Ok, now that we have the details out of the way I want to share my project with you.  I really needed some "play" time.  I rarely get to make something just because and sadly I haven't worked in my art journal in a long, long time.  I got myself a little Christmas present- the smaller size of the Dylusions Creative Journal.  So my "WHITE" project for you this month, the first of the new year, is the first page of my new art journal.  

I had a loose idea of what I wanted to do.  It deviated from the original plan (doesn't it always?), but I had lots of fun creating it.  I tried hard not to over think it and just keep going with it.  

The little rectangles are a mix of the *brand new* domino sized stamps from Paper Wings Productions.  They are stamped on manila cardstock with brown StazOn.  The clip art images are from the new domino sized clip art sheets from Paper Wings Productions.  I used my favorite Sticky Back Canvas Transfer Technique on them.  

There is layer upon layer of gesso, Malted Milk Paint Dabber, Dylusions White Spray, Silver Shimmer spray and anything else within arm's length from me that looked kind of neutral.  

I adhered everything very loosely, letting the edges purposefully hang off the page.  I doodled a lot with a pencil and white UniBall pen.  

 So there you have it.  Thanks for joining me today and letting me share some art journaling with you.  Enjoy the rest of the hop!
