More Pages from my Journal

Around 3-4 weeks ago I had posted the pictures from a handmade journal that I had made to take with me to India. Here are more pages from it.

A handmade chevron stamp...

Layers of stenciling and stamping have been done on all the pages.

Yet another stamp that I had made sometime ago. I also used a doily on this page. 

Doodling on painted deli paper

I really enjoyed putting these pages into a book. Sadly I still have not journaled in it. Maybe one of these days...
After coming back I finished three art pages on my daily journal based on the Documented Life Project challenge.
 Week-15: Create a page using monochromatic color. I used different shades of pink and created the above page.
  Week-17: Draw your favorite shoes. I have always wanted to try and sketch shoes and this challenge pushed me to try it. Well, let me admit, they are not as simple as they look. I went through some you tube videos and tried the above sketches.Dear Sherrie (Happy Tiler),I did think of you and your love for sketching shoes when I did this-:)  

Week-18: Add a quote to your page. I'm the queen of procrastination-:( and hence I chose the above quote that did inspire me to do all the above three pages at one go.
I'm linking my post to Paint Party Friday and Art Journal Everyday
Wishing you all a Happy Mother's Day in advance.
