Journal page

It is ages since I opened my journal so here's a quick page I put together over the weekend...
This is continuing my work with Color Burst powders and tree images - you might remember my makes from this post
I have been clearing out clutter at my Mum and Dad's - several boxes of old books which have unfortunately fallen apart - so I used some pages of this one as a first layer.

I then added trees - cut with a Tim Holtz die.

Next a scattering of Color Burst powder and spritzing - and a bit of painting to the bottom...

Next 'black soot' distress ink around the edges to focus our eyes in...

My facebook/crafty friend Amanda sent me a RAK of some Halloween goodies -
so I decided to add this cat die cut...

Finally I added a sprinkling of sequins...

What do you think? Fun to do anyway...
I will link my page to

Happy Crafting!


  1. This is fantastic.
    Love the coloring.
    I need to get the Color burst
    out and play with the again.
    I tried them once for my
    bible journaling but I
    couldn't control the colors.
    they worked great for the
    trees. Love the kitty.
    thanks for sharing.

  2. Very cool. I really love the background layers and how it all comes together in glorious colour. It's really super AND it has a cool cat :-D
