Art Journaling with Limited Supplies: another Sticky Journal post

When we went to Michigan last week, I brought a small kit of art supplies.  In the kit was a medium size plastic envelope with a handful of painted papers, collage elements, stickers and tape.

I also brought a small box with glue, scissors, and a few pens and markers.  I tried to keep the art supplies to a minimum and really force myself to create something from just the small selection of materials I brought.  We used up almost all of the paper and collage elements I brought!

My mom surprised the kids with more stickers, stampers and a packet of markers, so we had a variety of materials to work with.

Some of the pages in my art journal were pre-prepped with spray inks and a little bit of paint.

Sticky elements used in this collage:
  • homemade sticker with quote
  • pink polka dot tape
  • giraffe sticker


Here is another page I made:

And here are a few pics from our vacation!

The rides were fast!

We roasted Smores, but Daria just wanted to eat plain marshmallows
I hope you enjoyed my post reliving my vacation trip!

Ooh-la-la!  Thanks Denise for sharing this awesome online filtering program.  I am amazed and excited.  Pixlr-o-Matic is the place.  You can download to your fancy phone if you have one of those or you can use it on your computer.  Oh, I'm excited now.  Check this out:

Omg photo filters

I really love the look of those Instagram photos.. but alas, I do not own any sort of fancy phone and probably will not splurge for one of those soon.  I did some googling and found two places to do photo filtering online.  The first is omg photo filters

Look what I did here:  x-pro filter, and border

Picnik is another favorite of mine.. Here I used winterize and polaroid border.  Picnik is awesome because it is a complete photo editing program online.  There are all kinds of free things you can do to your photos, add text and borders, make collages.  Then you can upgrade to Premium and get more filters and fun stuff.  I have been very tempted to upgrade, but just haven't done it yet.

Do you know of any other places?

A few highlights from Christmas.

So yes, this blog is about my artmaking adventures, but I thought I'd show you a peak into my personal life as well. :)  The picture above is of my cutie patootie Linus. He is a schnoodle.

This was my lovely niece Sonia with the picture I drew for her. 

These are all the kids in our family--  two from my brother, two from Andrew's sister and the girl in the red dress is my daughter Daria.

This is Andrew and I posing for a picture while the kids were watching a movie.
