sketch book

Hey y'all!
Thought I'd post a little journal I made

I'm always looking for a place to jot down my sketches so I picked up a moleskine cahier.

I stamped flower garden on some vintage bookprint, coloured with prismas and then smooshed some shimmerz on top for sparkle-
I went kinda messy cause I like it that way

I was feeling a little non traditional when I did this card

Our theme was Christmas or Holiday this week

I stamped and pieced artsy house on top of a misted kraft base that I embossed with embossing creme and thewoodgrain template.

I added a bit of snow and some tranceparency snowflakes, a wood button and some twine.

Well play along and email your creations to the bella herself- there is always bella bucks for brags.

Next week's theme is ALL WHITE..now isnt that interesting???

bear ornamenty tag thing.....

its Sunday...I dont know where the weekend went....

I made up a couple of these ornamenty-tag things.

I used a $1.50 wooden snowflake from Michaels which I misted then applied some matte medium.

I mushed it through some art glitter and shaved ice glitter- I am beyond addicted to that stuff!!!

Now....I know that this is supposed to be a white bear ' cause I used

polar bear circle
but I didn't want a white bear...lol

So do you think he should be a tag or an ornament???
