Twenty 15!

Happy Twenty 15!!
And what better way to celebrate the new year than with a little arty sharing. This year I've  decided to do my creating a little differently.  I'm going to try and do a little creating in an Art Journal.. I'll still be doing my tags and bits and pieces, but I will be keeping them all in some way or form in a journal, well trying to anyway.. lets see how it goes..
My journal of choice is a small Dylusions Journal
I spent a little time over the 31st Dec and today altering the front of my journal..  Of course as you have probably guess I’ve used a few of my favourite bits and pieces.. Tim Holtz ephemera and paper, tissue wrap and tape and alpha parts, and of course, Distress  markers!
It started off like this.. a few layers of old book paper, patterned paper, tissue wrap and ephemera pieces..
and then looked a little like this..
after a few more additions – some alpha parts, and a little bit of distressing with my black soot distress marker! – Seriously I love this marker! and would be lost without it!   It now  looked like this. ( the numbers for the 15 are cut from the round  numbered alpha parts in the Framed set.)

a few remnant rubs and a little more distressing.. and I was done.

and of course I had to alter the inside cover..

The Details:
Journal : Small Dylusions Journal
Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Ephemera, paper, Tissue wrap, Tissue Tape, Remnant Rubs, Alpha Parts, Journaling Tickets
Inks & Markers: Distress Markers ( Black Soot, Broken China)
I can't wait to move into it and start creating! Here's to a wonderfully Creative  2015 for us all!  Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope to see you again soon!
