It’s What I Do… Journal Page with Shari

Hi everyone, it’s Shari here with my August Art Journaling project.  This one uses a lot of collage layers… book text, paint and a photo as my inspiration.


I had really inky fingers one day and my son wanted to grab a shot. Of course I had to flash a peace sign… because after all… It’s what I do!


To accent my photo, I incorporated some great T!m Holtz Idea-ology products, altering them to my specific taste.

I’ve also put together a video of the process for your viewing pleasure!

Thanks for hanging out with me! Have a fantastic weekend!

  1. Fabulous! I was wondering where you found such an appropriate picture until I read they were your fingers!!

  2. Great journal spread, Shari! I love the format of this journal with one shorter side. Also like the simplicity and order to your page, even though you are using mixed media! Very refreshing. SO tired of seeing those big black circles and rivers of paint drips down the pages!

  3. Love the video. I would love to make pages like this. I just have a hard time making it happen. I think I think to hard. I love the look. You’re an inspiration.

  4. Oh Shari, I could watch your journal videos for a whole afternoon. One of these days I will try my own journal page… and you are the responsible for that :).
    P.S. – Love the picture! Inky fingers give the mission accomplished feel.

  5. Sadly, I don’t do art journaling…but, gladly, I look forward to your creations and may even get inspired to add it to my list of things to try when I have the time. It’s always fun to watch you create.

  6. I just love the peace sign! What a great page.
    I must put that idea down in my idea drawer on
    Craft Cabinet APP.

  7. I just love your style, artwork, videos, cards…everything! It is so much fun to watch you create – thanks so much for all you share!

  8. awesome page. I like how you kept the stamps on their home base and used it to stamp on your project. thats why we all come here. too learn from the pro’s..
    I also cant wait to see how you put your book together at the end.
    its awesome that you showed us in the video gluing it to your last page. thanks again
