VLVS Challenge-August

Just got back from family vacay in Germany so I am getting this in under the wire!!! As Dr. Who is FINALLY starting back this month what better for an art journal page??!!
I used their suggestions of orange/black drips/ rays and swings. I basically made my Tardis swinging on a metal chain- genius I know right!!! You can't really see but the dictionary definition is swing. My rays & quote are used from plate 925. Fun! Join Viva Las Vegas Stamps for their fun challenges!!!

SDC 159

Stampotique Challenge #159: Bows. I have been in a Project Life card making mode so this challenge was great to make a fun Halloween journal card. The challenge is to use bows on your project and when I saw that my new "smitten moustache monsters" stamp friends all had bows on, I knew that was the perfect stamp to start with.
 I started with stamping the friends directly on the card in archival ink & colored them in using dylusions spray in waterpens. Mr. Stripes was also stamped in the other corner and colored with gel pens. The background was colored in using watercolor crayons. My title is a sticker. I made a mess in the lower corner trying to add another stamp so that became my journal spot. Added some glossy accents on my monsters so I could stamp the "owl tree" and the image would be behind the monsters. Voila! C'est fini.

More JYC in August!!!

Yes all forward movement continues to count. Day 11 & 12 follow! Scrap Wrap day is  one of my favorite days of the year. Usually when my Sister-In-Law & I plan it for Christmas Eve Day & we spend the day "scrap wrapping" our gifts while watching Christmas movies like Monty Python & the Holy Grail, Armageddon, Bond & the Bourne Series. We do also throw in Love Actually, Family Stone, etc so there is some Christmas involved. My husband plays role of bar back bringing us unique beverages & tasty treats.
Above is a picture of the prezzies under the tree the year 2012. We add all kinds of bling, bows, ornaments to our wrapping. Hence the title Scrap Wrap. This year we were in Wisconsin for the holidays so there were multiple days of wrapping as some packages had to be mailed.
Day 11: was basically pictures & stickers. Day 12: I made a pocket for a picture of my husband the day he was my scrap wrap partner pre-holiday.
 Sadly I didn't have a picture of my Sister-In-Law Dianna to add to the page- big photo gaf. Perhaps I will add one from the year previously! 
 Moving on- the next page I just put in the advant calendar with no info- kind of self-explanatory.
Day 13: was the first day my teenage boys had to shave. A must have to document! I took a large tag, covered it in holiday tissue paper-love that look. Added photos etc.
Day 14: Another page on what we did that day. This is my first year doing Shimelle's class and I am working on 1 year behind so I was going with what we did that day more than the prompts which while very cool & interesting I didn't have the photos or story for a lot of the time. Maybe next year. Took my son for his birthday movie. Conveniently The Hobbit arrived right around his birthday. We play hooky, have lunch & see the movie! Love this tradition!

JYC con't.

Yes it is Christmas in August!!! I am working on getting my Journal Your Christmas book by Shimelle done by December & am rapidly running out of time. What I am actually doing is some major cleaning procrastination but the previous excuse still applies. I only have one page -Day 10 but all forward movements count. If you are really good I will do more in the next post!
Pretty simple page- photos, mat, washi and some stickers from my stash. Done. Shimelle's prompt for this day was "making a list". I did kids with a Grandma on one side and my list on the other.
I adhered an acrylic pattern paper to make a see-through pocket which holds my list. In theory-my list tags are blank but that is where my list will go!!! As soon as we start back up with next years book so I can find my list & re-write it. Yay!
