Art Marks 30 Day Challenge

I made this journal with rings at the side in a class a few years ago and have never used it. I thought this would be perfect for this challenge, as I can pull the pages out to work on them separately. For this challenge Rae would like you to make marks. You kind of have to decide what kind of marks you like to make so look through previous journal pages and see what your marks are. Rae does give you a sheet to download with some of her marks she likes to use and the is another page to download with the prompts for the 30 days. 
I have given myself another mini challenge to sew on all 30 pages with my sewing machine. 

This is my cover I might change this at the end to look more like something I would do.. 
I have used all Decoart Americana paints on my pages and I am loving trying out different colour combinations.

Day 1, Petal-like
I thought with the prompt of petal I kind of drew some petals like they had dropped off the flowers.

Day 2, Needlework
I used my hand carved stamps for this one and added some circles of scrapbook paper. 

Day 3, Concentric
Cut circles of dictionary paper and added a quote

I am very late linking this up with Paint Party Friday but am going to pop around and check out what people have been up to this last week. 

Have a great day

  1. These are wonderful! I love all you first few pages. The sewing is so neat, and great color combinations too. I am doing Creative Jumpstart 2017 with nathalie Kalbach and Rae was one of the demo instructors this past week. Have a great time! I look forward to seeing your pages next week, too.

  2. How lovely they are too. The colour combinations work extra well and your sewing is a delightful addition. Cheers :D)

  3. I love these beautiful pieces...gorgeous colours!!
