2771 - Our Home Journal Pages

Hi everyone Steph Ackerman here today.   We've been asked this month to open our eyes, look around, see the world, and be inspired!  Some times you just need to be still to take it all in.

I have never really given much thought to journal pages.  I've seen a lot of then, but never had the desire to create any.  But, this month, I  figured I'd give it try.  I had so much fun creating these pages.  I can't believe how freeing it is!!  No rules.  No demands.  Just do what you want and see what happens!!

I spritzed the pages with  the new ColorBox Spritzers - Mermaid, Lemon Drop and Grasshopper - allowing the colors to flow into each other.  Next, I placed the Umwow Harlequin stencil in the corners of both pages and inked it with ColorBox Grasshopper Archival Ink.  I also used the Susan K Weckesser stencil along the bottom of the pages, inking with the same color.

Stamped and fussy cut Unity's Little Haven with ColorBox Wicked Black Archival Ink, then colored it with Smooch Accent Inks.  I used Susan K Weckesser stencil on the roof to create some dimension, and added my house numbers.  The sun from Unity's Fly Away stamp set was also colored with Smooch Accent Inks.

The flowers along the bottom edges are from Susan K Weckesser' stencil and inked with ColorBox Crafter's Ink by Ann Butler.

The phrases were cut from Susan K Weckesser Live in Color pattern papers.  The phrases are amazing and are very appropriate to these journal pages.  And the bench reminds me that sometimes you need to sit and enjoy the world around you.

So I think I am officially hooked!  I see more journal pages in my future.  What about you?  Do you create journal pages just because???

Thanks for stopping by today.
