Amber played in her art journal again using embossing paste she tinted black with paint and TCW’s Feather stencil, Tim Holtz’s Chevron stencil, and Concord & 9th’s Perfectly Penned stamp set.

Andrea enjoys her corporate job, but she loves to fly away on vacation whenever the cubicle farm gets too crazy.  To make her card trio, she used Jane Davenport’s new Aqua Pastel crayons, Tim Holtz’s Cityscape Skyline Dies, Reverse Confetti’s Kindness Cards Dies and Hero Arts’ Playful Flower Letters alphabet stamps.

Anna-Karin made a bird’s nest this week, including a mix of items from nature that she found on a recent walk. The bird is a Prima Relics and Artifacts Finch, and the nest was decorated with various Prima flowers.

Barbara had the crazy idea to create a journal mixing different kind of styles! She used Eileen Hull Sizzix JOURNAL BOX ScoreBoards Spellbinders Seth Apter STEERING WHEEL Etched DiesTim Holtz Sizzix FEATHER AND RAVENS and Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp DOILY 1 Stampers Anonymous.

Cathie created a card with a quick and easy mixed media background. She used Dina Wakley Scirbble Sticks, a Tim Holtz Ledger Script Background Stamp and the feathers are from the Tim Holtz Feather & Ravens die set.

Emma was inspired by the definition of ‘Birds Of A Feather’ and created an Etcetera tag all about friendship. She used a beautiful image from Tim Holtz’s Found Relatives and layered it over the top of various ephemera pieces and a doily die cut.

Kath created a fun whimsical Art Journal Page featuring a flock of cute chubby birds using Simon Says Stamp Lots of Dots, Distress Oxide Inks, Idea-ology Type Lower Foam Stamps and French Design Tape

Lols used a Hero Arts Color Layering Peacock and coordinating dies as the focus of her card, she also used a Peacock Feathers Stencil and Paper Artsy Infusions along with a Bubble Stencil and White Embossing Paste to create the background.

Macarena added another pages to her Art Journal. This time she kept them in a soft grey tones using Prima Sparks Raven Black paint with a colorful Sizzix Feather Duo die inside. For the background she used Tim Holtz Tiles stencil.

Maura created a funky, colorful page in her Dina Wakley Media Journal using Tim Holtz’s Bird Crazy, Carabelle Studio’s Les Mini Oufs 2, and Paper Artsy’s Jofy Love Birds stamps, along with Simon’s own Feathers die.

Meihsia was inspired to make a mixed media art journal page with sprayed background using Tim Holtz Distress Mixed Media Spray and decorative bird images from Idea-Ology Botanical Layers Paperie.

Sandra made an art journal spread using the Scribbly Birds stamp set and the Ricket stencil to create a pattern and add some texture to the background

Zoey loves feathers, they are magical to her and so she had so much fun playing with Distress Spray Stain to create this tag
