I spent my entire day cleaning. All I really wanted to do was get to my crafty space and play with my new Canvo journal from Catherine Pooler Designs.
I really enjoy adding touches to the pages that I’ve created.
I like that I have the chance to doodle and experiment without worrying about it being perfect. I’m creating it just for me and the only people who see it will be, well…you. I don’t think you’re judging me.
I wonder if your thinking about what you would do differently…ha! Get yourself a journal and get going.
Here is my December page so far:
Sorry about the photo…I had a lot of glare and I just wanted to take a couple of pictures and get this blog post done. I’m anxious to share!
I used one of CP’s older Christmas sets called Here We Come A-Caroling. The shine is coming from the Powder Blue embellishment mousse. I was experimenting with making my snowbanks with this fabulous medium because I love the shine it gives. The music notes are done on black with CP’s Lime Ricky embossing glitter with some silver mousse over the top.
The one thing I wish I hadn’t done was to experiment with the Snow Marker I got a couple of months ago. I thought it would add some sparkle to my snowbanks, but instead it looks like I colored a line where the snowbanks are. I need to practice with that on scrap paper before I use it again.
This is a good view for you to see the musical notes stamp with the glitter. I actually tried to stamp it directly on the page, but it did not stamp well for some reason. I had to create a piece to pop over the messy stamping.
It’s all an experiment!
Tomorrow I have to vacuum and clean the shower…I should also cover the rest of the outdoor furniture before it snows here.
All I really want to do is play with my journal!
Have a great day!
