Paper Saturday

Hi you all!
These journal pages have been made mostly from some stamping try-outs while I was making my CAS cards last week. I wanted to see which combinations looked best....I just coloured in the irises and added a few square quotes and some simple line drawing to try to pull it all together. I am linking to Paper Saturdays and AJJ - Squares.

The stamps used are from Laurentz and Morgen, except for the circle which is from Hein design.






And this lovely orange moon lit up the sky 2 nights ago.

 
Have a great weekend, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by.

  5. Really enjoying your experiments with the squares, and I don't really like squares - don't use them - however somehow you have made them so beautiful. LOVE the Iris - very nice - colour is perfect. Beautiful pages, Valerie. hugs, Donna

  8. Beautiful work, Valerie, the dragonflies and flowers look as if they are just floating lightly on the page. I wonder if you are going to make more in CAS style. I love everything you do, your work has so much life. That's a great photo of the orange moon.

    1. I am not sure if I want to do more CAS stuff. Occasionally, yes, but not regularly!

  9. Yes, it's good to try out other styles, but we have our own artistic voice.

  14. Okay the jig is up. You are a famed artist who comes to Blogland to play. I don't know what you were trying out for but I think you made it!! I wish you would do some tutorials on basic design - better yet write a book! Your journal pages are wonderful and a big BRAVO to the moon!!
