Summer Love

The last few months I have submerged myself into the colorful world of art journaling. 
I. Am. In. Love. 
I think I have found my true crafty passion. I love everything about art journaling. It gives me a type of freedom in my creativeness I have never experienced before. I love all the different mediums and experimenting with them. However, I was really starting to miss my favorite Saturated Canary digi images and my beloved Copic markers! 
Then it hit me...DUH! 
I can totally color my images and add them to the journal! I'm a little slow these days! Lol

The background was created with Pan Pastels (Yellow Ochre, Magenta, Orange, and Permanent Red Tint) and 2 Heidi Swap 12x12 stencils (Sunshine & Tiny Heart). 
The Saturated Canary image is Cali Girl and she is colored with Copic markers. I finished this page just in time to enter it in the Saturated Canary challenge #44 Hair that is different... 

The tag started out as a white canvas tag that I treated with some canary yellow craft paint. I also added a little bit of my yellow Twinkling H20 watercolor to make it shimmer (hard to see in photo). I hand wrote i love summer with a white paint pen.

The big heart is a cardboard piece by Maya Road treated with Faber Castell Gelatos. The smaller hearts from the stencil were treated with some Stickles (fruit punch) for a little sparkle.

The butterfly I found at Ikea of all places! lol I am always on the lookout where ever I go! You never know when you might find an item that can be used in your crafts! I just recently bought a roll of camera gaff tape at the Sony production lot for my art journal! The cashier looked at me like I was nuts :) 

I took this picture to show the stencil process.

I hope you enjoyed my summer journal page. I am so glad that the warmer weather is finally upon us. I guess I have finally turned into a true Cali girl! It took me almost 20 years, but finally my heart belongs to Cali! lol 


  1. This is adorable. I like that it isnt overdone with too much. It is very clean and bright with cheerful colors. The sun rays with her hair being in a blown look make you almost feel warm gentle breezes at the beach.

  2. Love this, its summery & fresh & her hair is cool.
    Thank you for joining us over at Saturated Canary, hope you will join us again.

    Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
