55th birthday ‘year’ party and getting back to an Art Journal page…

Soooo…….what do you do when you’re put in a situation where you have an opportunity to spend the weekend with people you never hung around with in high school to celebrate your 55th birthday ‘year’ at a weekend party?? You make your husband decide if we’re going or not of course….lol!!   Then when he decides you’re going, what do you do??  You put a smile on your face and agree to go of course!   To say I was excited to be going would be a lie.  To say I was a little nervous and apprehensive about going would be an understatement. I wouldn’t re-live my high school years for a million dollars.  I’d survived the party we’d gone to 5 years before for the 50th birthday ‘year’ party without any scars…..lol.  Sooo, we went.  I can say with complete honestly I actually had a good time.  I got to know these people a little bit more.  It’s funny how your outlook on how you perceive people to still be after 35 years can change.  I only wanted to run away once and that’s when they were reading through the year book and got to my name…..lol.  But I made it through that as well and am now looking forward to our next milestone.  Here’s to another 5 years and our 60th in Palm Springs!!

Okay, so enough about high school…….it seems like it’s been so long since I pulled out one of my Art Journals.  I have to say it felt so good to pull out those supplies and just sit and let it flow.  I’ve been making allot of ATC’s lately, which have been fun, but my bigger pages is where I get my best feelings of just doing what I love to do. So, here’s what I created the other day with supplies from Limor Webber’s on-line store called Limor Webber Desings.    I used one of her new Lindy’s Stamp Gang sets called Tres Chic and used the sprays and a few of the embossing powders over Gesso.  Love, love, LOVE this set!  Here’s the page I created which I’m going to enter into the Lindy’s Stamp Gang monthly color challenge:



My inspiration for the page came from a YouTube video I watch by Maremi SmallArt located here.

Supplies used were:  Faber Castell Whipped Spackle, Prima stencil called Bubbles by Finnabair (no longer in stock), a couple of her background stamps from both the Dina Wakely Textures set and one of the Big Red stamps called Quantum Background.  All of these supplies are also available in her store and I added direct links to each product at the end of the blog post.  The black drips were done with some Liquitex ink! in Carbon Black that is also in the store.  The Prima bling I used I received from her in one of her destash grab boxes she sold along with the Prima flowers  and the Scrap FX and Fab Scraps chipboard used.  Here’s a few close up’s of the page:
