Messy, no rules, and just plain fun!
There is a group on Facebook called Journal 52.
You are given a prompt each week and you create a page for what that prompt means to you.
One of the prompts "A Simple Place" and this is what Cat created for this prompt. She used all kinds of inks, a stencil, some shredded cardboard, canvas...all kinds of fun stuff! Lots of colors and textures used on these fun pages.
This is Sharon Leonard's pages for "A Simple Place". Cat and Sharon are both VERY artistic!
I LOVE these pages!
Check out Valerie's pages for "A Simple Place". If you know Valerie, this is SO her and absolutely FABULOUS!
This is my page for "A Simple Place", my back yard. I had lots of fun using the different kinds of mediums, especially the Stampendous embossing enamels and mica fragments across the bottom.
