When you have EXTRAs.....Think "RE-use or RE-cycle"

I've been keeping this extra fabric (bought from Ikea) from my 4th journal that i made, and not wanting to waste it, i decided to make a 'mini' journal!!

but, this time, i did some 'sewing' on it

already did some doodling, and also prep some of the pages with gesso and acrylics, just in case i wanna 'travel' with my mini journal
so instead of using ribbon to 'wrap' around it, i sew an elastic band to close the mini journal
really, really, fun and easy to make a personalised journal! i gave a 'tutorial' on how to make a journal to my friend Regina, and she got addicted!!!
and then, what about extra scraps/stripes of papers??? what did i make?
please DON'T throw them away!!
Here's what you can do.....(mixed-media cards)
glue/collage them on a cardstock (any size, any colour) and start 'playing', you can do so many things with all the extra scraps/stripes of pattern papers that you have






also a great way to use up all the 'tiny bits' of die-cut cardstocks (if you dunno where to put them in your layout!)
Oh yes! my Art journal entries....
from my 'painting' journal, this one's entitled "neighbours"
because i love my neighbours too!
i'll be back again, with more artsy stuff.
Take care! Ta-Ta....;-)

Art Journal updates and more ....

Helloooooo everyone!!! So, its Friday today, I AM SO TIRED!! Age's catching up (i guess!!) But that will not stop me from creating ART....(heees...)
First, about my latest entries

"my comfort zone"

i layered and glued 3 doilies, and cut the middle....

"i wanna know..."

just gotta add some pearls on her crown

This entry's from my 'painting' journal. Remember this....?
 the background.....(before)

i did some doodling....(after)


This is my altered 'Scrap A Tag' from Laines

After (front)


closer look...
sewed the edges and embellished it with charms

and something about polymer clay
i borrowed this book from the library, and tried some of the techniques. it was really easy and fun coz its not like the milliefiore techniques. just choose the colour of your clay, condition it, and then start stamping and painting, mixed-media style!!!
i did these 'mixed-media' mosaic using polymer clay, the techniques shown clearly in the book, by Laurie Mika were easy to!!

a 'mixed-media' polymer clay tag! how fun was that! gotta try this again sometime.
Have a creative and fun weekend!
