying thank you to everyone who left me encouraging comments the other day!! You made my day :):) Thank you , Thank you !!! I just needed a little extra loving that day ...and I got it!!
                                                                               
           So, I have been journaling!! After writing the last post I sat down and made a journal from scratch. Painted the covers, and started working on my first spread. It was wonderful to get my fingers messy and sticky...at times I found myself laughing.. I was making such a mess :):) It's really fun to get messy...you should really try it :):) Hope you enjoy my pages......
The cover of my new journal.

I put down some leftover scrapbook paper.

Added some Neocolor II to the page.

Then more paint, tissue tapes (I am sooo in love with tissue tape) rubber stamping, glitter, and I colored some modeling paste and used one of my stencils to get the raised affect that you see with the orange in the photo.

I had to add some lace, buttons, and flowers of course :):)

Here is the finished spread!! I will give you some close ups too!

I used a photo of myself :):) 


I just love the way it turned out. 

I also worked on a page of my fabric journal as well.

I only got to one side of the spread though. This card sits in a lace pocket. The pink rose was made by the wonderful flower artist Dana over at the Lambs and Ivy Design blog.

I am so excited about how this book is turning out!! 

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you liked what you saw!! Leave me comment...I answer every comment that is ever left on my blog. ( you see.. I'm a chatter :):) hehe 

Have a super great day!!
