Sharing a Journal Page or Two.....

Whew... what a whirlwind of December!! Everything went back to normal today, with the Husband going back to work and my daughter back to school and me back in my art room. YAY!
I have created two art journal pages and had in the back of mind some Challenges that I wanted to submit them into. 

For the first page I used a tutorial I found on Pinterest, I didn't follow it to a -T- because that is just so unlike me but I did use some of the techniques that she used and the over all idea was the same. I had some issues with the spray trying to come off but overall I think that page come out ok.
For this page, I am submitting it into the following Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show - For The Totally Made Tea Party (No rules)
Order Of the Opus Gluei - Free For All
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - New Something Challenge (my star stencils are brand new and I couldn't wait to break them out and use them here)

Both Simon Says Blogs are giving away 50.00 gift certificates to the Simon Says Stamp Store .. They are so wonderful!!



The Next Journal page was from a tutorial on the Ranger site with Dyan Reaveley. She is so great and I just love her backgrounds so I decided to give it a go on this one. I just love how this background came out so bold and bright.
This page is going to be entered into the following challenge:
Stampotique SDC81 Challenge - they always give away a 30.00 gift card for their Stampotique Store. Love these stamps!! I'm thinking this page isn't quite done yet I might go back and add more later.
