Lately all of my creative efforts have been going in a more artsy direction. I've done a lot with the art journal and learning new things that I've tried on other projects.
One of the things I did was make a little book. When I say little I do mean little. It measures 3 3/4 x 2 3/4 and is made from one piece of paper. You can find a tutorial for the basic book on Splitcoast Stampers
After making the book I started decorating the pages. For this one I used mostly markers.
The front cover
And the inside pages
I used the saying that Connie used on the tag attached to my giveaway prize.
I had the help of printables and rubber stamps for this one.
And this one is my favorite. I love the bright sunny colors. The Think Happy Be Happy is a stamp and the words on the opposite page I wrote on a piece of paper, cut them out and glued them on the page. The yellow and orange was done with marker and the off white color is paint that I dabbed on with my finger. The dark red circles on the left hand page was a straw that I dipped into paint. Lastly I used a pencil to add some shadow around the words.
