I've got a fun little journal to show you today. I have been having fun altering various Tim Holtz metal embellishments using my Melting Pot and embossing powder. A technique I saw on Tammy Tutrow's blog. The quote gave me an excuse to add the extra hearts and enter this into the "Put a Heart on it" challenge over at the Inspiration Emporium.

For the past few years, I have been making cards. Sometime they are given to a specific person, but most of the time they have been put with an envelope, wrapped in a plastic protective bag and then put in a bucket to be sold. I did one craft show last November and sold 1 card to a family friend. I have sold a few in my Etsy store. I have decided to take a break from card making and try my hand at other creative forms of paper crafting and also spend some time refocusing on othe areas of my life. I am envisioning this journal as an art journal to help guide me through the next several months. I still love (and plan) to colour all of those cute images, most of which I buy from Stamp and Create. But instead as ending up on cards, they might end up as a journal page or cute wall hanging.
Thanks for visiting!
