Art Journal Pages

I finally worked in my art journal today, after neglecting it for weeks.  After watching a video with Dyan Reaveley, I decided to cut out some stencils with my Silhouette and give some of her techniques a try.  I love the results!


  • Light-weight acetate
  • Dylusions Inks
  • Acrylic paint
  • Rubber and clear stamps
  • Permanent black ink
  • Silhouette electronic cutter set on the highest settings, with Multi-Cut set to 3
  • Hand-made stencils
  • Dylusions stencils

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  Whether your Valentine is your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend,  partner, child, parent - or even yourself  (We have to love ourselves, right?) -  I hope you enjoy celebrating Love today!

Here are a few cards that I want to share with you.  I made them for my children 9can't find a picture of hubby's card) with cut files from Miss Kate Cuttables.  I used the Print & Cut feature with my Silhouette.  I have the original machine, and these files printed and cut beautifully!  Miss Kate has a free file every day, and her prices for other files are very reasonable.  Other materials included:  A2 card (Die Cuts With a View), vellum, patterned paper (Sweethearts by Doodlebug Design), Glossy Accents by Ranger, tiny punched hearts, a rhinestone heart, baker's twine, and embroidery floss.  Thanks for visiting, and remember to always be your crafty self!
