Unscripted sketch 161 and Art journal everyday!

It's Saturday! I used some BoBunny country garden dp along with an image from Cora over at her Clearly Vintage blog. for this weeks' sketch at Unscripted Sketches blog.   I just found her blog and she has some great vintage images for FREE ..check it out :)
I was thinking summer so this would fit for the "Raise the Bar" challenge: Hello Summer! ....  Yellow always says Summer to me....I got these gorgeous vintagy flowers on a reduced table and L O V E them.....sewed them all on a kraft tag. 

NOW...bear with me....I am CRAZY about Julie Fei Fan Balzer...so...I am FINALLY getting brave enough to post some of my art journaling.  This will be my first post to her Art journal everyday list.  This art journaling is just about the funnest thing I have ever been doing! :)
I found my Strathmore mixed media journal can take alot of paints and ink- its' great.  This was done using some Adirondaks spray inks, Dylusions and cheap acrylics.  Also some great stencils (Julie Balzer- the Crafters workshop)....


 Thanks to Julie I am finding some GREAT therapy lol! ................below was again spray inks, various stencils, stamps, magazine words and an image from Stampotique called "oh boys!"

Thanks for looking...I am ADDICTED now!  :)

Oh my goodness I love the card and your Art Journal is amazing. So funny I just posted my first Art Journal on YT. I have been watching people for over a year and finally took the plunge and started one. I am afraid I will be copying others and really want it to be my own. Not sure how it is going to go but I am really looking froward to the adventure.
Thanks for sharing your journal.

such a pretty card. And big cheers for you for beginning your art journaling and sharing!! It really is freeing to just let yourself go and just play. Love your pages! see you next week for more play, right? :)

You are blowing me away with your art journal. AND inspiring me. I picked up a magazine on it but I'm still walking around the edge of the pool, trying to get my toe in. At least the ideas are starting to circulate in my head.

Here's another free vintage site you may not know yet.
