More Than Words challenge Blogspot November 2016


I had fun making an art journal spread with this challenge.

Something Old-
I used my Dylusions Ink Sprays- which I have had for a long time now.
I also used some Tim Holtz Tissue Paper that I have had for many years.
A Prima Julie Nutting Doll Stamp- again I have had for ages and rarely used
Old cardboard letters
also letters cut from an out of date  magazine

Something New -
 my new crafter's Workshop  stencil 456 (lines)
My new Kazzazz Alcoholic Markers which I recently won in a raffle
my new Carabelle Studios Art Stamps " Etiquettes Grunge"

Something Blue-
 Dylusions Sprays  London Blue  and Vibrant Turquoise

Something Borrowed-
 I borrowed ideas on building journal pages from a video( Mixed Media Art Journal Page Tutorial) by Tiffany Solorio on u tube ( found it on Pinterest!)

The word Special is incorporated into the pages in a phrase close to my heart.

I think I have covered the criteria!!
