Happy Friday

Last year I joined a project named The Circle Journal where we 15 ladies started creating beautiful  art in 15 journals. I think we started last July/August and now it is coming to an end. It has been an incredible journey where I got the wonderful opportunity to see some stunning art done by all these talented women. This journey has also inspired and motivated me to come up with 15,( no, 17 pages) of art for all the members including myself.

But unfortunately two of these amazing ladies lost their journals while they were being sent via the postal department and still we have not been able to trace them-:( But all the rest of the members agreed to create 2 new pages for them. Hopefully soon they will get their original journals back.

This is a page that I created for one of the Circle Journal members.
"Never give up on a Dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it The time will pass anyway." Earl Nightingale
 I created the background on deli paper using acrylic paints, stamps, stencils, and other ephemera for texture
I used water color paper for the elephants, painted them with Twinkling H2O's and outlined them with black and white pens.
These are the supplies that I used for creating the page.
This is a water color sketch that I did after being inspired by my artsy friend Laurie May's beautiful sketches.
Linking my page to PPF and Julie's Art Journal Everyday

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend


  1. Sorry that 2 journals got lost, things like that happen, but it is very upsetting, I love the pages you have made, the colours, and the backgrounds. What is deli paper? Have a nice weekend, hugs, Valerie

  2. Love your beautiful pages. Happy PPF, Annette x

  3. 15 participants, and 2 lost their journals!? That's a high percentage! And so annoying! I really hope they will be found, such a shame. It's good that you're making new pages for them. Love the pages you did!

  4. Gorgeous pages!! I'm sure they' be loved... That's awful that they were lost...I hope they turn up. I'm sure they're very expensive to send too!

    Hugs Giggles

  9. oh how disappointing to have two journals lost. Hopefully they will come eventually. It's a lovely gesture for the group to make extra pages in place of the missing art. Your pages are beautiful Susan- love the elephants!

So nice that others made extra for them!!
