TYS Journal Pages Pt 3

Here are some more of my art journal pages from the Tell Your Story class. I realize looking at my pages that I have a teensy weensy obsession with Japanese Washi Tape. I love it!! Have to work on today's page still, being running errands all day. Yay for outdoor photo shoot because of nice weather!! *cheers*

I couldn't find a cute grocery bag to use for the "floral effect" so I used Kaylee's bag from the diapers she uses, I think it was pretty clever :)

In great news, it is actually 70 degrees here in Minot (it was in the 40s earlier this week), so me and Kaylee decided to celebrate with the perfect Spring clip for her hair!! Isn't she a cutie? All ready for some nice weather!

I hope everyone has a great weekend, Sunday I'll be sharing the elephant plushie that I finished, along with the theme of my giveaway, and early next week I'll be posting the HUGE giveaway!!! YAY!!!!

What are your plans for the weekend?
And if your taking the journal class, are you enjoying it as much as I am?


P.S. Hobby Lobby has so many cute new things, go go go!!!

  21. What type of book do you buy for the journal? The 1s that they sell in the store? I saw a really cool book about Journeling & ideas. I was going to get it & then figured I wouldn't have the time to do it, but you've inspired me. I also love to handwrite. So I could handwrite a lot & then add some pics & decorations to the pages. Where are you taking the class?
