Cassie completed two pages in her Dylusions Creative Journal using Distress Inks and Tim Holtz Palette Collage Paper for her background.  She added a Tim Holtz Photo Booth Photo, Snippets Ephemera and a sentiment from a Dina Wakley Typed Ledger Set 2 

Andrea made a page in her Dylusions Small Creative Journal and used Paper Artsy’s Infusions (In the Navy and Rusty Car) as well as Dina Wakley’s Scribble Sticks and Tim Holtz’s Palette Collage Paper for the background.

Anna-Karin made an art journal page focused on a bold and large sentiment. The sentiment stamp comes from Tim Holtz Way With Words set. The circles were die cut from Simon Says Stamp Lemon Glitter Cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Circle Loops.

Barbara created a page of her Art Journal using the stamp set Floral Trims by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous. She colored the stamp with Tim Holtz Ranger Watercolors Pencils and she added the stencil Brush Arch together with Distress Crackle Paste Opaque. She completes the page with a portrait from Idea-ology Photomatic Pack.

Cheiron played with all the Back from the Vault colors of Distress Paint to create her journal page in the Small Dylusions Creative Journal. She layered gesso, paints and used some of her favorite stencils including Brush Mark and Stitches. She finished her page with a Photomatic Photo, a Salvaged Tag and a Snarky Small Talk sticker.

Emma was inspired to colour the world and created a double paged journal layout in the Small Dylusions Creative Journal. She used Tim Holtz Palette Collage Paper as a background before adding a Paper Doll, Memoirs Ephemera, Organic Layers and some gold embossed die cut Sizzix/Tim Holtz Media Marks and Alphanumeric Label lettering.

Kath created a page in her Dylusions Media Journal using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Floral Trims and typography from The Inspector on the background, Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements Embark Fabric to decorate and Sizzix Alphanumeric Emporium Thinlits for the page title.

Macarena is addicted to fungis and mushroom photograph searching for them everywhere so she decided to put them on her Art Journal page using Katzelkraft Mushpignons stamps and Tim Holtz Script stencil for the background. She finished the scene with one of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Snapshots Volume 2.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Ranger DYLUSIONS INK SPRAY SET OF 6 Dyan Reaveley on the background, then stamped it with Studio Light MY GIRLS Clear Stamps ABM Mixed-Up Collection and colored it with Zig Clean Color 30 COLOR SET A Real Brush.

Zoey used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Snapshots Volume 2 and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Collage Layer Frames to decorate her little cluster. She also used Tim Holtz Idea-ology Organic Layers and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Quote Chip Labels to decorate her other page.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
