Helloooooooooooooo!  I hope you've had a great week!  Today I'm sharing some daily pages from my journal.  I hope you find some inspiration in my pages!  Please note: The "f-word" is featured on one of the spreads in my journal.  If this is offensive to you, or you're at work, or you're with your children, please stop reading now.  


I think of my journals as a place to experiment.  I've been practicing drawing profiles and you can see that on this page.


Remember this stamp?  I blogged about it at the beginning of the month.  To make the prints pop, I used a white pen to trace the lines.


This page features one of my favorite things about my Junque Journal: an uneven edge!


I collect leftovers in my art journal.  This was an image I cut with my ScanNCut when I was working on some ideas for Chinese New Year decorations.  


Moonlight pens make lettering pop!


A white pens really makes the stamped date and day pop!


A painting instructor once told me to stop using so much white.  It's good advice, but I can't help myself!


This spread features a gift bag that my friend Birgit gave me.


You can see in the photo that my hand is in the bag.  When I got the bag it was white with the black lettering on it.  I added the black and white lines.


Have I mentioned that I love stamps?!  The black prints are from a hand carved stamp.  The red ones are from my new line of stamps with Impression Obsession: dots and days of the week.


Here's the back side of that fabulous uneven edge!


And here's the back of the bag.


More stamping.  I need patterns in my art.  They make me happy.  Sometimes I make them with stencils, sometimes with stamps, and sometimes I hand draw them, but I always have patterns!


This print was made using a hand carved stamp.  I used two colors of ink to print it.  (It looks like more than two colors because of where the colors meet and blend.)


I used the dash lines to help blend the back of the bag into the rest of the page.  You can hardly see the seam where I inserted the bag!

And because so many of you said you loved having the supply list, here's another one!


Here is this week's linky list:
