I have been asked recently by a few women who read my blog if i would make them a finished journal and i just thought that sounded so fun so i have made another one and have it for sale if any one else is interested in purchasing a finished journal. i have it in my shop here

 This journal is made out of a variety of decorative cardstock that vary in size a little with pages peeking through. It has 20 pages in it with layers of images and words and some of my favorite quotes and other little decorative bits.

some things this week...

some sketchbookery again and i'm enjoying adding washi tape to the pages for added color, i think washi tape is one of the best things that have been invented and i am so addicted to buying new ones whenever i can.

some little flower drawings in a new large sketchbook that i bought


and i am adding images to my smashbooks i like that the paper is already there to be layered upon with my favorite images from magazines

i was published in a chinese magazine...

I am so excited about being contacted from a really beautiful and unique chinese magazine, they asked a variety of art journalers and sketchbook artists to be a part of this issue and i was so excited to look through it when it finally arrived in my mail box, i tried finding any links or website for them and all i could find is a facebook page, but it would be fun to see past issues.
So here are my pages...
