Be Unexpected

Materials: printed paper, paint pens, stencils, collage, washi tape, doodles, glitter,  chipboard alphas.

Favourite thing of the week

Chalk pens. I recently purchased a set of American Crafts seasonal chalk markers. The 5 piece set included Red, Green, Silver and Gold chalk markers and a white Galaxy Marker paint-like ink for dark & light paper. WOWIE.




A grand good morning to everyone. I think I’m getting the hang of WOYWW fun and sharing. For additional information check out Stamping Ground and join in on the blog hopping.

Bold Moves is the topic of today. I am working on a Mid Month Challenge at Journal Workshops with Jennibellie. Very similar to the 7 backgrounds in 7 days from earlier this month, we are now doing 3 journal pages in 7 days using the same format. Each day we do a different technique: paper, paint, stamps, stencils, ephemera, collage, markers, etc.

5 days of Mandala magic with Julie Gibbons is the other fun and games for this week. More on this next week.

I also wanted to share/ask about one of my recent journal finds.  Bookmans is our local “entertainment exchange” and while in Phoenix last weekend Michael and I dropped by.

Journal finds

Hand crafted by The Natural Paper Company Fountain Valley, California. Bookmans find at an incredible $3.00

Hand crafted photo album by The Natural Paper Company Fountain Valley, California. This is absolutely beautiful (even if it did live in a smoking home). Any suggestions regarding care and use of this type of paper?

Wishing everyone a terrific day.

I’m taking part in my second  WOYWW (what’s on you workdesk Wednesday) desk hop today. In case you’re wondering what it’s all about, just follow this link to the Stamping Ground. This is what my desk looked like this morning.


A glimmer of an idea on being thankful for, yes, coffee. I had this page in my SMASH book and I knew I had to do something special with my Gelly Roll Moonlight (luminous best on dark paper) pens. I was also playing with chip board letters, a new stencil, Distress paints, Candy Rock glitter and Silk glaze. (ohhh ahhhh) And I had cut out the coffee mug just last week knowing it was speaking to me.

When finished I added a real cinnamon stick just for fun. I am thankful for many things in my life, and today I was thinking about drinking coffee as an activity that goes with the people, pets and pursuits I am thankful for. I don’t know if you can see the glitter in the modeling paste to provide real dimension for the whipped cream.

Oh yes, the other item on my desk this morning was Socrates. He may slow me down, but then I was enjoying a cup of coffee at the time.
