thursday prompt

my sister actually came up with this one. i just happened to make a page first. and the prompt is: i refuse to it could be anything you don't want to do like laundry or something more personal. like for me i have been dealing with anxiety and it was trying to sneak up on me again. so lets get down to business.

1. i used coffee sleeves to illustrate the prompt

2. because i just wanted it to be about the journaling i used a magazine picture that showed how i was feeling. 

3. i used some washi tape to add some interest.

and your done pretty simple huh? hope you enjoy. 

love and cupcakes

New Journal!

Hola Journalers!  
I am really excited to share with you my new art journal. This is going to be the journal i share from and do pages for!
I started out by buying a rather large sketch book (in the store its the canson mixed media journal)
then i covered it with a colored paper : i used french paper in blue.
then i wanted my cover to be simple with a title (my last one was just coved in brown paper bag with painted pink flowers.) 
i went online and looked for a pretty picture i was obsessed with and i couldnt pass up. i found a pretty deer. i cut her out so she looked like a pop out.
Then i picked a title that i loved/thought would be fun and matched the image i glued down.
i picked norwegian wood by the beatles. 
i traced my letters and cut them out from woodgrained paper then glued them down.
for a little extra fun i added some japanese tape by the binding!

Some details of my journal cover!

 Peace & Love!

sunday prompt

Hi my name is jes and.......I'm a nerd! yes yes i know you guys are shocked right? maybe not. everyone i have ever met always think that they are nerds. (i think deep down every one is nerdy) i go to school with a of nerds but were not all the same so your prompt is: I'm a nerd because...
1. i gathered pictures one big picture and a smaller picture

2. i thought the white page was too plain so i used some water colors to add some color to the page and to the notecard

3. i used the back of those"bill envelopes" and some washi tape

4. also made a room behind the big picture to add a note card for my journaling

5. i use starbucks coffee sleeves to make the" NERD" letters 

6. used some scrapbooking paper to make the circles

7. used some paint pens and my scissors to make my note card interesting part of the page

ta-da! your done!

hope you enjoyed this page!
