Christmas Art in July

Our Christmas in July celebration is almost over and I couldn't let it end without creating a canvas with some seasonal art.  But, this time I'm not using my art journal or a canvas.  I've been given the opportunity to use a repurposed piece of pallet wood from Redeemwood.

Chalky Finish for a Thrift Store Frame

I've worked with lots of different kinds of paints, but I've never tried chalk paint.  So when I found a floral print with a not-so-pretty frame at the thrift store, I knew I could save it and give it a new life.

Flower Power Art Journal Pages

I couldn't wait to get started journaling in my new altered book journal that I had just created.  See tutorial here.  I decided to start trying different mediums, since I'd never journaled in a plain page book before, I wanted to see what worked best.

Summer of Color - Week 6 (last one!)

It's the final entry for my Summer of Color with Kristin at Twinkle, Twinkle Like a Star. I can't believe how fast these 6 weeks have flown by and I've enjoyed every minute of it.

Altered Book Tutorial

Recently I saw a You Tube video on how to alter a book into an art journal.  So, off to Goodwill I went to find some books to alter.  I already had some vintage books that I use for home decor and in my booth display during craft shows, but I wanted to preserve those.  I picked up a couple of books from the 1980's that were the right size and the pages had just enough vintage coloring to them.
