Believe...

Hello my sweet friends.  I am back today to show you a 
page in my Art Journal.  I am so happy that I found a little time
to play in my journal and do a little creating.  I have been trying
to learn how to do a little bit of lettering..  I still need quite a bit
of practice.


I had no idea what this page was going to be when
I first started out.  I just started laying down layers and layers of paint till
I was happy with the background and the page just evolved from there.  


And then I found this little angel image from the Graphic Fairy. 
See I told you I love using there images. 
When I saw it I just knew I was going to use it. 


For my flowers I used a heart shaped punch.
And lots of Mod Podge.. 



I had a lot of fun with this page and I am looking forward to
a little more practice with my lettering.. 


Remember last weekend when I said I was doing a photo
shoot with my girlfriends daughter..   I thought I would share
a couple of the photos with you. 


Thanks goodness I don't have to do any editing on these
photos..  This young lady is already a pro at Photoshop and
will be editing her own photos.. YEA!


This is the proud mom..  Rachel is not looking to excited that her
mom jumped into the photo..   I love this shot. That face is priceless.. 


Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting me.
I really do appreciate all the love and support 
you gals give me.

Hugs~

Lori said...

Oh, my this journal page is fabulous! Love that saying - may have to use it... Great photos, too!

lauren bergold said...

your art journal is sooooooooooo very ♥GORGEOUS♥ and if this is your "practice" lettering, i can only imagine how awesome you'll be when you "get the hang of it" missus, lol!!! (ok, *I* need to practice, b/c i want to do that TOO!!!)

as always your photos are amazing... it doesn't hurt to have a GORGEOUS super-model, but then you've given her the best angles, lighting, etc; soooo FAB! (& YEAH her face in the last pic is BEYOND hilarious, definitely one to save for a future child/grandchild of those ladies!!!) ♥♥♥
