Today

Not a very original title, eh?
Oh well, guess we can't be wildly creative every day.
Here's a journal page I made last week. I found these flowers that I  made earlier this spring -they were buried under some cardboard when I picked up the studio the other day. They're die cut from fabric (and screening) and then treated with a fabric stiffening product (Plaid Stiffy Fabric Stiffener).  I like the look of the screening. What do you think?
I drew and cut the today letters out from some watercolor paper. I made those letters kind of big because I wanted them to really stand out. Kept them white for that reason too.  I tucked the journaling onto the bottom right corner because I only wanted to say a little bit, and not make that the centerpiece of my page.
I also used a bit of stamping, doodling, ink spraying and stenciling with paint.

Hope you enjoyed this little piece of creative journaling. That's all for today.

Called in to say Hi Erika. Fab journal page. Love the little flowers. Have you ever made flowers from synthetic fabric and then blast them with a heat gun. The curl up and hold there shape. You do need to experiment with different fabrics though.
