"Magical" Art Journal page-for Scraps of Elegance

I recently joined an art journalling group here in my town hoping I'd be inspired to create projects involving more journalling and so far I've been enjoying the challenge; our inspiration word for this month is "magical" and I found this wonderful quote and a fun image, and the paper with the playing cards on it made me think of "Alice in Wonderland" so it was perfect to use on this project:

I did some zentangle-style doodles and some hand-printed journalling, both scary stuff for someone used to making "pretty" layouts...but I think it's great for me to step out of my comfort zone and try different things-it definitely makes life more interesting!

Sindi Jeffers is a lovely and talented designer for Scraps of darkness, and I love her unique and creative style; she's hosting an awesome blog giveaway right now and wanted to share it with as many crafty peeps as possible-have a super day!

ATC shrine and ATC for Gina's Designs

  hi there; Lynne here with a fun project -I decorated one of Gina's adorable little ATC shrines and made a coordinating ATC (although I'm thinking the shrine would also make a wonderful little gift box!)
               The design of the shrine put me in mind of a window, so I added little tulle "curtains", and the                                                     background paper inside has a soft cloud pattern.

I added several fussy-cut images from the paper, which I popped up with foam tape, and also used several pieces from Gina's Mini Flourishes Bella, which I painted, stamped and heat-embossed.



Thanks so much for stopping by; check out the great selection of these adorable ATC shrines in Gina's store-they're so much fun to decorate and can be used for so many things! Have a super-happy, colourful and creative week!
