New Beginnings

Happy Holiday Monday!  I hope everyone is enjoying their free day.  The weather here is kinda crappy so it was perfect to start a new project I am working on.  Yeah!  As most of you know I had a rough year.  Lots of big changes in my life and it just seemed that as soon as I recovered something else happened.  I am happy to say I have adjusted to the changes and FINALLY I got my craft back on!!!!  Yup I have started pulling out my scrap supplies.  I was doing my DT Work but it was a little hard at first.  What I wasn't doing anymore was projects and things for myself.

For a few weeks now I have been thinking of documenting the changes in my life in the form of a "Smash" journal book.  The book I have is not exactly for this kind of theme so I decided to create my own.  I have the tools and now I have the drive.  Today I am posting the first page.  My book will be 8x8 and I already have a beautiful hard cover from Zutter.

I used kraft paper.  A page from a book and used wood shapes with glimmer mist to create my silhouettes.  The pussywillow is from Prima and I also stamped an image below it.  I was so excited with the results.  I will probably add some more journaling at a later date.  Page two to come shortly.  I forgot to add 2 things so I have to rephotograph it.  TFL!


  1. Gorgeous Tina - love the colors and the misting!

  2. I think art journaling is a perfect way to work through things. This is very pretty. You GO girl!
