Mixed Media Journal Book



This tag was made using tissue wrap, stamps, embossing ink and powder, gesso, paper napkins, stencil, archival black ink, metal butterflies and distress crayons. 

This page was made with two stamps, tissue wrap, watercolor crayons, black archival ink.

The third page was made with a photo copy of my mother at age 4 and her big sister at age 6. I used texture paste, die cut flowers, big words, tissue paper and distress crayons. 
This chipboard book has six pages. 

Years ago, when I wanted to make a journal, I would buy old bound books, go to my bandsaw and cut the books into a shape or a heart. I would share these books with my mother and then we would spent all week working on our books. Some of the books, I would glue 10 to 20 pages together. One book, I glued a bunch of pages and did a deep cut out.
Eight days ago, dear hubby and oldest granddaughter took me to my mothers home. We spent the week playing with our stamps and supplies. Like usual I took more supplies that I needed. She doesn't have a car so we were bound to the house. We spent each day till we got tired playing with our stamping supplies. I worked on a few tags, made a few cards and then started working on my journal book. Most of the time was spent looking for supplies, discussing what to make next and so on...it was good to be with my mother again.

I'm home now getting things back in my stamping area and thought I would share these pages.
