Good words – the best art comes when you create from your soul – even when you feel a little less soulful.
Get more out of your art, by making art with your art. Enjoy this snowman book mark on those cold icky days where you just wanna snug in with a good book….or those days you wanna craft and you need a place to hold your spot in a book you’re inspired by.

I hope you 2013 is starting out on a great creative foot! Dream BIG!
This is how I see myself…maybe not as others see me…
I don’t think my journal can have enough words….I’m also going to include some pictures….
quote at the bottom reminds me “nothing can dim the light that shines from within – Maya Angelou”
It’s up to us to make ourselves radiate light and positive thoughts.
Here’s a fun grungy style doily that will give your art journal some texture – use it digitally or print it out and cut around it. To download click the photo – right click and save picture as (it’s a PNG file)
I’m so honored to be asked by Julianna to be part of the debut of her new dies with Spellbinder’s.
Embrace who you REALLY are! Really no one can be you, or copy you, better than YOU! A saying I’ve heard over and over again from Jewels is “Live Your Truth” or as I put it “Embrace who you really are”. We all have strengths and weaknesses, we all have different talents and abilities, but that doesn’t change our value as a person. And that’s what makes us all interesting and individual!
The “Positively ME” collection of Spellbinders dies by Julianna Hudgins celebrates women, empowerment, and strength. I LOVE Jewels dies and am thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of the Spellbinders Blog Frenzy and to use these dies more in future projects.
For my project, I knew I wanted to make an art journal, something I could write my daily thoughts, ideas, sketches, just any sort of jibberish that came to mind at any given moment. I also happen to love dress forms. (My mom has one that was my grandmothers and I simply love it’s shape and style)
So naturally I chose the Jewels Goddess small – Sku Name LF-013 Jewel Goddess
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Spellbinders Die – Jewel Goddess Small, Heart Large and Heart Small Sku Name LF-013 Jewel Goddess
- Spellbinders Die – Kite Sku Name S5-097 Jewel Treasures
- Composition Notebook
- Decorative paper (one for the background, one for the dressform and one for the dress)
- Cardstock in either black or brown
- Decorative trims – I love beaded eyelash trims
- Paper doily
- Sequin ribbon
- Fabric scraps
- Collage Pauge
- Stencils of choice
- Stickles glitter glue – silver or color of choice
