I'm Back - with Friends with Flair

This is the cover to my Soul Restoration Art Journal.  I am altering an old library book.   It's very different, but I wanted to use a quilt square made by my grandmother.  When she passed away, we found a collection of quilt squares that she made that had never been made into a quilt.  There aren't enough to make a quilt, but I saved them to use for something.  So, when I was getting ready to start this project, I ran across them and decided to incorporate one into the cover of the album.  I used the gate stamp from the Bold Insight Store Kit.  LOVE this set of stamps.  I used paper from Daisy D.  The felt scroll is from Queen & Co, and then I used acrylic paints and mod podge.

This is the inside cover.  It is mixed acrylic paints and I used my favorite bird stamp from the Growing In Unity
set of stamps--my all time favorite set of Unity stamps.  I love the sets created by our Unity Artists--just amazing creativity.

This is my first attempt at making an art journal.  I will share some other pages with later.  Art journaling is fun--out of my comfort zone, but lots of fun!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop.  Don't forget--there will be a winner from the random comments left on the different blogs.
