Miss Vic shared some crafty secret stickers and booklets with us all and added some (Christmas/Birthday gifts)Pearlescent chalks(love them already) and some Powder puff inks,super cool! Plus we each chose a couple of Glimmer Mist colors to use!Sunflower is my favorite and I chose Creme De Chocolat,too. Glimmer mist are fantastic everyone should own some!

First Journal pages!

My first journal page for Danny!Poor guy gets my trial art work!Well I must say I will be experimenting with this more as I have a lot more pages to do!These are backwards,the back side is the clown collage and the front is my Zetti zombie drawing!I was afraid the pencil would smear,so I did a laser printout and chalked color on it!I will downsize any more drawings so I have more room for journaling and adding paper edges!
