A Few Little Things

Here's a journal page I made a little while back.
There's a lot going on with it. I like all the detail layers in the background. I made it with a lot of stenciled layers. Also some spraying. And it all started with a small Gelli print on a large piece of watercolor paper. I like the colors I used too.
I like the stars and even the flowers. I guess I am pretty happy with this journal page.
And here's a few unfinished tags I've also been working on.
I'll warn you, they are in really an early stage and still need a lot of work.
Just me, experimenting and working on a bunch little pieces all at once...well doing  little bit on this tag and then a little bit of that on another tag.
I found this background stamp while cleaning out the other day and boy do I love it.
Its always nice to come across something you forgot you had.
I've got a few ideas how to finish this  tag too.
Once I do that I'll post it again.
With a little more TLC they will hopefully shape up into a finished form.
This kingly one looks a little bit muddled.
Lately I've been playing with tags. I like the size of tags, and I am thinking of binding them all into a book once I get tired of making tags.
This tag needs some coloring TLC and a word of some sort. Or something else!
But I think it will finish up just fine.
Funny how photos really show you the flaws in your coloring.

Posting this to Paint Party Friday. Stop by to check out what some talent people have been up to!

Yesterday I took a trip back to my favorite craft store that is clearing out the entire inventory (but they claim not permanently closing). I bought some paints and some brushes. I bought a few more stamps and some more blank tags. A few Copics and a couple of Fudball pens. All marked down!  I once again tried to only buy things that really interested me and things I use..not just buying to buy. Its always fun to get some things you've had your eye on for awhile.  Hopefully this weekend I'll have some time to play.
So do you have any fun plans this weekend? 
We've got the super bowl on Sunday, and deflategate or not, go Pats!
Hope you enjoy yours.

I like your journal page too, it's very celebratory. And you have three very interesting different tags, looking forward to seeing what else you can do with them - the third one could already be declared finished?

Neat work. I really like that dragon!

What fun you must have had bargain shopping! That sounds great but I hope they don't close since you seem to enjoy going there. Your art this week is wonderful, especially the marvelous tags.

I can't wait to see what the dragon comes into!
the last one reminds me of a jane austen book - which gives it automatic brownie points :)
